I realize there is undoubtedly a better title for a blog post, but that is the only thing that comes to mind after today’s first.
I was looking for a new recipe to try and I ran across this one. It was tauted as “paleo-powered breakfast”….a baked egg in an avocado. I like avocados and I can deal with eggs in limited doses…..sounded like it had potential.
I cut the avocado in halves and removed the seed. I propped up the halves so they wouldn’t topple over in the pan and then I carefully cracked two\ eggs and placed in each of the hulled avocado centers. I placed them in a 425 degree oven for 15-20 minutes. Not quite sure exactly how long they were in there. I just kept eyeballing them to make sure the egg was set.
The recipe called for chives to be cut and sprinkled, but I am not a fan of chives at all. So I switched them for hot sauce. Hot sauce seemed like a reasonable substitute for herbs. I mean, hot sauce is good on virtually anything so why not?!
But it wasn’t good…..and I don’t think the hot sauce should burden the blame. This was just all around disastrous. I don’t think avocados have a strong enough flavor to partner well with eggs. And the eggs ended up with a hardened top to them….a crust, if you will. Ewww. The texture was all wrong.
It may be a paleo-powered breakfast, but it’s not a very enticing advertisement for the paleo diet. Paleo poo is more accurate. Yuck.
