Baked Avocado Eggs With Toppings

A colleague kept talking about this amazing breakfast she does with avocados and eggs, and I kept thinking to myself, what’s the big deal? She then explained that she cracks the egg into the hole of the avocado and bakes the two together with various toppings. Now I was intrigued.

After some experimenting with different toppings and flavor combinations, we came up with our version of Baked Avocado Eggs With Toppings. The best part of this recipe is that what we have prepared below is really a guide. You can use whatever toppings you prefer. Have fun and come up with your own ingredient pairings. You can’t go wrong!

Making Avocado Eggs

The key to this recipe is finding good avocados and making sure to create enough space in the center of the avocado to crack an egg, and not have it overflow. To start, use a 4" Paring Knife to cut around the avocado.

Cut around the avocado with a 4 Inch Paring Knife.

Twist the avocado in half and carefully remove the seed. Using a spoon, scoop out approximately a tablespoon of the avocado from each half (to create space for the egg).

Use a spoon to scoop out the avocado.

Place the avocados skin side down onto a baking sheet. If the avocados want to roll, you can also place them in a large muffin pan, which will ensure that they won’t roll. Crack an egg in the center of each avocado half and season with salt and pepper.

Now for the fun toppings. We left one avocado with just the salt and pepper, but for the others, we sprinkled one with goat cheese, another with chopped cherry tomatoes and the final with bacon.

Top the avocado with whatever you'd like.

While the baked avocado eggs are cooking, prepare the other topping ingredients.

Bake until the egg is cooked and then remove from the oven. Sprinkle some parsley over the bacon, basil over the cherry tomato and chives over the goat cheese and serve.

This must be one of the easiest and tastiest breakfast meals I’ve prepared in a long time. Baked Avocado Eggs With Toppings combines all the flavors you need for a filling breakfast that can be different every time. Everyone enjoyed their own personalized avocado egg and, in the end, we had no leftovers. Now that’s the perfect recipe.
