When I saw this recipe for eggs baked in avocado halves and dressed with a light miso butter, I knew I wasn't going to be wasting any time making it. I've been craving the smooth texture and rich nutty and buttery taste of avocados lately, and the recipe is so extraordinarily simple and quick — 3 or 4 minutes preparation and 10 to 20 minutes baking time — that it makes a perfect lunch or breakfast idea when you haven't anything planned ahead.
The wonderful health benefits of avocados are certainly inviting features of this dish, but the real attractions are the simple and elegant flavors. The baked avocado and egg is delicious on its own sprinkled with a little salt and pepper, but the sweet and salty miso butter that can be whipped up while the dish is baking makes a great companion for the mild base. Try a salsa or chili sauce as well, and add this terrific idea to your list of regular light meals.
