The recipe for baked avocado with egg, bacon and spring onion is an easy and delicious preparation, to be made in a few minutes; very good for a fast dinner, perfect for when you have little time and few ideas. In this preparation, avocado is simply seasoned with extra virgin olive oil, salt, spring onion, bacon and an egg, and it must be cooked for a few minutes only at the end.

Baked avocado can be served as a second dish, but also as a single dish if accompanied, as in this case, by toasted croutons.
How to prepare baked avocado with eggs and bacon
Wash and dry the avocados. Then, with a sharp knife, cut them one at a time lengthwise, passing with the blade around the core; then swirl the two parts obtained (1) thus detaching one from the seed.
Insert a spoon to the side of the core, then slide it to lift the seed (2). Finally sprinkle the surface of the fruit with lime juice to prevent it from turning black.
Place the avocado halves face up on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Season them with a drizzle of oil, a sprinkle of salt and a pepper. Place the slices of toasted bread (3) next to the fruit. Bake in a preheated static oven at 200 degrees C for 10 minutes.
Remove from the oven, open the eggs one at a time and slide them in the place of the core, into the hollow of the avocados. Then cover with diced bacon, finely sliced spring onion and bake for another 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and serve with the toasted bread cut into sticks (4).
Avocado is a highly appreciated subtropical fruit, rich in beneficial properties and extremely versatile in cuisine. When you buy it, choose a fruit that is ripe but not too much; it must not be excessively hard to the touch, nor too yielding to the pressure of the fingers. If you find only firm flesh, buy it and keep it for a few days at room temperature until you get the desired level of ripeness.
You can change the recipe as you prefer; instead of diced bacon you can put raw ham, cooked ham or speck. In addition, you can add your favorite aromatic herbs to the recipe; chives, thyme, rosemary but also basil will be fine.
We advise you to eat baked avocado immediately after preparing it, in order to enjoy all the flavors of the recipe.
