Total Time: 25 minutes
Serves: 4

Ingredients:

4 slices Artisan Crafted Series Jalapeno Bacon, cooked crisp and chopped
2 firm but ripe avocados, halved and pitted
4 eggs
1/4 tsp each salt and pepper
1/2 cup shredded Tex-Mex cheese

  3. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until egg whites are set and yolks are still runny or cooked to as desired. Sprinkle with green onion.
