  • 3 strips bacon

  1. Heat oven to 450 F.

  5. Place avocados on a baking sheet, cut side up.
  6. Crack one egg into each side. Season with salt and pepper.
  7. Bake for 10-15 minutes or to desired doneness of egg yolk.
  8. Remove from oven.
  9. Sprinkle cheese, bacon and a pinch of cilantro on top. Squeeze 1 lime wedge on each half to serve.
