Baked Eggs in Avocado Cups Recipe

Baked Egg Avocado Cup Recipe - Add a Pinch


Even though this past week I made three cakes, yes… three, we’re trying to watch the amount of bread we eat.  It is just so easy to make waffles, pancakes, biscuits, muffins, scones, or even egg in the hole or breakfast burritos that it had become second nature to load up in the mornings on a bread-laden breakfast.

Breaking from that hasn’t been as easy for me as I would like to admit. Sure, I’ve been drinking lots of smoothies, eating my yogurt, having a scrambled egg, but I was ready for something different. That’s when I fell for these Baked Eggs in Avocado Cups.

And you know, these baked eggs in avocado cups couldn’t be any easier to make either.

Three ingredients, bake for 15 minutes, and your done!


How simple is that?!

      Hi Elizabeth,
      While I’ve not done that, I would think that you could gently reheat it and it still be delicious. Please let me know if you do.

      So sorry it didn’t work for you, Stevani. It could have been that your egg was larger than the impression left by the pit of your avocado or that your avocado tipped a bit during baking. If you’d like to try the recipe again, I’d use a larger avocado and place it into a muffin tin to hold the avocado steady as it bakes.

      I just saw a tv demo of a similar recipe. They separated the egg white from the yolk. Then the demo used the yolk in the avocado — it also made a great presentation. You could probably just use the white as well.
