Spicy Baked Eggs In Avocado

Beautiful with cayenne kick…

This is one breakfast that’s both fast to prep and beautiful in presentation. Oh, and did we mention spicy? That’s the piece de la resistance for us. Sprinkled with both black pepper and cayenne pepper powder, there’s a kick to these baked eggs in avocado. If you want a little more heat, try sprinkling on some freshly sliced red chilies. It’ll add heat, plus the red pairs well with avocado green and the whites and yellows of the egg.
