This healthy, vegetarian, protein-packed breakfast doesn't even need a dish—sort of. Avocado serves as the container for this tasty (and easy) three-ingredient recipe, which bakes in just 15 minutes.


  • ½ avocado

  • 1 egg

  • 1 teaspoon grated Parmesan cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Crack an egg into the hollow of the avocado, and then season with salt and pepper.

  2. Bake until the white of the egg is set, about 15 minutes. Garnish with Parmesan.
