Baked Egg Avocado Boats

Breakfast, Recipes

It’s Monday again and like many, I am trying to set my intentions for the week. This week I am focusing on health because I splurged this weekend (too many donuts) and health is personal wealth. I am starting my day with this quick and easy breakfast! Baked Avocado Egg Boats are Keto friendly and easy to make. The two that I made consist of avocado, egg, salt, pepper, garlic powder, paprika and cayenne pepper. I topped one with bacon bits and chives and the other with a cherry tomato and chives. This meal can be tailored to be keto friendly and/or vegetarian.

INGREDIENTS  

  • 1 Avocado Halved and Pitted
  • 2 Eggs
  • Salt, Pepper, Paprika, Garlic Powder and Cayenne Pepper to taste
  • Bacon Bits, Cherry Tomato Optional

INSTRUCTIONS 

  • Preheat oven to 425°F.
  • Slice each avocado in half lengthwise and remove the pit.
  • Scoop out enough of the avocado flesh so that the egg can fit inside fully.
  • Sprinkle avocado halves with salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder, cayenne and crack 1 egg into each half.
  • OPTIONAL: Add bacon bits and/or sliced cherry tomatoes to top the eggs
  • Bake in oven for 15-20 minutes. 15 minutes will create a over medium yolk.

NOTES

To avoid spilling the egg you can place in a cupcake pan, flesh up to hold avocado still or you can use toothpicks and put them on each side of the avocado to keep it steady on a pan.

Wild Blueberry Chévre Braid

Breakfast, Dessert, Recipes

Any goat cheese lovers out there? Last Friday I went to the grocery store to buy cheese and crackers and when I was picking out cheese I saw Boarshead Wild Blueberry Chévre Goat Cheese that I couldn’t resist putting in my cart. On my way to the checkout, I saw some puffed pastry’s and thought, “I bet this cheese would taste good in one of those.” So here we are! If you want the easy and fast way of making this you can buy frozen sheets by Pepperidge Farm at most grocery stores or you can follow this easy recipe to make your own by Baking A Moment.

  • 1 Egg

INSTRUCTIONS 

  • Preheat over to 400F and adjust rack to middle of oven.
  • Lay puff pastry sheet on cutting board and cut sides at an angle leaving 2-3 inches in the middle uncut.
  • Place 1/4 cup blueberries in the middle of the puff pastry. I like to smash them first so that they don’t roll around.
  • Cut cheese into thin slices and lay in the middle of the puff pastry on the blueberries.
  • Combine 3/4th cup blueberries, 1/4 cup water, 1/4 tsp vanilla and 2 tablespoons sugar in a small sauce pan and heat on medium-high heat until it is brought to a boil. Stir constantly until sauce is thick.
  • Pour sauce onto of cheese and puff pastry, keeping sauce in the center area that is not cut.
  • Fold in each side of the puff pastry alternating from one side to the next in order to create the “braided” look.
  • Make egg wash by combining 1 egg with a little water and whisking together.
  • Brush top of braided pastry with egg wash – This is optional but this will allow the top to turn golden brown.
  • Place on non-stick baking sheet or baking sheet lined with parchment paper, place in center rack and cook for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown and “puffy”.
  • Serve warm or cold and enjoy!

Bruschetta Inspired Avocado Toast

Breakfast, Recipes

Avocado toast has become very populate over the last few years but how many of you just eat avocado on toast? Boring! Change it up with this Bruschetta inspired avocado toast. It is easy to make and tastes incredible. Try with a sunny side up egg, scrambled eggs or no egg. I have tried all three and they all taste great. If you are looking for a vegan or vegetarian option then just skip the egg and use some extra avocado to fill you up. 

INGREDIENTS  

  • 1 Slice Bread
  • 4-5 Cherry Tomatoes halved
  • 1 tsp Balsamic Glaze
  • 1 Egg
  • ½ Avocado
  • 1 Handful Arugula
  • Salt & Pepper to taste

INSTRUCTIONS 

  • Put bread in toaster
  • While bread is toasting, prepare tomatoes and avocado by cutting tomatoes in halves and slicing avocado into slivers. Save other half of the avocado but putting in a container or plastic bag. To prevent browning, rub a tiny amount of lemon juice on avocado before putting away.
  • Take toast out and place on plate, spread avocado on toast, and put a handful of arugula on avocado and top with cherry tomatoes.
  • Cook an egg sunny side up or over easy. The best way to do this is to have anon-stick pan, heat it on low and then place egg in pan on low heat until cooked to your liking. You don’t want to turn the egg over unless you prefer your eggs cooked all the way through or if you are going for a fried egg. Lightly season with salt and pepper.
  • Top the toast with egg, drizzle balsamic glaze on top and ENJOY!

NOTES

  • Chopping up the arugula and tomatoes with the balsamic glaze can make it easier to eat but it won’t plate as nice. 
  • Easily make this into a sandwich by using two pieces of bread of putting in between a pita bread. 
  • Adding pickled onion is a great touch if you are an onion lover. Simply slice red onion and let sit in some vinegar for 15-20 minutes and place on top of arugula.
