Baked Egg Avocado Boats

Baked Egg Avocado Boats
2 ripe avocados, sliced in half and remove pit
crushed red pepper flakes
4 eggs
kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
3 slices bacon, cooked until crispy
Finely chopped chives or green onions, for garnish
Avocado oil
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Scoop out about two tablespoons of flesh from the center of each avocado, ensuring that your egg will fit snugly in the center.
Place avocados snugly in a baking dish. You want to make sure the avocados don't fall so the eggs can stay in tact while baking. Sprinkle some crushed red pepper flakes into each avocado half. Crack eggs in a bowl. Using a spoon, transfer the yolks to each avocado half, then carefully spoon in as much egg white as you can fit in the avocado without spilling over.
Season with salt and pepper and bake until the egg whites are set and yolks are no longer runny, for about 18 to 20 minutes. (Cover with foil if avocados are beginning to brown.)
Remove from oven and garnish with crispy bacon bits, chives, more crushed red pepper flakes if desired and lightly drizzle with some avocado oil. Enjoy immediately!
