Easy Saturday Brunch

Every once in a while scrolling through instagram, I come upon a picture where the food looks so delicious that I want it.

Oftentimes, immediately.

This happened last week, and I was saddened to find there was no link for a recipe, just pretty food.

After studying the picture a little, I decided to try and recreate it myself, so I handed my son the check card and a grocery list and sent him off to grab a handful of items, while I found the rest in the pantry and refrigerator here.

{Anyone else ask their teens run errands because you don’t want to get out in the cold?}

The picture that captured my attention was of avocados with eggs and this is how I recreated it…

In fact it was quite easy once it was decided what should go into this recipe.

Really easy.

Ingredients I used included fresh avocado, cage free eggs, grated parmesan cheese, salt and pepper, fresh parsley and chives, and nitrate-free bacon, cooked and crumbled.

Preheating the oven to 350º I cut two avocados in half, removed the seeds, and placed into a cast iron pan sprayed with coconut oil.

Next I cracked an egg into the hole of each half, seasoned with a little salt and pepper, and sprinkle grated Parmesan cheese over it. Pop the pan into the oven and cook until the egg is set as you like it; I like a fairly runny yolk so I baked it about 10 minutes or so.

Remove when done, top with the fresh herbs and bacon and serve up immediately.

This made a perfect brunch for Bradley and I (since we slept in) and was really filling, so it didn’t need any sides.

If you follow a low carb, keto, or paleo (leave off the Parmesan) diet, this is perfect for you!  It’s very filling with a good serving of protein and healthy fats.

I hope you have a relaxing and enjoyable weekend!
