Baked Eggs In avocado


Preheat the oven to 450°F (230°C). Remove the pits from the avocados and scoop out a bit of the flesh, about 1 teaspoon, from each half to create a hole big enough for an egg.

Arrange the avocados on a small baking dish. Carefully break an egg into each avocado half. Alternatively crack each egg into a bowl first and then pour it into the avocado, so you don’t break the yolk. Season each avocado by sprinkling salt and pepper on top.

Bake the egg-filled avocados until your desired yolk consistency is reached, about 15 to 20 minutes. Top each with cotija and serve with a side of salsa.
