Baked Eggs in Avocado: Submitted by Chelsea Davis

Ingredients

  • Eggs
  • Avocados
  • Pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 425° F.
  2. Slice the avocados in half and take out the pit. Scoop out about two tablespoons of flesh from the center of the avocado, just enough so the egg will fit snugly in the center.
  3. Place the avocados in a small baking dish. Do your best to make sure they fit tightly.
  4. Crack an egg into each avocado half. Try your best to crack the yolk in first and then let the egg whites spill in to fill up the rest of the shell.
  5. Place in the oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes. Cooking time will depend on the size of your eggs and avocados. Just make sure the egg whites have enough time to set.
  6. Remove from oven, then season with pepper and garnish of your choice.

Baked Chicken: Submitted by Erica Luebbers Hasselback

Ingredients

  • 3 cups fresh spinach
  • ½ cup crumbled goat cheese (or feta)
  • ½ tsp. crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
  • 4 chicken breasts, boneless and skinless (approx. 1.5 lbs.)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tsp. paprika
  • ⅓ cup shredded Mozzarella or cheddar cheese

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Prepare a baking sheet by lining with foil and set aside.
  2. In a large skillet, add a splash of olive oil. Cook spinach over medium until slightly wilted (approx. 3-5 min). Add crumbled goat cheese and continue to cook until cheese is melted (about 1 min).
  3. Stir in red pepper flakes (if using) and set aside.
  4. Place chicken breasts on prepared baking sheet. Using a sharp knife, cut slits across the chicken breast about ¾ of the way through (be careful not to cut all the way through) about ½ – 3/4 inch apart (approx. 6-8 slits per chicken breast).
  5. Stuff each slit with spinach and goat cheese mixture.
  6. Generously salt and pepper top of chicken breast and season with paprika.
  7. Sprinkle ¼ of the mozzarella cheese on each chicken breast.
  8. Place chicken breasts in the oven and bake for 20-25 min. If desired, switch oven from bake to broil for the last 10 min. of cooking (for more bubbly and browned cheese)
