Baked Eggs in Avocados

Who would have thought? You can bake eggs — full of high-quality protein, vitamins and minerals — right in heart- healthy avocado halves to start your day off right.

• 3 avocados, halved and pitted
• 6 large eggs
• Kosher salt and black pepper, to taste
• Olive oil or olive oil spray
• 2 tablespoons chopped chives (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Lightly oil a baking sheet.

2. Using a spoon, scoop out about two tablespoons of avocado flesh, or more as needed, creating a small well in the center of each avocado.

3. Gently crack 1 egg and slide it into the well, keeping the yolk intact. Repeat with remaining eggs. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

4. Place into oven and bake until egg whites have set but yolks are still runny, 15 to 18 minutes.
