Ingredients for Baked Eggs in Avocado

Avocados: there are a couple of variations to choose from but I prefer the popular Hass avocados which are creamier and less watery than others.

Eggs: use the smaller ones for this recipe so they can fit perfectly inside the avocados.

Salt and pepper: serves as a flavor enhancer for this simple breakfast recipe.

Parmesan cheese: elevates any dish added with it due to its nutty and savory flavors. Feel free to skip this if you’re not a fan.

Parsley: adds a touch of earthiness into this very straightforward avocado with egg recipe.

You can of course add further ingredients such as cooked bacon bits, diced ham, quartered cherry tomatoes, or minced onions.

Expert Tips For Baked Eggs in Avocado

  • Always use ripe avocado when making any kind of baked avocado dishes. The avocado flesh is much softer and slightly sweeter and richer, making an overall better-tasting dish. You can reserve the scooped-out avocado for making guacamole or a smoothie.
  • You can also make scrambled baked eggs in avocado instead of sunny-side-up eggs. Combine the eggs, salt and pepper, plus add-ins, and whisk them vigorously. Then, carefully pour them into the avocadoes before adding the shredded cheese topping.
  • To prevent the avocado-baked eggs from falling over in the oven, cut a small piece off on their backs. You can also make “stands” with foil so that the baked avocado halves can sit upright. Another way to keep them standing upright is to place avocado halves inside a baking dish or muffin tin.
