Next Level Baked Avocados




00 min


00 min


2 large ripe avocados

2 medium eggs

1 tablespoon (15 ml) heavy cream

2 slices bacon, cooked until crispy and crumbled

½ teaspoon (2 ml) kosher salt

¼ teaspoon (1 ml) black pepper

¾ cup (65 g) shredded Monterey jack cheese


Preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C). Cut the avocados in half lengthwise and remove the pits. Use a spoon to scoop approximately 1 tablespoon (15 ml) out of each half to create a bowl.

Place the avocados in a baking dish. If they won’t stay put without rolling, roll up pieces of aluminum foil to create little holders for them to rest in.

Whisk the eggs in a small bowl with the cream. Add the crumbled bacon, salt, and pepper. Spoon the egg mixture into the avocados.

Bake approximately 12 minutes or until the egg is just set. Remove from the oven and sprinkle the cheese evenly over the avocados. Bake 5 minutes more to lightly brown the tops.
