Avocado Baked Eggs


This avocado egg bake is simple and fun to make. I had these clever breakfast treats at a brunch gathering. The recipe is easy to make for two people and can be doubled or tripled for a crowd. I use a muffin tin to hold each avocado half when making multiple servings.

  • 1 avocado, halved and pitted

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • ¼ cup crumbled cooked bacon

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).

  2. Place each avocado half in a ramekin. Crack 1 egg into each avocado half; season with cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper. Place the ramekins on a baking sheet.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven until egg is cooked through, about 15 minutes. Sprinkle each avocado with crumbled bacon and chives.

Cook's Note:

You may have to carve out a little bit of the avocado meat so the egg can completely fit.
