eggs in avocado

The peaches are all picked, given away or eaten. Makes me somewhat sad but also relieved. I can write about something else now! Plus, peach season continues at farmers’ markets, so I can always get my fix if needed.

Avocado Baked Eggs

  • 2 large ripe firm avocados
  • 4 medium to large eggs
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Mama Mai’s S&P
  • Linda’s Southwest Seasoning
  • 1 medium ripe tomato, diced
  • 1 small yellow bell pepper, cored, seeded, and diced
  • Chopped fresh cilantro
  • Plain non-fat yogurt
  • Hot sauce
  • Additional lime for garnish

egg fixings

Position the oven rack in the middle and preheat to 450 degrees.

open avocado

Cut each avocado in half and remove the pit.

scoop out center

Use a spoon to scrape out the center flesh of each halved avocado so that the area is large enough to hold an egg. Chop the scooped-out avocado and set it aside.

Spray a baking sheet or small baking pan with non-stick baking spray. This will help with cleaning up if any of the eggs spill out onto the baking pan. Transfer the avocados to the pan.

Squeeze juice from 1 lime over the avocados.

egg in avocado

Break an egg into a bowl and use your hand to lift out the yolk and however much egg white comes along with the yolk and place it in the center of each avocado. Leave any white that was left in the bowl where it is.

four eggs

Repeat with the remaining three eggs.

seasoned eggs

Season with Mama Mai’s S&P and/or Linda’s Southwest Seasoning. Or, just use salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Add 1/4 cup water to the baking pan and cover loosely with foil. Carefully transfer to the center rack of the preheated oven and bake until the whites are set and the yolk is runny about 12 to 14 minutes.
