Lean15 Series: Eggs Baked in Avocado

- This recipe is based on the Lean in 15 cookbook by Joe Wicks -

Serves: 2 Prep Time: 5 mins | Cook Time: 8 mins


- 8 rashes of smoked back bacon (£1.50)
- 2 ripe avocados (£1.89)
- 4 eggs (95p)
- 2 red chilli, finely sliced

Total: £4.34


1. Preheat your grill to maxim, then lay the bacon on the grill pan or a baking tray and slide underneath. Grill for 3 minutes on each side for crispy bacon.

2. Meanwhile, cut your avocado in half, remove the stone and scoop out a generous tablespoon of flesh from each half to create a hole big enough for the egg. No need to waste the leftover avocado - eat it on the spot!

3. Crack an egg into each avocado half, pierce each egg while in a couple of places, season with a little salt and pepper and place on a microwavable plate. Cook the eggs in 30-second hurts for 2 minutes - this should ensure firm whites, but runny yolks. Leave to stand for 1 minute.

4. Serve up the baked eggs and avocado with the bacon and a scattering of chilli.
