Egg in Avocado Breakfast

Egg in Avocado Breakfast Recipe-


(serves 2)

  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 medium ripe avocados (not overly soft)
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons dark chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp. (more or less, to taste) freshly ground fine sea salt*
  • 1-1/2 tsp. (more or less, to taste) freshly ground black peppercorns*
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 2-3 tablespoons water
  • 1 cup mixed greens (optional: dressed with olive oil, lime, salt and pepper)
  • 1 ripe tomato, rough chopped
  • ¼ cup fresh chopped cilantro leaves

* Many Americans who are serious about their cooking and health like to grind their salt and pepper fresh, with a salt and/or pepper mill. Freshly ground salt and pepper is better tasting, and sea salt is much better and healthier for you than processed table salt.

  1. Slice a small sliver off of each avocado side to make a stand for them.  Cut unpeeled avocados in half.  Remove the pit.  If the remaining hole is not very large, scoop out enough to hold the egg.  Sprinkle chili powder and salt and pepper over the top of the avocado.
  2. Heat a large skillet to medium high.  Add the olive oil, and allow it to heat.  Set the avocado halves into the oil cut side down.  Cook for 4-6 minutes or until the avocados are crispy.  Turn them over in the pan.
  3. Crack all four eggs gently into a bowl.  Scoop out a yolk, and set it into the hole of the avocado.  Do that with the remaining 3 yolks.  Spoon over whites to fill the holes to brimming.  Scatter the onion around the avocados.  Add the water, and cover the pan.  Cook for 7-10 minutes or until the eggs are set.
  4. Toss the greens with the olive oil, lime, salt and pepper.  Divide them among four plates.  Set an avocado on each plate.  Stir together the browned onion left in the pan, and spoon over the eggs.  Sprinkle chopped fresh tomato over each.  Garnish with cilantro.  Serve your Egg in Avocado Breakfast immediately, while still nice and hot. And, as always, for the true American breakfast ethnic experience, serve freshly brewed, dark roast coffee, and perhaps some freshly squeezed orange juice.
