This was my lunch today: avocado bacon and eggs. It was so good that I had to share it with you. I know it’s not my normal crafty thing, but it sure was delicious! I saw this recipe the other day and pinned it to my paleo Pinterest board. It was such a brilliant idea: eggs baked in avocado. I made the Pinterest version for breakfast over the weekend. It was good, but I had a few problems. Maybe it’s because I’m not a great cook and I don’t really like to cook, so I haven’t picked up on regular cooking tricks. Anyhow, today I tried again and added my own twist – bacon. Here’s the recipe plus what I did to stop it from making a mess:

Avocado Bacon and Eggs

1 Avocado
2 eggs
2 strips cooked bacon, crumbled

Cut the avocado in half and remove the pit. Scoop out the avocado so the hole matches the size of your eggs. I didn’t do this the first time and the eggs were too big and oozed all over the pan.

Crack an egg into each half of the avocado, resting the edge of the avocado on the side of the cookie sheet. This helps keep it stable so the avocado doesn’t roll and spill the egg. Add the pieces of bacon to the top and place in the oven at 425 degrees for 15 minutes. You can adjust this based on how you like your eggs cooked. Then add salt and pepper to taste. I would not have imagined that warm avocado would be so yummy, but IT IS! I could eat this for any meal.

UPDATE: Thanks to recommendations from my smart readers, I have been using a muffin tin to stabilize these in the oven. It works like a charm, and even if you misjudge how much avocado to scoop out like I did last time and the egg spills over, the mess is contained in one tiny section. I even ate the spilled egg in this version. Thanks for the tips, everyone!

    I tried doing this tonight and I took your advice and scooped out plenty of avocado but I still had the white spilling all over the place so before I had a major fail I changed tactics and made it into a casserole. Did you use small eggs? Or, did you have white spilling over and I can’t see in the photo?
    Thanks!

  16. kristy says:

    Super excited to try this! Just a thought though; if you use a sharp knife to cut a small area off of the outside of the avacodo halves, in order to have a flat surface, it should keep it from rolling. It doesn’t have to be much, just slicing off the rounded area.

  17. I love that you added bacon

  18. Betsy says:

    Thanks, Heather! It was really good. Thank you for the original inspiration!

  19. Elyse says:

    Just made this and it was delicious!! I added slivered tomatoes, fresh cilantro, and a bit of garlic salt on top. Love the poached texture of the egg. Such a yummy breakfast!

    I added some chopped spinach leaves… was so yummy! THANK YOU!

  22. Kathryn says:

    Made this tonight and loved it but I would like more avocado with the egg so I may try a hass avocado next time! Is that what you used?

    • Betsy says:

      Hi Kathryn, I’m not sure what kind of avocado I used. I just bought what they had at my market. They were about the size of a fist. Hope that helps!

  23. Kathryn says:

    Forgot the word “large” in front of hass! Is a large hass what you used?

  28. Heather says:

    Tried this. All I can say is amazing. Do you think it would be ok to reheat these?

  29. Connie says:

    these look really good. Has anyone tried resting the avocado in a muffin tin to get it balanced. Seems in my mind that would work pretty well.

  30. Kelly says:

    Just tried it and it was great! Good way to use your avocados that might be too rip to slice and use. Also defiantly needs a full egg per half. I tried scrambling my egg and halting it… Not successful! But I also sat the avacado halves on top of my muffin tins and they didn’t roll around on my (I’m kinda clumsy). Thanks for sharing!

    These just came out of the oven and I’m currently noshing on them. I added a bit of shredded cheese. Oh. My. Lanta. They are ah-mah-zing!

  33. hazel says:

    Make little cradles out of aluminum foil for the avocados, to keep them from tipping in oven. Lightly crush a small sheet of foil for each avo, then use a whole avo and press down into the foil to shape the “cradle”. Save the cradles for the next time. Less cleanup, and thrifty?

      Oh my goodness, it is, Heidi! I had it for lunch yesterday. I’ve started using a muffin tin to hold the avocado and that makes it so the egg doesn’t spill out so easily. Yum!

  42. Tamera Stevens says:

    I may have missed this somewhere in the recipe, but what do you do with the scooped out avocado? Do we simply eat it separately; it doesn’t look like you put it back into the shell so I sure don’t want to mess up this wonderful recipe? I can’t wait to try this; avocados & eggs are two of my favorite foods!
