Bacon, Egg & Avocado Appetizer

beaappetizerI mean with a combination like bacon, avocado and eggs how could it taste bad?

This is such a cute little idea for an appetizer at a dinner party. I made the mistake of trying to make it a main course; but, these cute little bursts of richness would be perfect to set out on a serving plate while you mix and mingle with dinner guests. Remember to eat them with a fork.

These are so easy to make and of course *gluten free.* All you will need is: avocados (I used 2 large ones), cage free eggs (1 per avocado half) and some turkey bacon (let’s be a tad healthier here!)

First cut the avocados in half and scoop out a lot of the inside. Create a nice little pocket to place the egg in. Do this to all your avocados. Keep the excess avocado for a salad or another dish the next day.

Next crack open the eggs and pour the yolk and all right into the hole in the avocado. My avocados tended to lean, and some of the yolk ran out – so make sure those halves of avocado are level before you crack the egg over them.

And – then cut up some turkey bacon and sprinkle these pieces on top of your little avocado bowls.

Preheat the oven to 425 – and bake the avocados for about 20 minutes. I would just check on them from time to time. You may need to bake longer than 20 minutes if you like your eggs well done.

Let them cool for about 10 minutes and dig in!
