How to make the perfect avocado baked eggs with bacon
The classic recipe includes bacon, but a nice guanciale, speck or Pancetta Piacentina are nice. Let’s not talk about ham.
Let’s start with the bacon: get 3 slices.
Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a pan with the ginger, it will be used to perfume and degrease the bacon. Place the slices of bacon and sauté slowly for 15 minutes. They must caramelize and become crunchy. Be careful not to burn them.
After a few tests, the crispy speck won hands down, its smoked and sweet flavor adds an incredible charm.
Squeeze the lime into a bowl, add salt and pepper and stir.
Cut the avocado in half, remove the core, lightly dig the two parts of avocado with a spoon to make room for the eggs.
Dress with the lemon vinaigrette. This way the avocado will not get blackened and you will add a refreshing touch.
Shell the eggs and put them inside the avocado cavities.
Prepare a baking tray, cover it with parchment paper, put one half of avocado and use two sticks or a spoon to keep it in balance, otherwise goodbye egg!
Repeat the operation with the other half, season the eggs with salt and pepper and cook for 5 minutes, until the egg white has hardened.
Remove from the oven and sprinkle with ginger lacquered bacon petals. Take it in your hands and crumble it finely.
We did the test by cooking the avocado to make it softer, so just to remove the whim, but it was a sensational failure.
When cooking the avocado dried out and turned into a fused thermoplastic blob. And it wasn’t cool at all. Fast cooking it, as little as possible, just to not eat raw the egg white is the best solution.
Which wine to pair with avocado baked eggs with bacon?
We choose a savory, intense and structured wine that can withstand the fatty assault of avocado: Babini’s Albana Monte del Re has the right boldness to fight with this nasty avocado.
If you want to pair a beer, Birra del Borgo’s My Antonia is perfect.
