These avocado breakfast cups are an easy and filling breakfast recipe. You can pop them in the oven while you shower or get the kids dressed. The healthy fats and protein from the eggs gives you lasting energy and the creaminess of the avocado is great with egg.
There are also endless toppings you could add: diced tomatoes, sliced green onions, feta cheese, salsa, some raw cheese, a dash of hot sauce, etc. Personally, I love adding salsa and hot sauce.
I originally saw a similar idea on Pinterest, but made a few modifications to get the texture better. If you’re an avocado fan, try these! I like topping them with feta and green onions, or salsa and cilantro …
Some people do not like the texture of cooked avocado. If you aren’t a huge avocado fan, you probably won’t like this cooked variation any more than fresh avocado, and I wouldn’t try this one.
Avocado Breakfast Bake Recipe
- Preheat the oven to 350°F.
- Cut the avocados in half and carefully remove the pit.
- Put avocados open side up in a large baking dish. If they are small avocados, scoop out a little of the extra flesh to make more room for the egg.
- Crack one egg into each avocado half and sprinkle with sea salt and pepper. Place in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until egg is cooked as desired. For my oven, 17 minutes gets the perfect egg yolk.
- Top with desired toppings while still hot and enjoy!

How fun is this! Love eggs and avos! I use sliced avocados on my eggs, but have never thought about cooking them! Woohoo! Will need to try something new!
i found that the avocado rolled around too much causing my egg to spill out. I cut a small slice off the bottom of the avocado so that it was stable. This helped tremendously!
Try using a canning jar ring to hold the avocado
Or an egg ring…
Thanks for the tip…
I actually have yet to venture past eating avos in salads and guacamole. I’ve been stumped as to how else I could eat them. This is going to be breakfast tomorrow. Thanks for posting!
Yeah, must pluck enough courage to try cooking an avocado – I often whizz them in the blender with some creamy yoghurt for a truly fab smoothie!
I wonder if broiling this would work better? Cook the top of the egg without baking the avocado
Now this looks good! I am not a fan of eggs, but I will eat anything with avocado and a little pico de gallo!
Ugh, that looks sickeningly good. High protein low carb too. I’m totally trying this – thanks a lot!

That looks wonderful! Personally I just like to eat my avocadoes with a spoon. But for the rest of the family I mash them up with a little garlic salt and a squeeze of lime juice and eat with tortilla chips.
I tried baked avocados once and I really didn’t like them… but this just looks and sounds so good that I’m willing to give it a try again 🙂
Spice and toppings are key… put some good sea salt and pepper on it and top with some flavorful toppings and it is great. The avocado itself doesn’t have much taste but it pairs great with so many toppings!
I love avocados, but never thought of eating them cooked. Is the texture the same after baking?
It is a little silkier when cooked but I really like it, especially with the eggs…
Can you tell me how many calories in the avacado breakfast bake
I am anxious to try this dish! I reduce Balsamic vinegar by at least half to make a syrup. The vinegar, even less expensive varieties take on a sweetness and depth of flavor. I introduced my wife to halved avocados with the balsamic reduction poured into the void left from the removal of the seed. Then just scoop out the flesh with a spoon, she can’t get enough! It is an amazing combination. I wonder if a little balsamic syrup drizzled over thae top of this dish would work with egg and avocado once it is cooked. The balsamic reduction is good drizzled over strawberries!
