Food Glamour Oops {Baked Egg In Avocado}

For the last several months on pinterest, blogs and just about everywhere I have heard about about baking an egg in avocado. Apparently it the best thing next to sliced bread. So of course I had to try that -ish out. So I researched all the recipes. It was simple enough:

Heat over to 400 degrees. Cut avocado in half (remove pit)  and put on baking sheet. Crack egg in hole. Put season. Bake for 30ish minutes.

Okay, that couldn't be too hard right? It was all fine and dandy until it was time to put the egg in the hole (...that's what she said), because within two seconds the first egg slid right out off. I am not one to quit right away so I did it again. And the result:

Yup, let's file this under good in theory, but a straight up Glamour Oops in the food department. I was hesitant anyways. I am not too sure about warm avocado (justification makes failure easier, right?)

Warm avocado is really good. Have you have sliced some up and put it in a Mexican style soup? delicious!

I don't know if it's just me but this doesn't sound good. At. All. I mean, I love avocado but this is just ruining it haha.

I didn't even consider that the pit hole wouldn't be big enough for an egg, it's definitely not though!
