Avocado Egg Boats

Apparently these avocado egg boats were all the rage on Pinterest recently according to my different food blogs, but I'm not sure where the original idea came from. It's really a very simple idea.

All you do is heat the oven to 375°, cut an avocado in half, remove the pit and then use it as a ramekin to bake an egg for about 15 minutes. We wrapped the avocado ramekin in some aluminum foil then added some salt, pepper, and shredded cheese before baking. After baking we added some of our favorite egg accompaniments, truffle oil and crumbled bacon. There are numerous options for cheese, herbs, and other toppings including a coating of Panko bread crumbs to create a faux-fried avocado. Fried avocado is something I always saw on menus back in Texas, but never actually tried. I'm beginning to wish that I had experimented eating avocados more in Texas outside of plain guacamole.

The creamy texture of the avocado is nice with the runny egg yolk. You might need to make the hole of the avocado a little bigger or else the entire egg white might run out instead of just a little bit.
