Baked Avocado Eggs and Hollandaise Recipe

Try Baked Avocado Egg with Hollandaise Hearts For Valentine’s Day Photo of California style Avocado baked with egg and Hollandaise sauce by Lisa Keating of EncinoMom.

Here’s a simple recipe for an elegant breakfast or brunch inspired by a photo I saw recently on Pinterest. The original photo looked so amazing, I had to try it for myself. I cooked the yolk thoroughly, which you may or may not prefer. The consistency of the yolk and the baked avocado were surprisingly similar, extremely rich and smooth. I added Hollandaise sauce. I had some left over from last weekend’s asparagus and it seemed a shame to toss it so I thought I would see if it would freeze.
I love these Hollandaise hearts, so cute and such a fancy flourish in a flash. I’m sure it’s some sort of cooking faux pas, but it’s working for me.

So here you go: Cut a beautiful California avocado in half. Mine was just ripe and still firm. Remove the pit (you can start your own tree in a sunny window as long as the fruit hasn’t been previously refrigerated). Crack a farm fresh egg into the hollow of each avocado half. The white will most likely overfill the avocado. Next time, I will reserve most of the white to make meringues.

Frozen Hollandaise hearts top raw egg in avocado halves.

Top with Hollandaise hearts a little salt and pepper to taste and bake in a 350陋 oven for 30 minutes. These would be amazing topped with crumpled bacon, too. I squeezed on a little lemon and served them with crusty French bread and grilled tomatoes. Enjoy!

    • Let me know how it turns out! This recipe is very mild, if you like a little spice, top with salsa and skip the Hollandaise – very, California style. 馃槈
