Eggs Baked in Avocado

This recipe makes a quick, easy and healthy breakfast or brunch dish.

Serves: 2

  • 1 avocado, seed removed
  • 2 eggs
  • A pinch of salt, a dash of pepper and any additional seasonings you’d like to add.
  • Oil, as needed to grease a baking dish

Preheat the oven to 425°F.

Wash the outside of the avocado, dry it well and slice it in half lengthwise. Remove the seed. Leave the avocado flesh in the shell.

If the avocado has a small seed pit, use a spoon to carefully scoop some of the avocado flesh out to make room for the egg.

Lightly grease a small baking dish. I prefer a small baking dish with sides, just large enough to fit my two avocado halves. That way, the dish helps support the avocado and keep it from tipping over. Place the avocado halves in the greased baking dish.

Crack eggs into each avocado half. Season with salt, pepper, and any other seasonings you’d like. We prefer a Cajun seasoning blend.

Bake uncovered for 15-20 minutes. Bake 15 minutes for a creamier yolk and closer to 20 minutes for a harder yolk.

Serve straight from the shell or scoop out the flesh, the choice is yours. Or, spread the warmed avocado over toast as it’s effortlessly spreadable once baked.

This recipe is easily adaptable to many tastes by adding toppings such as bacon, feta, tomatoes and parsley.
