Avocado Egg “Bird Nest” Bowl
Makes 4 Servings
1 large egg
Freshly ground black pepper
1/4 c. shredded cheddar
1 slice cooked bacon, crumbled (optional – if you want more protein in another meal remove this)
green onions, sliced
- Cut avocado in half and remove pit. But each half into 2 (lengthwise). Making what looks like “O”s. Hollow out middles with a paring knife.
- In a large, nonstick skillet over medium-low heat, melt 1 tablespoon butter. Place avocado slices into skillet and crack an egg into the center. Season with salt and pepper.
- Cover skillet and cook until egg is cooked to your desired doneness, about 5 minutes for a just runny egg. Sprinkle cheese on top of each slice, cover with lid again and cook until the cheese is melted, a minute more.
- Repeat with remaining ingredients. Garnish with bacon and green onions.
