Ingredients:
Avocado – cut in half with the pit removed
2 eggs – one for each half of the avocado
Sea Salt and Pepper

Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees.  Take half of the avocado and cut a small section off the back so it will be stable on your baking sheet.  Do the same to the other half.  If you have a big avocado then you will not need to make the pit whole bigger.  If you are using a smaller avocado, use a spoon to scoop out some avocado guts to make the hole bigger.

Sprinkle the avocado halves with with sea salt and pepper.  Crack an egg into each avocado half and place your baking sheet into the oven.  Bake for 15 to 20 minutes.   Baking time will dictate the yolk consistency.

Cilantro
