This recipe for Mexican Grilled Avocado Eggs with Fresh Tomato Salsa is the perfect summer meal!

Guys.  It’s June.  June!  Only 202 more days until Christmas.  Can you believe it?   Seriously though, we’ve already had some nice weather and I’ve been spending a lot of time with my pretty new grill, but I can’t wait for the real hot weather that is soon to come.

It’s also almost time to celebrate Father’s Day!  For Father’s Day this year I am planning to pull out the grill and throw together an awesome & brunch including Mexican Grilled Avocado Eggs with Fresh Tomato Salsa (read on for the recipe!).  They are incredibly good, full of amazing flavour and of course full of amazing nutrition.

The avocado gets scooped out, mixed together with Queso Fresco and fresh lime juice then stuffed back into the shell before an egg is cracked into each one.  Eggs are so versatile but I think it’s easy to forget about them during BBQ but they really add something special to dishes.  There is nothing like a beautiful runny yolk.  I love the richness it provides to a dish!

We often think of steak and hamburgers when it comes to the grill but Eggs are actually a complete protein and incredibly versatile, making them an excellent choice for grilling.    Canada’s Food Guide recommends eating 1 to 3 servings of meat/meat alternatives a day which is surprisingly easy to meet since a Canadian Grade A Egg is equal to 1 serving.  You can definitely fuel your body for a healthy and active lifestyle with fresh, local and high-quality Canadian Eggs as they provide 14 important nutrients, including vitamin A, D, E, folate, iron, zinc and choline!I was actually surprised to see how low in calories eggs are.  Perfect health food!

Mexican Grilled Avocado Eggs with Fresh Tomato Salsa

INGREDIENTS:
For the Avocado Eggs:

2 large avocados
1/2 cup Queso Fresco, Shredded
Juice of 1/2 lime
4 eggs

For the Salsa:

1 Cup Grape tomatoes, quartered
1 Tbsp cilantro, chopped
Juice of 1/2 lime

 Mexican Grilled Avocado Eggs with Fresh Tomato Salsa

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat grill to 350˚F (180˚C).

Make foil ‘boats’ for the avocados to sit in by folding up the sides of four pieces of aluminum foil.

Cut avocados in half lengthwise and remove pits then scoop out the avocado with a spoon, leaving a little around the sides.

Throw the avocado into a blender with the lime juice and blend for a few seconds.

Spoon mixture back into the avocado shells and smooth it out so that the filling is flush with the top of each shell.

With the back of the spoon, create a well in each avocado half that is large enough for an egg to fit into.

Place avocado halves into the foil boats. Crack an egg into a small bowl, then gently transfer into avocado. Be sure not to break the yolk. Repeat with remaining eggs and avocado halves.

Carefully place avocados and eggs onto your grill and cook with the lid down until whites are set, approximately 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, prepare your salsa by combining the tomatoes, cilantro, lime juice and salt.

Serve avocado eggs immediately, topped with the fresh salsa.
