Baked eggs in avocado

This is another very simple and easy breakfast idea.  It is perfectly Primal and has the feel of something really special with out any mess or fuss.

It is very normal for me to have an avocado and a cup of tea for my breakfast.  The other day I cut one that I was sure would be the perfect texture and sadly, it way to hard for my liking.

Jim ask if we could try "that egg thing" with it.  He is a big fan of eggs cooked in something.

The avocado is not good to me so why not?

1 avocado
2 eggs
spices and toppings of your choice    We tried red pepper, cheese, salt, and bacon.  Jim said it would be great just plain and topped off with salsa.

Pre-heat the oven to 425.  Slice the avocado in half, take the pit out and situate the two halves cut side up on a baking dish so that it doesn't tip over.  If it is giving you trouble just stick a couple tooth picks each side to stabilize it. 

Crack the egg right into the middle of the avocado.  Make sure to get the yolk in the hole where the pit was or the egg will slide off.

Add what ever spices you want to the top.

Place in the oven and cook till it is as done as you like your eggs.   Its just that easy!
