Preheat oven to 400°. Slice avocado lengthwise in 2 and remove pit. Scoop out approximately 1 Tablespoon avocado from each whole to make room for the eggs. Place avocados in muffin tin. Crack one egg into small bowl, but keep yolk in shell. Place yolk in avocado hole and then use shell to scoop up some egg white and fill to top of hole. Repeat on other half. Place in oven and bake for 15-20 minutes until whites are done and yolk is cooked to your preference. Remove from oven, let cool 3-5 minutes, sprinkle with crumbled bacon pieces,chives and salt & pepper. Enjoy!

Note: Scoop out a bigger whole if you want to place ingredients such as peppers, onions, ham, sun-dried tomatoes, etc under egg. Continue cooking as noted above.
