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!
And who doesn’t love breakfast cooking itself while you’re getting ready for the day? Be sure to try Sheet Pan Banana Bread Pancakes, Smoked Mozzarella & Prosciutto Breakfast Pizzas and Slow Cooker Banana Coconut Oatmeal. Start your day the easy way!
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!
