If your first response to a baked avocado dish is "gross," I beg you to consider giving this a try. Admittedly, it was my first reaction to the idea when a co-worker made this for me, but I was absolutely converted when I had my first bite.

The texture of the avocado is not really altered by a quick 10 minutes in the oven. And the runny yolk surrounded by creamy, tender avocado is a true game changer. Garnish with lime, cilantro, scallions, and keep plenty of tortillas on hand to maneuver and squish the egg and avocado out of the avocado skin. You have a new take on brunch that I promise will be a crowd pleaser. As an added bonus, any leftovers are great on top of a tart salad for a quick lunch the next day.
