  • Avocados – Avocados are high in good fats, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. They are not only delicious, but they are a great addition to a well-balanced diet. The larger the avocados, the better they are!

How To Make These Baked Eggs In Avocado

There are just a few steps that you need to follow to make these delicious baked eggs. Here is how you do it:

  1. Prepare the avocados. Start by cutting the avocados with a sharp knife, carefully remove the seed and some flesh from the hole of the avocado to make a cavity for the eggs.
  2. Place the avocados on a baking sheet –Next, place the avocados in a pan with the opening facing up. Make sure that they are stable and tight in the pan, so they don’t slide around.
  3. Crack the eggs –  Crack the eggs carefully into the avocado holes and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Bake – Place the avocado in the oven and bake them for about 15 minutes until the whites look set and the yolks are still runny.

Tips For Making The Best Baked Eggs In Avocado

  1. If you want to add a little extra flavor, just sprinkle some garlic powder or chili powder over the eggs.
  2. When making the hole in the avocado for the egg, I recommend making the gap wider, not deeper. That will reduce your baking time. If the hole is deeper, the baking time will be longer.

How To Choose Avocados 

For this recipe, you will need to buy large ripe avocados. Large avocados are better for this recipe because there is enough space to crack an egg into the middle of them.

When preparing the avocados for this dish, gently remove the pit and scoop out a little amount of the avocado flesh with a spoon to create a bigger hole. That space will be required for the egg.

How To Store Baked Avocado

Allow these Baked Eggs In Avocado to cool fully before storing them in a meal prep container. Squeeze lemon juice over the avocados and keep it in an airtight jar in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

Can I Freeze These Baked Eggs in Avocado

While raw avocados can be frozen without problems, these baked avocados are better consumed immediately. They may be refrigerated for a couple of days and then reheated, but I don’t recommend freezing them.

Toppings Ideas

I like to eat these baked avocados with a little salt and pepper and some bacon over them. Also, a dollop of sour cream tastes incredible.

But there is a lot of joy to mix up this recipe by adding tasty toppings. 

Here are some creative toppings ideas to turn these baked eggs into a whole meal:

  • Salsa+Greek Yogurt+Cilantro
  • Bacon+Your favorite cheese+Chives: It adds a little bit more protein, and it’s just the perfect flavor combo.
  • Everything Bagel Seasoning
  • Smoked Salmon+ Dill and Cream Cheese
  • Everything Bagel Seasoning

Can I Make These Baked Eggs In Avocado Ahead Of Time?

If you want to prepare this recipe ahead of time, I recommend starting with the garnishes. Even if you don’t make it ahead of time, this baked avocado and egg dish takes only 10 minutes to prepare.

Can I Make This Recipe In An Instant Pot?

Yes, it’s actually really easy. Just prepare the avocados, then pour one cup of water into the Instant Pot, then place the avocado onto a trivet.

Cook for 4 minutes on Manual High Pressure. Once done, quickly release the pressure, then remove the lid, add your toppings, and enjoy!
