    1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
    2. Crack the eggs into a bowl, being careful to keep the yolks intact.
    3. Arrange avocado halves in a baking dish, resting them along the edge to prevent them from tipping over. Gently spoon 1 egg yolk into the avocado hole. Continue spooning egg white into the hole until full. Do the same with the remaining avocado half. Season each filled avocado with chives, parsley, sea salt and pepper.
    4. Gently place baking dish in the preheated oven and bake until eggs are cooked, about 15 minutes. Top with chopped bacon and serve.

    I really enjoyed this for breakfast. What I wasn't prepared for is an uncooked egg. Generally, I like my eggs cooked hard, but with the texture of the avocado, I didn't even notice that the yolk wasn't completely cooked through. When prepping, I simply used an egg separator to keep the yolks intact. And to keep the avocado halves from tipping, I sliced off just enough of the skin so that it created a flat surface. Set the avocado half in the pan and voila - it doesn't tip! Quick, easy, and nutritious - I will definitely be making this one again!  -  07 Feb 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I modified this recipe by microwaving for 2 minutes on high instead of using the oven. Egg poached and was fine.  -  06 May 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Wow, I have just found my new go to breakfast. These were absolutely awesome. The buttery creaminess of the avocado and the richness of the egg make for a perfect combination. I only keep large eggs on hand so I did scoop out some of the avocado to accommodate the egg. Equally as good with or without the bacon.  -  03 Jan 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
