Pinterest Hidden Image

Breakfast is often called the most important meal of the day and for a good reason. It sets the tone for your day, fuels your morning, and can even impact your eating habits for the rest of the day. These loaded avocado baked eggs are the perfect breakfast to fill you up and help get your day off to a good start!

The Magic of Avocado and Baked Eggs

Avocados and eggs are a match made in heaven. Avocados are packed with healthy fats and fiber, while eggs provide a high-quality source of protein. Together, they create a balanced and satisfying meal that is perfect for starting your day right.

Ingredients

The beauty of this recipe lies in its simplicity. All you need are avocados, eggs, bacon, shredded cheese, and some salt and pepper. These ingredients come together to create a dish that’s not only rich in nutrients but also loaded with flavor.

  • 2 large ripe avocados
  • 4 medium eggs
  • sea salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 c. cheddar jack cheese shredded
  • 3 strips sugar-free bacon cooked crispy and crumbled
  • chives or green onions (green parts only) sliced thin, optional

The Process

Start by preheating your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. While the oven is heating up, cut your avocados in half and remove the pits. Scoop out some of the avocado flesh to make room for the eggs.

Next, crack an egg into each avocado half. Don’t worry if some of the white spills over — it’ll still be delicious! Sprinkle the egg-filled avocados with salt and pepper, then top them with bacon and shredded cheese.

Bake the avocados in the preheated oven until the eggs are cooked to your liking. The result? A warm, creamy, and satisfying breakfast that’s as beautiful as it is delicious.

Step-by-step instructions for baked eggs

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Cut avocados in half lengthwise and remove the pits. Use a spoon to carefully remove some of the avocado flesh around the pit to create more space for the egg. Reserve removed flesh for another use (or smash, season with salt and pepper to taste, and top each baked avocado half with a spoonful before serving).
  3. Crack one egg into a small bowl and then carefully transfer the egg into one of the prepared avocado halves. Place the filled avocado onto the prepared baking sheet and repeat this process with the remaining avocado halves and eggs. Season each with salt and black pepper to taste.
  4. Place filled avocado halves in a pre-heated oven to bake for 20-25 minutes or until the eggs are cooked according to your preference.
  5. Remove from the oven and top each avocado half with shredded Cheddar Jack cheese and crispy bacon pieces. Garnish with chives or sliced green onions, if desired, and serve immediately. Enjoy!

Notes

There are a couple of “tricks” to perfecting this recipe. For starters, use large avocados and medium-sized eggs. Otherwise, the egg white may overflow the avocado. Cracking each egg into a small bowl before carefully pouring it into the avocado will also help prevent spills.

Tip: To keep your egg-filled avocados from tipping over while baking, position them over the holes of a muffin tin, rather than on a flat baking sheet, before placing them in the oven.
