Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 ripe avocados, halved and pitted
  • 4 large eggs
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 slices bacon
  • Freshly chopped chives, for garnish

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Scoop 1 tablespoon of avocado out of each half to create more space for egg. Discard can be used for another recipe.
  2. Place hollowed avocados in a baking dish. Crack eggs, one at a time into a small bowl. Using a spoon, transfer one yolk to each avocado half, then spoon in as much egg white as will fit without spilling over.
  3. Season with salt and pepper and bake until whites are set and yolks are no longer runny, 20 to 25 minutes. Cover with foil if the avocados start to brown.
  4. While eggs are baking, cook bacon in a large skillet over medium heat, until crisp, 8 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate and chop.
  5. Top avocados with bacon and chives before serving.
