Avocado egg breakfast recipe is a fantastically healthy, paleo, diet conscious breakfast that is easy to prepare and fast to make.
Avocado Egg Breakfast Recipe
The Avocado Egg Breakfast Recipe is a healthy alternative to eggs and bacon. This recipe is a good mix of protein and fruit all tucked into a ball of goodness called an avocado. Despite the simplicity of the avocado breakfast recipe, there are a couple of things to be aware of. First the avocado’s need to be propped so that the egg doesn’t spill out when you are baking them. For this, you might consider a muffin pan or anything that will keep the avocado level while it bakes. Also, if you like your eggs runny 15 to 20 minutes may be enough time but if you like your eggs well done you may want to cook this longer. However, the longer this cooks, the more the avocado degrades and changes the consistency of it. I prefer the avocado egg breakfast less cooked, but you decide.
Why Avocado Is Good For Breakfast
Avocado is good for breakfast because it is a fruit and fruit is aways good to eat. That being said, fruit is good for you and you should try to incorporate it into your diet every day. While avocado does contain a lot of fat, it is a good healthy fat and you can use it to replace other fats such as butter, cheese, or sour cream. So to answer the question is it healthy to eat an avocado for breakfast? Yes, avocado is definitely good for breakfast. It is packed with nutrients and protein which are important for starting your day. Besides being a great fat replacement it is packed with lots of healthy nutrients such as the healthy monounsaturated fatty acids. Avocados also boast of having nearly 20 vitamins and minerals. Avocados are very healthy and make a great fat substitute. So enjoy that avocado, in moderation of course.
Prepping For Breakfast
Be sure to crack your eggs in a separate container before adding them to the avocado. This does two things. First, as a wise old chef once told me, by cracking eggs in a smaller, separate container, you can discover a bad egg before it degrades the whole batch. Second, by adding your yolk to the avocado first, you can then add only as much egg white as the whole from the seed will carry. Otherwise, you might be cracking your egg into an avocado and have half of it spilling over the sides of the avocado. Not a pretty site, trust me, I have done it.
Avocado Egg Breakfast Outdoors
If you plan on doing this avocado breakfast recipe outside, you will want a Dutch oven to bake it in. You will also want to make sure that whatever you use to prop up the avocado’s fits in your Dutch oven. Sprinkle some Parmesan cheese on top and serve with some pesto sauce or just salt and pepper. I really enjoyed this with just some Parmesan cheese and a sprinkle of salt and pepper to taste. The avocado egg breakfast is both delicious and fun to make. You have to try this!
