Avocado, Bacon and Egg Boats


Happy Monday!

I have to share my lunch story with you today. It has been cold and snowy these last few days. Last night, rain moved in and quickly froze, leaving the roads a mess and no school for the kids or me today. Home, with hungry kids, means trouble in the kitchen.  After feeding them french toast for breakfast, soup and sandwiches for lunch, I was starving myself. Out of bread, I set about thinking what can I do with some eggs.

I combed through Pinterest and found many posts on cooking eggs in Avocado boats, my favorite is here Pinterest . Bam! That is what I wanted for lunch and I even had 1 lonely avocado. The Pinned Website called for foil boats for the avocado to baked in, I used a muffin tin.

Next, I used 1 slice of bacon cut in half  and added the half slice to each avocado, because bacon really does make everything better. Then I cracked an egg in the hole of each avocado half. Salt and peppered to taste. I put them in a preheated 375F oven. I let these bake for about 10 minutes and noticed on mine, the egg white were just starting to set.  I decided to switch off the oven and broiled the boats for about 2-3 minutes. This finished them perfectly.

I have to say these were fabulous! One of my favorite Pinterest recipes that I have tried. A must try for any Unprocessed meal or just lo

oking for something healthy
