This recipe comes from Joy in Texas.  You could have this dish for any kind of meal that you wanted. The great thing about it, is it’s easy to make and easy on the pocket book if you are on a budget.  She has added some notes at the bottom.

Ingredients

2 small eggs
1 avocado, halved and pitted
2 slices cooked bacon, crumbled
2 teaspoons chopped fresh chives, or to taste
1 pinch dried parsley, or to taste
1 pinch sea salt and ground black pepper to taste

Directions

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
Crack the eggs into a bowl, being careful to keep the yolks intact.
Arrange avocado halves in a baking dish, resting them along the edge so avocado won’t tip over. Gently spoon 1 egg yolk into the avocado hole. Continue spooning egg white into the hole until full. Repeat with remaining egg yolk, egg white, and avocado. Season each filled avocado with chives, parsley, sea salt, and pepper.
Gently place baking dish in the preheated oven and bake until eggs are cooked, about 15 minutes. Sprinkle bacon over avocado.

Notes:
Joy added cheese and salsa to the recipe.  Also, please note that the putting the egg in the bowl and spooning the egg white into the avocado is important because there will be too much egg white.

Italian Vegetable Medley

May 18, 2016

This recipe is modified from the “Bruchetta Pasta Salad” recipe.  I left out the pasta and made it completely vegetarian to have a more healthy meal.  It turned out excellent, light and refreshing.  The perfect summer dish when you have fresh vegetables coming out of the garden.
