Mexican Avocado Egg Bake
Avocado baked egg is one of our most delectable and decadent breakfasts. There is no taste quite like creamy avocado with a perfectly cooked egg. Usually, we prepare
it as a casserole, but when we have guests for brunch, we usually jazz it up a little and cook it right in the avocado skins. Its hard to top Mother nature’s own presentation. In this case, Scoop out some of each avocado half to make room for the egg, then place each avocado in a ramekin and cook them individually. We like the yolks nice and runny, so we separate the yolk from the whites. We precook the whites, then add the yolks at the last minute to warm them into a yummy goodness.
