Avocado and Bacon Egg Bites

Recipe makes 4 servings


3.5 oz (100g) bacon, cooked
8 large eggs
½ avocado, sliced
5 oz (140g) cheddar, sliced
½ cup lettuce, chopped
1 tsp sesame seeds
Salt and pepper to taste


Place your eggs in a single layer in a saucepan or pot. Cover the eggs with cold water. Make sure the water level is about 1 inch (2.5 cm) above the eggs. Place the pot on the stove over high heat and bring the water to a rolling boil. Cook the eggs for 8 minutes.

When done, transfer the eggs to a bowl of ice water using a slotted spoon. Let them sit in the ice water for a few minutes. After cooling, peel the eggs. Slice each egg in half, lengthwise and set aside.

Place the bacon in a preheated skillet over medium heat, ensuring the slices aren’t overlapping. Let it cook for 5-7 minutes or until desired done-ness. Drain on paper towels.

Peel and slice the avocado. Wash and chop the lettuce.

Make the egg bites with lettuce, bacon, cheese, and sliced avocado. Top with the remaining egg half.

Sprinkle with some salt, pepper, and sesame seeds. Serve immediately.
