Ingredients

  • 1 sheet puff pastry (thawed if frozen)
  • 2 avocados
  • 1/2 lemon or lime, juiced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika (see notes)
  • 4 eggs

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper for puff pastry. Fold up edges of pastry about 1/2 inch around all sides to make a barrier for the eggs.
  • Bake puff pastry for about 10 minutes or until lightly browned.
  • (Meanwhile) In a small bowl, mash avocados with the lemon juice and salt. (Option to mix the paprika in now, or sprinkle on top after.)
  • Press down center of puff pastry if it has puffed up after baking.
  • Spread avocado mixture evenly over puff pastry.
  • Crack open each egg and carefully place on top of pastry. (It helps to mark a shallow hole with the back of a spoon first for the eggs to stay in place.)
  • Sprinkle paprika over top of pastry now (if you didn't mix into the avocado mixture earlier).
  • Bake again for 10-12 minutes or until egg whites are solid and cooked.

Notes

Can use other spices instead of paprika for flavor preferences. Cumin is a good option, or if you like it spicy, use 1/4 teaspoon red pepper.
