Fit Feast: baked egg & avocado

I saw this article on Buzzfeed the other day and was drawn to the avocado and egg combo. So, today I thought  I'd try it out to see what all the hype is about.

It's the perfect post-gym snack: eggs are packed with protein and avocado is full of good fats, vitamin K and fibre.

To make it just the right size for one person, you'll need just two things (pretty self explanatory really):

  • 1 egg

  • An avocado


Preheat your oven to 180 degrees.

Chop your avocado in half and scoop out the pip. Take a teaspoon and carve out a little more to make room for all that yolk.

Place your avocado half (or halves, depending on how many you're making) on a baking tray - don't try and crack your egg into them before hand.. moving runny raw egg from chopping board to baking tray is tricky, sticky and poses too much danger potential!

Crack your egg and let the yolk fall where the pip once was.


Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes, until the white has set.




It's really nice, perfect if you fancy something quick, easy and healthy to eat. The avocado was still a little bit hard on mine so you might want to leave yours in a little more towards the 20 minute mark - but this'll depend on how big your 'cado is.
