  1. Preheat the oven to 350°.
  2. With a spoon, scoop out enough avocado from the center of each half to fit an egg. Dice the scooped out avocado, transfer to a bowl, and set aside.
  3. In an 8 x 8-inch glass baking pan, arrange each avocado half up against the sides of the pan, cut sides up. Crack one egg into each avocado shell.
  4. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the egg is set to the desired doneness. Top each with the cherry tomatoes, reserved avocado, bacon, and scallions. Sprinkle with Everything Bagel seasoning. Garnish with cilantro. Serve immediately.
