Test Kitchen: Baked Egg in Avocado

image

(From March 13, 2015)

Hahahaaa!! If I used Pinterest more, I’d post this as a #fail. This recipe looked simple enough, but nooooo…. I learned a bunch of things though. I might be willing to try again. I’d better – I have a Costco-sized bag of avocados.

Score: D

Recipe: http://www.popsugar.com/fitness/Baked-Eggs-Avocado-Recipe-30787252

Lessons:
– Scoop out more avocado before adding the egg. I thought I scooped out enough. Nope.
– The recipe says to put the avos in a baking dish and get a tight fit. That’s so the avos stay upright and the egg doesn’t spill out.
– My eggs runneth over immediately when I cracked them into the avos. That caused a nice, glazy skin to form. #fail
– The avo skin gets very soft after being baked for 15-20 minutes. And they are quite hot. I was not willing to hold the “food item” with one hand and scoop with the spoon. I ended up peeling the avo skin off and knife-and-forking it. Since the egg had skinned over, it did not mind being manhandled.
– Taste: It tasted like warm avo and egg. Big whoop. Haaa!!
