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?!

Recipe Review


  1. This is so original – I love this combination! I’m sending a link to my sis-in-law who I imagine will make it with a dash of something spicy on top!

  2. Robyn, this is brilliant! I’m trying SO hard to get back on track with good eating (ugh)… this is SUCH a fun breakfast alternative to boring eggs. Can’t wait to make these!!!!

  3. Wow, these look delicious! You’ve combined two of my favorite things – avocados and eggs! Pinning this! 🙂

    1. 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.

    2. 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.

    1. 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.

  4. 5 stars
    I have to try these! My daughter loves avocado toast or egg in a basket for breakfast and this is the perfect alternative!

  5. Robin, can another vegetable like Roma tomatoes be used?  I saw the portobello mushroom recipe. This recipe looks delicious; I just don’t care for avocados. 


    1. Hi Deb,
      You could try a few of my other baked eggs recipes if you aren’t a fan of avocados. Along with the mushroom one you mention, there are couple of other delicious ones! Enjoy! xo

  6. This was very good but I put banana peppers a couple rings diced thin. And sharp cheddar cheese.
    Was very good.
