This is something quite exotic, but try it once and you will want to make it for every meal. Use two avocado halves per person.
Ingredients Serves 2
Fried bacon, crumbled 4 slices
Fresh eggs 4
Carefully choose the avocados. A gentle squeeze should enable you to find ripe and ready to eat. Do not use unripe avocados as they are too wooden. The New Zealand avocados in the shops are very nice.
Cut the avocados in half and extract the large seed. On a baking dish make a bed of rock salt for the avocados so they will sit firmly, and place the four halves on the dish.
Now crack the eggs and pour into the avocado halves. Try not to spill or break the yolk. It may be easier to crack the eggs into a bowl and lift out the yolks individually.
Add the pieces of bacon to the top (or bacon bits) and place in the oven at 425 degrees for 15 minutes. You can adjust this based on how you like your eggs cooked. Add some salt and ground black pepper and you have a magnificent and tasty breakfast.
You can adapt this recipe to use a covered skillet.
