Avocados are usually an addition to a meal — think guacamole, avocado slices on a sandwich, or chopped and added to tacos.

 

 

But they can also be a meal on their own, and a delicious one at that, especially when baked with eggs and topped with a fresh and easy pico de gallo and lots of fresh summer herbs.

 

I like to make this when tomatoes are in season, as a winter tomato is pretty useless in my opinion. You can make a big batch of the pico and use it later on for chicken, fish, or eat with chips, and it only gets better after a day or two in the fridge.

 

To bake the avocado, you want a firm, but not rock hard avocado. Too ripe and you’ll end up with mush, so make sure you use it at just the right time. Once you cut in half and remove the pit, you may need to remove a bit from the center to make a well deep enough to crack your egg into. Then season with Ava’s Favorite Burger seasoning, add your egg, and bake.

 

While the eggs are baking, the homemade pico is as easy as chopping up some veggies and mixing them together. Once the eggs are done, top with the pico and enjoy a healthy, delicious breakfast or lunch.
