Good morning! It’s monday again – it always goes so quick! I hope you all enjoyed the weekend, I had a fabulous time. Two of my friends visited Zurich and surprised me with their visit. It was great seeing them again – reminded me though, that I really need to find time again to fly over to Hamburg to visit the rest of my lovelies. I would say I’ll just quickly book, but I have so many things coming up in the next weeks and especially a lot on the weekends. Maybe I’ll find a weekend later in February for a spontaneous flight.
Yesterday, it being my favorite lazy day: Sunday, I enjoyed the free-time to make a rather big breakfast again. I am the biggest avocado lover, as some of you might already know. In the past weeks I’ve baked my egg quite often in the half of an avocado. It’s super delicious and I love the avocado warm almost more than cold right now! Together with this protein packed two-ingredient piece, I had a banana, an apple and some almonds. I enjoy breakfasts so much and I absolutely love decorating the food I eat. I’m not even sure how this started, but I can’t cook and just “throw” something onto the plate. It always has to look semi-“pretty” for me to enjoy it. Is it just me or does the food taste almost even better, when placed all pretty? It’s probably me just being weird there!
For all those interested in trying the baked egg in an avocado: all you need is an egg and, avocado! (Big surprise I know haha) Depending on the size of the avocado it’s important scoop a little more of the flesh out – otherwise the eggwhite will not fit. For this rather small avocado I scooped out about 2 teaspoons before adding the raw egg into it. The oven should be pre-heated to 220°C (celsius degrees). Once the oven is hot, place the avocado in it for about 15 minutes. Although the top looks slighty “dry”, the inside was still soft – just perfect. Add some pepper and salt and voila, there you have the perfect add-on to a great breakfast.
Small hint: the avocado easily falls to the side and for you to avoid spilling the raw egg all over, I used a small bowl that can be put into the oven. I placed the avocado into the bowl before adding the egg, to make sure it stays in place. Bon appetit! xo
