Baked Avocado Boats

Serves: 6

Preparation: 10 minutes

Cooking: 25 minutes



3 ripe avocados, pitted and halved
6 eggs
3 slices bacon - optional
1 tomato, roughly chopped
¼ cup parsley, finely chopped
Freshly chopped chives for garnish
Juice of 1 lime
Salt & freshly ground pepper



Preheat oven to 180°C fan bake 

Place avocados in a baking dish, then crack eggs into a bowl. Using a spoon, transfer yolks to each avocado half, then spoon in as much egg white as you can fit without spilling over

Place bacon in the same baking dish next to the avocados

Season avocados with salt and pepper and bake until whites are set, and yolks are no longer runny, about 20-25 minutes

Chop the bacon into small pieces and sprinkle over avocados with the tomato, parsley, chives and lime juice

Serve with a spoon
