Frittata in an Avocado

0.0/5 rating (0 votes)

I love avocados but hate when they go bad on the counter! I am sure you have thrown them away and was not happy about it! Well I had 2 on the counter and decided to bake it with a frittata in the hole! 

I used leftover cooked bacon but you can use sausage or any other left over meats or even vegetables from dinner last night.

I actually made an avocado, tomato and red onion salsa on the side but forgot to take a picture. Sorry..  Just dice them up and sprinkle a dash of sea salt and drizzle with EVOO. That's all...  Enjoy

 

Ingredients

  • 1 large avocado
  • 8 pieces of baby spinach
  • 1 tablespoon red bell pepper, diced
  • 4 mushrooms, diced
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1-2 pieces of cooked bacon, crumbled
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon red peper flakes, optional
  • Extra virgin olive oil

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees

    Take your avocado, slice in half, remove pit and use a spoon and remove about 1/8 inch of the avocado then dice and set aside with a squeeze of lime juice (use it to make your salsa with tomato and red onion diced - set aside).

  2. Place avocados in a small pan (if they seem to move around them add foil in between them to let stay still in the pan).  Place 4 pieces of spinach in each half.

  3. Place the red pepper and mushrooms with 1 tablespoon of water in a microwave safe  bowl and set for 15 seconds. Drain water and let cool.

  4. In a mixing bowl whisk eggs, add in cooked bacon, peppers, mushrooms, salt, pepper, basil and red pepper flakes. Divide between the 2 halves and bake for 20 minutes.

  5. Drizzle with EVOO (optional but good) and Enjoy.
