Recipe - Baked Egg in an Avocado

A simple but not so quick breakfast that's healthy and tasty. The flesh of the avocado acts as an insulator so it takes a while for the egg to start to cook.

Baked egg in an avocado

2 Eggs
Salt and Pepper

Preheat oven to 375F

Half and remove the pit of an avocado.

Scoop out enough flesh so that you can crack an egg and place it in the hollow. Let me stress, take out more flesh than you think or you'll wind up spilling the egg like I did twice.

Eat the scooped out flesh from the avocado (It takes a little while to bake)

Season the cavity with salt and pepper.

Crack an egg into the cavity and season the egg.

Place in oven either directly on the rack (It works well as the rack supports the round shape) or on an oven safe dish.

Bake for 20-25 minutes until cooked to your preference.

  1. Oh yum! Definitely going to give this a try.

  2. The first recipe I found for this said to bake it at 180 degrees. After an hour I gave up. Very ticked that I wasted the food and my time. I was hungry! I may try it again but as you say...it's not quick. It can also be messy.

    1. You may have found a European recipe. 180c in a European recipe is 350f in an American recipe. Not an exact c - f conversion, but close enough for baking.
