Bake eggs in avocados

Eggs are good. Avocados are good. Ergo, this Eggocado recipe, which involves swapping the pit for an egg and baking them together, is an obvious choice for breakfast. “It’s a quick way to throw a fresh twist on the monotonous, colorless egg creations you’ve likely been whipping up for years.
