Baked Avocado Eggs Keto Recipe
- Preheat oven to 450° F. Line a small baking dish with parchment paper. Look for a small baking dish that would allow the avocado halves to stand upright. If you don`t have small baking dish you can use a toothpick to make your avocados stand upright.
- Cut the avocado in half lengthwise and remove the pit. Using a spoon, scoop out a little of the flesh of each avocado half – you want it to be large enough to accommodate a medium egg.
- Season the avocado halves with half of the kosher salt and black pepper, and place them in the prepared baking dish.
- Break each egg into a small bowl, then carefully slide the yolk, and as much as will fit from the white, into the center of each avocado half.
- Bake until whites are set, about 15 minutes. If the egg yolks have developed a thin crust while baking, remove it carefully with a small sharp knife.
- Season the baked avocado egg with the remaining kosher salt, freshly ground black pepper
and red pepper flakes, and garnish with chopped parsley. Serve immediately.
