BAKED EGGS WITH AVOCADO AND TOMATO

BAKED EGGS WITH AVOCADO AND TOMATO

Ingredients:
1 can tomatoes 
1 ripe avocado, sliced lengthwise into 10 slices
Salt and fresh-ground black pepper, to taste
4 eggs 

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 200C. Break eggs into individual ramekins and let the eggs come to room temperature while you proceed with the recipe.  (This might seem a bit fussy, but if you start with cold eggs the yolks will get too done by the time the whites are cooked.)

 

Spray a medium-sized ovenproof frying pan with non-stick spray or brush with oil, add the tomatoes, and start to simmer over medium heat. 

 

While the tomatoes simmer, peel the avocado, cut in half, and then cut each half into 5 thin slices. When all the liquid has evaporated from the tomatoes (about 4-5 minutes), turn the heat to low and arrange the avocado slices like spokes of a wheel in the pan.  Gently put each egg between two avocado slices, spacing them evenly apart.  Season to taste with salt and fresh-ground black pepper.

 

Put the skillet into the pre-heated oven and bake until whites are completely set and the yolks are done to your liking, about 10-12 minutes for runny yolks.
