Dreamy baked avocados
Evening lovelies! It is time for another recipe that I have finally gotten around to translating from Danish to English and this one is definitely a favorite of mine ♥ You already know that I love vibrant colorful food, but the most important thing is of course the flavor – and let me tell you, these babies are just absolutely delicious!
These stuffed and baked avocados might look all fancy, but they are so easy to make – all you need are avocados, pesto, eggs, fresh herbs and maybe a little crunch in the form of chopped pistachios, so yummy! I love to serve them both for breakfast or as a side dish for dinner. Their colorful and festive look makes them perfect for brunch and dinnerparties – they are always a big hit when I serve them for my friends and family! ♥
You can still find the recipe in Danish right here!
Your favorite pesto
Sea salt og peber
Chopped fresh herbs and pistachios – optional
Adjust the amounts to your needs, I usually serve half an avocado per person.
Start by preheating your oven to 200 c / 400 f. Then cut the avocados in half and remove the pits. If your avocados are small, then you might need to scoop out a bit of the avocado, so that there is room for the egg.
Add a bit of your favorite pesto to the avocado and then add an egg. I prefer to crack the egg into a bowl and then use a spoon to add the egg to the avocado – it makes it so much easier to transfer the egg and you can control how much of the egg white is added, so it doesn’t run over the edges if the theres isn’t enough room for the egg. Sprinkle the avocados with a little sea salt + pepper and add them to a baking tray.
Bake the stuffed avocados for about 15 minutes, but make sure to keep an eye on them – depending on how you like your eggs, you might need to give them a little more or a little less time. Serve the avocados warm with chopped fresh herbs (I like to use basil) and pistachios, enjoy! ♥
