Avocado Egg Basket Bowl

Avocados are my favorite and I’ll eat them morning, noon, or night. This is one of my favorite ways to eat avocados – it’s warm, creamy, filling, and packed with good for you stuffs.

I mean, there’s all this talk about how great salted caramel sauce is (and it is), but can we take a step back and bring back the OG in non-chocolate ice cream toppings? That’s right: I’m on a one-woman mission to bring butterscotch back. The best part about butterscotch sauce is the EASE of making it. This is one of those things where, as
