Pinterest Is To Blame For This.

I made this a couple of weeks ago, but forgot to mention it on Ye Olde Blogge, so here it is.

My friend Meredith found a recipe on Pinterest that involves both avocado and eggs, so I was totally game to try it out. And it's so super easy! I wasn't a huge fan of the textures, but someone else might think it's totally awesometown.

Here's what the picture looked like on Pinterest:

And here's what they looked like when I made them (plus some lemon bread):

Not quite as pretty, right?

Here's what you do, via the Apron Strings Blog:

Heat a non-stick skillet to medium low heat. Lightly spray with oil. Slice an avocado with the skin ON lengthwise, forming one thick slice in the middle. (You will have some leftover avocado pieces – so, Hey! Make some bonus guacamole if you want! Guacamole for Breakfast? Why NOT? It’s the Holidays!) Remove the seed and use a small cookie cutter {Editors note: or, you know, a spoon.} to make a hole in the center of your thick slice. Place the avocado slice in the pan. Crack a medium sized egg into the center of the hole. Cover and cook for a minute or two, until the egg is as you like it. Season with salt and pepper and serve.

I feel like I didn't cut enough of the avocado out, so my eggs spilled over everywhere. (Is that an eggalanche?) So watch out for that.


  1. I'm addicted to that website and my food never turns out like the picture either. As long as it tastes good, right?

  2. I'm addicted, too. I posted a photo of my dinner last night -- recipe courtesy of Pinterest. This post reminds me of another Pinterest board where it shows two sets of Cookie Monster cupcakes. One that looks professionally done, and another of what it looks like when real people do them. Cracks me up. My recipes usually taste good, but don't have the polished look. ;)

  3. I loved the nutella/banana thing I made the other night, but I have no interest in this recipe!

    Just thought you should know! ;)

  4. That looks soooo good, though that much avocado wouldn't sit well on my tummy, but I could eat a little.

  5. So addicted to Pinterest!!! LOVE IT! I thought of that pic Victoria mentioned, too. "NAILED IT!". Who cares as long as it takes good?!?
