Baked Eggs in Avocado with Spicy/Sweet Bacon

School year ends tomorrow!! Yay!! The first Monday morning you don't have to wake up and go to work is the best morning. My peanut and I have a lot planned this summer, starting with swim lessons. We are members at the local community center and have been going to swim after school... can't wait to go in the middle of the day :) Funny the rules they have posted about bathing suits... I get that it is family place, but the sign cracks me up- no string bikinis, thongs, see-through, etc.... yet there are old men in speedos... ew. It's actually hard to find suits that fit me- I don't own, and don't want to buy a one- piece, and to find one that doesn't have strings poses another challenge. Not to mention squatting a lot more has made even the most appropriate bottoms look inappropriate from last summer to this summer. ;) Oh well, good advertising for Maven. Hehehe.

There are a lot of recipes for baked avocados out there. I noticed a lot of them have very long cooking times... nobody wants to wait that long!! So I cranked up the temperature of the oven and topped mine with something spicy, sweet and salty! Yum! 

Baked Eggs in Avocado with Spicy/Sweet Bacon

- 2 Avocados
- 4 Eggs
- 4 Pieces of Bacon, cut in 1/2" pieces
- 2 tsp Maple Syrup
- 1/8 tsp Cayenne Pepper

Preheat oven to 425 degrees

1.  Cut the avocados in half, and take out the pit. You need to scoop out about two tablespoons of the avocado around the center so the egg will fit without overflowing. I bake mine in a muffin tin so they stay upright but you could easily use a cookie sheet.

2.  Gently crack an egg into each avocado half. This works best if you let the yolk drop in first.

3. Bake 15-20 minutes until the whites of the egg are solid.
4. While the eggs are baking, add the bacon to a skillet over medium heat. Cook until crispy. Toss with the maple syrup and pepper. 

5. When the avocados are done they easily come out of their peel... top each with 1/4 of the bacon. Enjoy!
