Baked Avocado and Eggs

So Saturday morning started as it always does, "Mommy what's for breakfast?". This time Shelly was more than prepared and actually excited that she didnt get to sleep in as late as she wanted. A trip to the grocery store on Friday evening prepared her to make baked avocado and eggs, a recipe she had been eyeing for a couple days. Over ripe bananas were also calling her name(blog post to come). In the kitchen she goes only to find a missing avocado... How does an avocado go missing? After checking her trunk she realized that baked avocado and eggs wasnt going to happen for everyone. That being said, she decided that she could still have it but she needed to create another recipe for the girls to make the other half of the avocadostretch. Along came a cheddar and avocado frittata! Check out both recipes below, including a chimichurri sauce that topped each dish

Ingredients

1 avocado

2 large eggs

Crushed red pepper, cumin, salt, and pepper- all to taste

Instructions

1. Preheat the oven to 375. Slice the avocado in half and remove the seed. Spoon out about a half inch of avocado from the middle- enough to hold an entire egg.

2. Move to a small baking dish. Season the avocado with salt and pepper.

3. Crack an egg into the avocado. Season with cumin, crushed red pepper, salt, and pepper- all to taste.

4. Bake on 375 for 15 minutes or until the eggs are set to your liking.

5. Enjoy!
