It’s been a while since I first put this recipe together. This easy breakfast recipe came to mind again recently when I had a few too many ripe avocados to eat. (I also had a few eggs from the farmer’s market that were in their last week.) So, baked avocado it is!
I love pairing avocado with eggs for breakfast. If you’re the same, you might even enjoy my breakfast sweet potato fries, too. Now, when I baked these last week, I realized that back when I first started making these, I kept it pretty plain, but this time around, I decided to add a little bit more spice. You could even add a sprinkle of red pepper flakes if you want a little bit more!
This baked avocado recipe is super simple, with just four ingredients and a little salt & pepper. I like to pair these with a slice of toasted sourdough bread most days, but I’ve also been known to serve them with bagels. My personal preference for my “eggvocado” is a runny egg yolk, it’s perfect for soaking up with whatever bread you choose to pair with your easy baked breakfast.
While my baked avocado recipe calls for sriracha and goat cheese, you can really customized
“Eggvocado” – Baked Avocado and Egg
- 1 Avocado
- 2 Eggs
- Goat Cheese
- Salt & Pepper to taste
- Preheat the over to 375* F
- Cut the avocado in half and remove the pit. Scoop 1-2 Tbsp of avocado from the center of each half, to make room for the eggs.
- Spray a baking sheet with non-stick spray (I use olive oil). Optional: use two small pieces of tin foil to make a "nest" to keep the avocado halves stable.
- Place the halved avocados on the cookie sheet, then crack one egg into each half of the avocado.
- Sprinkle each egg with salt & pepper, then bake for 20 – 25 minutes, depending on how you like your egg to be cooked. (I like to keep mine a little runny in the middle…perfect for a soaking up with a slice of sourdough toast!)
- When your eggs are cooked to your liking, drizzle with sriracha (or your favorite hot sauce), and sprinkle with as much goat cheese as you like. Personally, I like go a little heave-handed with the goat cheese.
- Enjoy on its own, with a slice of your favorite toast, or even with a bagel if that's more your thing!
