Eggs Baked in Avocado

When researching our Rise of the Avocado blog post, we couldn't stop ourselves from thinking of all the different ways we can incorporate avocados into our meals. We stumbled upon this great recipe, Eggs Baked in Avocado. The baked avocado is creamy, and the combination of avocado, eggs and salsa is classic. These would be great for breakfast, (or if you're up late, brunch), or even as a small dinner.

Read on to find out how to make this eggy avocado deliciousness...

How long will it take me? 

Prep time - 10 mins
Cook time - 15 mins
Total time - 25 mins

What do I need to make it?
  • 1 large, just-ripe Haas avocado
  • 2 eggs - the smaller the better
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons cooked red salsa or tomato sauce

How do I make it?
  1. Heat oven to Gas Mark 6. Line a baking sheet with foil.
  2. Cut the avocado in half and remove the pit. Using a spoon, scrape out the center of each half - you want it to be large enough to accommodate a small/medium egg.
  3. Season the avocado halves with salt and place on the prepared baking sheet. Break each egg into a small bowl, then carefully slide the yolk, and as much as will fit from the white, into the center of each avocado half.
  4. Bake 15 minutes, or until whites are set. Remove from the oven. Allow to slightly cool, about 5 minutes (it will be too hot to enjoy straight out of the oven), then sprinkle with freshly ground black pepper and garnish with salsa.

How do I eat it?

Serve as is with a spoon, or scoop it out and spread on warm toast.
