June 3rd is National Egg Day and what better way to celebrate than with a Baked Egg In Avocado? And yes, the most important meal of the day is breakfast. You’ve heard it over and over and it is true. Your body is coming out of an all night fast and needs to power up for the day. Eggs are an ideal source of protein. Avocados are an ideal source of healthy fat and nutrients. Put them together in a Baked Egg In Avocado and you have a powerhouse of nutrition for breakfast! Best of all, they’ll bake in the oven while you’re getting ready for your day….bonus! I’ve also found an easy way to balance the avocado halves in the oven. Just arrange them on a muffin pan and they’ll actually balance themselves quite nicely! Here’s my favorite muffin pan by Calphalon!
