Most parents know the first few weeks of school season and new daily routines can be hectic, and this year is especially different! From stocking up on school supplies to figuring out the school’s updated protocol, there are few unused minutes in the day.
One thing that’s particularly easy to forget is a well-balanced, protein-packed breakfast. When students have a balanced breakfast in the morning, they are more likely to pay attention and perform better on standardized tests.
Start the school year off right by giving your kids a breakfast they’ll love that also provides the protein they need to kick-start their day. Recipes like Baked Eggs in Avocado can be ready in minutes and provide fuel long past the first-morning school bell.
Baked Eggs in Avocado
Cook time: 10 minutes
Nonstick cooking spray
3 large avocados
4 strips thick-cut bacon, diced and cooked until crispy
1 cup blue cheese
1/4 cup fresh cilantro
Heat oven to 450 F. Spray baking sheet or glass baking pan with cooking spray. Cut avocados in half. Scoop out 1-2 tablespoons of avocado to create well for eggs. Place avocados flesh-side up on prepared baking sheet or glass pan.
Gently crack one egg in each avocado well, making sure to keep the yolk intact. Bake 10 minutes, or until eggs reach the desired temperature. Remove.
Top with bacon pieces, blue cheese, and cilantro.
