Bacon Wrapped Avocado Egg Nests (paleo, scd)

If you ever want to bring something easy yet impressive to a pock luck or a brunch may I suggest these little Paleo nests. The potential for stuffings are unlimited here. Try adding your favorite chopped veggies in with the egg or pico de gallo. Or try wrapping in prosciutto instead of bacon, or use turkey bacon.

2 ripe avocados
2 medium eggs
1/2 pound bacon*
salt and pepper, to taste

Cut avocados in half. Remove pit. Peel.
Crack open eggs and split into two portions.
Put half of one egg into the middle of half of one avocado.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Carefully wrap each avocado half with a strip of bacon.
Place sunny side up in a baking dish.
Bake at 350 degrees for twenty minutes.
Broil for five minutes, flip over and broil for another five minutes (or until bacon is crispy).


*note: for those on scd: try finding low-sodium versions of your favorite bacon brand to get some that is cured sugar-free.

  1. Yum! It's like a seriously shmancy version of a deviled egg.
