How to make baked eggs in avocados:

 

cutting avocados, scooping out avocados
 
Preheat your oven to 425° F.    Cut each of the avocados in half, leaving the peel intact and remove the pits.  Then with a small ice cream scooper, scoop out some of the avocado to make the cup a little bit bigger than your eggs.

Place each avocado half in a baking dish.  And you could use a pyrex pie dish to keep the avocados stable by supporting each other.  This should keep the avocados stable while cooking.   Crack an egg into each scooped out avocado half, being careful not to break the yolk.  Season with salt and black pepper.   Place in oven and bake for 14-16 minutes until the whites of the eggs are done.
