Serving size varies; the following recipe serves 2.

Carefully crack two small eggs in a medium bowl, not puncturing the yolks. Cut an avocado in half and remove the seed from the center. If the avocado’s pit hole is not big enough for one egg, scoop a small amount out until the size matches the egg. Place the avocado halves on a baking sheet and scoop the yolks out of the bowl into each avocado hole. Fill the remainder of the hole with leftover egg whites from the cracked eggs. Add pepper and salt on top of each egg for taste. Place in the oven at 425 degrees for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and add crumbled bacon on top of each avocado half.

This recipe will surely be one of your office’s favorites!
