Baked Eggs in Avocado & Pancetta Chips

Oh hey hey..

Recently I’ve been making easy weeknight dinners. Easy like, maybe don’t even require any cooking at all. Cause most of the time I eat by myself or I just cook for me and my brother at home, It’s relatively easier to make a quick meal rather than a fancy one.

*shameless plug* Follow me on IG, I update more frequently (@sweesan) send me some love ok !

And because I cook only for myself, it’s quite expensive.. LOL But I try to use the same or rather similar ingredients for 2 days in the row so I don’t waste any.

Like avocado, buying in a box of 3 is cheaper than just buying one. But because they have a short lifespan once it’s ripen, I have to eat it up quickly. It’s quite ridiculous to eat 3 avocado in one day, but I guess in 3-4 days, would still be ok.

Here’s a simple and quick yet delicious dish, that may be more suitable for brunch.

SUNDAY BRUNCH !! Who doesn’t love that.

I don’t know if it really needs a recipe. Because it’s just, slice the avocado in half, remove seed, crack eggs. Bake in oven 190C for 10 minutes. Ok ok, maybe a little more than that. Hehe

AND because these dishes are so quick, I just use the phone to capture the photograph.

It would be nicer if there’s 1 egg in each half of the avocado so when it bakes, it’s pretty. But these were XL eggs, so I ….. halved the yolk hence the mess. You could use a smaller egg or make a bigger ‘well’ in the avocado.

Baked Eggs in Avocado & Pancetta Chips
 
Serves: 1
Ingredients
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 egg (or 2, up to you)
  • 2 stripes pancetta
  • 4 white mushroom
  • 2 slices of bread
  • ¼ lemon (or lime) wedge
  • salt
  • pepper
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 190 C
  2. Cut the avocado in half, remove the seed. Use a spoon and scoop out some of the flesh (so the egg can fit) but not all of it.
  3. Squeeze in some lemon or lime juice (Lime would be a better choice but I only had lemon, so I used lemon) Sprinkle some salt and pepper.
  4. Place the avocado on a baking tray, crack the eggs into the 'well'. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, quarter the mushrooms. Heat olive oil in a pan and pan fry the mushrooms till it's soft. (about 4-5 minutes) Add some seasoning. Remove onto plate when it's done.
  6. Slice the pancetta (you can use bacon if you want) and pan fry on the same pan till it's crisp. Remove onto a paper towel to absorb some oil out.
  7. Slice bread and put it in the toaster, or oven, or panini press.
  8. Once egg is baked, remove from oven, sprinkle some salt and pepper. Serve with toasted bread, mushrooms and sprinkle over some crispy pancetta.

This makes a reaaaalllyyy yummy brunch if you like runny yolks but don’t wanna take in the buttery and rich hollandaise sauce from the usual eggs benedict. Avocado is an excellent source of healthy fat (Omega-3 fatty acids) and also Vitamin E (good for the skin) I absolutely LOVE avocado. By baking it, it removes the raw green taste which some people don’t like it. So give it a try!
