- ½ avocado
- Salt, paprika, chili powder, and lemon juice to taste
- 1 egg
- Cheddar cheese
Heat oven to 350.
Score ½ avocado and sprinkle with salt, paprika, chili powder and lemon juice.
Bake the avocado for 5 minutes.
While the avocado is in the oven, prepare one egg sunny side up or hard boiled.
Optional: Sprinkle egg with cheddar cheese.
Serve the egg over the avocado with a side of whole wheat toast.
Expert Tip: This recipe is for breakfast, but you can stuff avocados with salads, pasta sauce, meat and bean chili, and more to add some easy protein into your diet and get rid of pesky leftovers. If you’re going to bake it, I recommend being sure to cover the top with some kind of cheese that goes with your meal to make sure it’s not too messy.
