Avocado Egg Bake

Well, folks, it’s the new year – time to make up for all the indulgences of the holidays. And for a lot of us, that means going on a diet to lose that holiday weight.

Low-carb diets are the most popular type, but they have one big problem: they can be a whole lot of no fun. Lunch and dinner aren’t too bad, because you can always have a salad and a piece of grilled meat or fish. But breakfast is a killer. Cereal, toast, muffins – they’re all off limits. What are you supposed to do, just eat a plain boiled egg every morning?Avocado Egg Bake - Baked avocadoes on a wooden serving dish - Breakfast Avocados

Have no fear – Family Fresh Meals is here to save the day! My new Avocado Egg Bake bites are a low-carb breakfast that’s definitely not boring. A tender, green avocado, halved and pitted…topped with sliced ham, egg, salt, and pepper…then baked until the egg is set. Between the salty, chewy ham, the firm egg, and the soft, slippery avocado, this gives you a great contrast of textures and flavors.

This breakfast has less than 2 grams of carbs, but it’s packed with protein, heart-healthy fats – and most of all, flavor. Put a plateful of these in front of you, and you definitely won’t miss that boring old bowl of cereal.
