Avocado Baked Eggs

I don’t know about you but I absolutely have to eat breakfast in the morning. It’s a must! Or else my stomach will not stop growling… But who has time to make breakfast? I definitely don’t have time but I have to eat! So I make super quick breakfasts like these, which fills me up and they’re delicious! Just season them, pop them in the oven and go brush while it is baking in the oven.

Avocado Baked Eggs

Serves: 1-2            Total time: 20 minutes


  • 1 avocado
  • 2 eggs
  • salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper to taste
  • bacon bits (optional)
  • chopped green onions (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 400 ΒΊF.
  2. Cut avocado in half, remove pit, and use a spoon to scoop out some avocado pulp from the centre so the egg fits.
  3. Crack the eggs and add them to each avocado slice (it is best to crack the eggs over a small bowl and allow some of the egg whites to run in to the bowl since the entire egg will not fit in the avocado slice).
  4. Season each avocado slice with salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper and bake for 15 minutes (or 20 minutes for fully cooked egg).
  5. Top with some chopped green onions and bacon bits.


    1. Good question. You could, but I don’t recommend it cause the microwave will cook the eggs unevenly and may cause the eggs to “explode”.

  1. Need icon for printable recipe! Waste of ink and paper to have to print several pages for a simple recipe.

    1. Email it to yourself, open on your phone and save to folder. If you save to DropBox or the Cloud, you will never loose it. πŸ™‚ Just a helpful hint.

      1. Brilliant idea! I will also try to figure out how to add the print icon so it’s easier for everyone to print the recipe. But your idea is great since we save paper and it’s always on you! πŸ™‚ thanks!

    1. That’s brilliant! So you wouldn’t cook the avocado? I will definitely try this method since I do prefer the taste of raw avocado instead of cooked. Thanks πŸ™‚

  2. I think 1 scrambled egg, with onions, pepper, cheese, garlic or many other things would be easier and less wasteful.

    1. Yes, 1 scrambled egg works fine too! It just doesn’t look as nice! πŸ˜‚ Also, I keep the left over egg whites in the fridge to use for something else later for lunch or dinner. So not wasteful at all! πŸ™‚

  3. Another thought! Save the avocado pulp that is removed, put it a cup and pour a raw scrambled egg over it, and bake!

    1. I like the way you think! Just like me, I ensure that no food is ever wasted when I cook. I always save extra food for something else by improvising! πŸ™‚

  4. Recipe works fine using the microwave oven instead of the conventional oven. Much easier, faster, and greener.

    1. Totally agree! Microwave oven works fine too, although I haven’t tried it with the microwave. I’ve microwaved eggs before and I didn’t like the way it turned out since it cooks the eggs unevenly and causes the eggs to “explode”. Thanks for stopping by my blog πŸ™‚

  5. Recipe works fine in the microwave, too. Much easier, faster, and greener. I have done this for several days before seeing the recipe here.

    1. Thank you for the suggestion, Gregg! How do you find the eggs after you microwave them though? I remember it didn’t taste as good when I’ve tried microwaving eggs in the past. Thanks for stopping by. πŸ™‚

    1. Hi Richard, I’ve never tried this recipe in the microwave but I’m assuming 5 minutes? Thanks for stopping by my food blog πŸ™‚

  6. Looks great! Haven’t tried it but I would definitely do it your way if I was serving multiple people – Nice presentation for a brunch – Would not use conventional oven for 1 person – toaster oven maybe πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks so much, Lori! It is definitely a great party brunch idea! You’re right, I would use a toaster oven too, for 1 person but I haven’t bought one yet, since I’ve moved out. πŸ˜‚

    1. Very good question! If you leave it in the oven for 10 minutes it would be over easy, 15 minutes would be medium and 20 minutes would be hard. Thanks for stopping by. πŸ™‚

    1. I’m not sure as I’ve never tried this recipe in the microwave. I only use the microwave to heat up my lunches, never to cook anything. If you do try it in the microwave, let me know how it goes! Thanks!

  7. So how do you eat this amazing creation? Do you scoop it out of the shell with a spoon because you don’t eat the shell part right?

  8. Just a thought about exploding eggs in the microwave…, I pierce the yolk and sprinkle a little water on the egg when I poach. Maybe that would work here.
