Have you ever thought of baking avocados? I know its never the first thought that comes to anyones mind. However, baked avocados are so yummy because the texture becomes even creamier. Baked egg in avocado is a fun way to have a balanced snack or meal. I love this recipe because it is an amazing low carb option with perfect amount of fiber, protein and healthy fats. I love making this recipe when I am in time crunch or when I want to eat something very filling.
This recipe is very simple, easy and customizable. This dish can be made within 5 minutes and also can be prepped ahead of time for parties. I love how everyone gets a portion and customized with different toppings of their choice. Scoop out some avocado for the egg to fit, which I promise you it is more than you think. First time everyone makes a mistake and has a spillage, BUT IT IS OK! Cooking is an art and we learn from trial and errors to get perfection 😉
Make sure your avocados are room temp and not refrigerated. Scoop out about 1-1.5 tbsp of avocado to create enough room for your egg. If you scoop deep, it will take longer for the egg to cook. Use large eggs. Extra large or jumbo will be too big for the avocado. After cutting avocados, I like to press them against the pan to get somewhat flat surface so it stays stable on the pan so the eggs dont spill out. There are two ways to insert the egg. You can either gently crack the egg and let any whites overflow into your baking dish (it’ll happen). Or, you can crack the egg into a small bowl, then use a spoon to transfer the yolk into the avocado first and add just enough egg white to fit the cavity. Either way works.
1 large avocado, halved and pit removed
1/3 cup of tomatoes, finely chopped
1/3 cup of onions, finely chopped
1-2 thai chillies, finely chopped
salt and pepper
other spices as desired (chili powder, cumin-coriander powder, garlic/ginger powder)
Preheat oven to 350F or you can also make these in your airfryer. Carefully scoop out enough avocado from the center for each half to make room for an egg. In a baking dish with sides, place avocado halves cut side up. Press little to get somewhat of flat surface. Crack an egg in each half of the avocado. Add your veggies, seasonings on top and bake at 350F for 15-20 minutes or 450F in air fryer for 10 minutes. You can drizzle any sauce you like prior serving. I love eating my eggs with avocado salsa and sriracha sauce.
