Bacon & Eggs Baked Avocado.

Because believe it or not, I don't eat cake for breakfast.

First things first. You have to love the texture of baked avocado. It changes slightly while baking, so this is really something that you need to figure out for yourself. I'm just warning you.

These are perfect for low carb diets, Keto diets,  the South Beach diet or those of us that love eating avocados, eggs and bacon. Which would be me, of course. With a few family members that eat low carb, I've been working on a few recipes over the year that fit into their needs. This would be one of them.

Might even be Paleo friendly, who knows. You can leave me comments below letting me know if it is.

Second, embrace diced pancetta. It's just a fancy word for Italian bacon, really, but it is perfect for this dish. You need thick chunks of salty goodness that won't cook all the way through. Pancetta is the BOMB, you guys.

Look at those thick, fatty streaks in that pancetta. The wonderful thing is ( as I am sure you are looking at that and thinking NOT HEALTHY KARLYNN) is that it takes so little to make these avocados delicious. A tablespoon, perhaps, two, is all you need. Enjoy it without guilt. Pancetta is meatier than bacon as well, so there's more protein bang for your buck.

Just looking at this makes me seriously happy. THREE of my very favourite foods, all in one dish. Eggs baked avocado…with pancetta on top. I love that avocados are these seriously adorable little food holders of happy. It has me thinking about what else I can bake into them.

Pretty, pretty avocado.
