Baking an egg in an avocado for a delicious breakfast treat sounds fantastic. And I’m sure it would have been had I used the proper cooking method that mysteriously replaced the one that I had clipped a week ago on Lifehacker.
I just don’t think that 350ºF cuts it for cooking an egg in time without spoiling the avocado. So I used another method I found after my first failed attempt. I instead cooked it in a covered pan over medium heat. In the end it took about ten minutes and I had one smelly, smokey kitchen by the end of it all.
I suppose it would have helped if I had a much larger avocado or smaller egg to make for a better living situation for both the parties, but I just used what I had lying around.
In any case it still tasted ok, although the burnt avocado smoke definitely made its way into the flesh, so that was a little disheartening.
This is a classic case of why internet recipes usually take a few tries before they turn out right.
