Perfect for breakfast, or any time of day…
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 15-20 minutes
1 ripe avocado
2 fresh eggs
a pinch of pepper
1/2 tbsp chopped chives
1 Preheat the oven to 180˚C/R4.
2 Slice the avocado in half and remove the pit. Scoop out 2 tablespoons of flesh from the centre of the avocado – just enough so the egg will fit snugly in the centre.
3 Place the avocado halves in a small baking dish. Do your best to make sure they fit tightly.
4 Crack an egg into each avocado half. Put the yolk in first and let the whites spill in to fill up the rest of the shell.
5 Place in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes (cooking time will depend on the size of your eggs and avocado). Make sure the egg whites have enough time to set.
6 Remove from oven and season with pepper and chives.
