Baked Cheesy Avocado With Chimmichurri Tomatoes And A Spicy Egg

image

I defy anyone not to like avocado cooked this way!

This is one of my favourite brunch or supper dishes. I happily sit down to have this while the boys are having a gluten laden meal!

I usually make up a big batch of chimichurri dressing and have it in the fridge for a couple of days, great over barbecued chicken and steak! I’ve popped my chimichurri recipe below if you want to give it a go.

Serves 2.

 Ingredients

4 medium tomatoes, deseeded and diced

2 tablespoons chimichurri dressing

2 small avocados, sliced

50g Parmesan, finely grated

salt and pepper

a little oil or ghee

a pinch of chilli flakes

3 eggs, 1 beaten

Method

Preheat the oven to 210 degrees centigrade. Line a baking sheet with baking parchment.

Take the avocado slices, dip them in the beaten egg and then into the Parmesan.

Lay on the baking sheet and once they are all coated, pop them into the oven for 10 minutes until the cheese is crispy.

While the avocado bakes, mix the chimichurri dressing and tomatoes, spoon onto your serving plate.

Heat the oil or ghee in a frying pan and once hot, add the chilli and cook for 30 seconds.

Crack the eggs into the pan and fry until the white is set and the yolk is still runny.

Lay the baked avocado over the tomatoes and top with the eggs.

Spaceman Eggs

This isn’t really a recipe!

When the boys have gone through fussy stages with eggs, these eggs have always remained popular.

Ingredients

1 egg

1 slice of bread

Method

Preheat a non stick frying pan and the grill.

Using a gingerbread man or lady cutter, cut out the centre of the bread, making sure the crusts are still intact.

Put the cut bread and figure into the frying pan.

Crack an egg gently and pour the egg white into the hole in the bread, starting at the bottom.

Pour the yolk into the head area to create the helmet.

Fry until the white is beginning to become opaque, then, pop under the grill just long enough for the white to solidify but the yolk to remain runny.

Use  the toast man to dip into the spaceman’s helmet!
