Avocado Bacon and Eggs

Breakfast · January 5, 2015

Avocado Bacon and eggs - one of our favorite breakfast recipes. They're topped with cheese and so delicious!

Have I mentioned before how much I LOVE breakfast foods? They’re my Β FAVORITE!!

Unfortunately, I feel like we don’t have as much time in the morning to enjoy all the delicious breakfast recipes, but thankfully we have them for dinner quite often. We usually try to make breakfast at least on Saturdays since it’s a day we usually have a little more time, but I wish we could do it even more often. We do have some quick breakfast treats we like to make and today I’m sharing one of those simple, fast recipes.

Today’s recipe is for Avocado Bacon and Eggs. I had first seen them on The View from in HereΒ and knew I’d love them because I’m quite obsessed with avocados. I made a few changes and have found a new favorite recipe the hubby and I enjoy in the mornings. The combination of the avocado with the cheese, bacon and eggs makes for a simple but filling breakfast that I think you will enjoy too.

Avocado Bacon and Eggs
  • 1 medium Avocado
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 piece of cooked bacon, crumbled
  • 1 TB of low-fat cheese
  • pinch of salt
  1. Preheat oven to 425.
  2. Begin by cutting the avocado in half and removing the pit.
  3. With a spoon, scoop out some of the avocado so it's a tad bigger than your egg and yolk. Place in a muffin pan to keep the avocado stable while cooking.
  4. Crack your egg and add it to the inside of your avocado. Sprinkle a little cheese on top with a pinch of salt. Top with cooked bacon.
  5. Cook for 14-16 minutes. Serve warm.

Mmmm! I admit that I sometimes eat an avocado for breakfast or even for lunch, but eating it with the cooked egg, cheese and bacon in the middle is even better!

ever tried this in the microwave?


this will be the best breakfast !
but im sorry im really not good at oven. cook for 14-16mins means bake? or broiled? im sorry i always get confuse.


    Hey, Jenny! At the beginning of the recipe it says to preheat oven to 425 degrees. That mean on bake…if you were meant to broil something, the recipe would say preheat broiler or give you ingredients and then say broil for such and such a time. Hope that helps!! πŸ™‚

      Lil' Luna

      Thank you so much Valerie! Yes, you bake it:) I’d love to know if you try this and what you think! They are delicious!


How soft is the yoke when these are done? I prefer a runny yoke over one that’s cooked all the way through. I’m wondering if I should reduce the cook time?


good idea take a good food and make it unhealthy by adding eggs cheese and bacon fat fat and oh yeah more fat!


    What’s the good food? Avocado? Also has lots of fat. Fat isn’t a bad thing. Eggs aren’t unhealthy. Neither is cheese unless you can’t have dairy…
    This is actually a very healthy breakfast for most people!


      It’s a very very good low carb and great tasting breakfast!! Avocado has fat, too.. but good fat (there is good & bad fat, Denise, didn’t you know??) Eggs are very healthy! full of protein. So is cheese. Obviously Denise you do not know your nutrition… study up!


    Then don’t make the recipe. Some of us may enjoy things that you do not approve of. I am sure the reverse is also true.

    Rachel Blair

    Lol most of this is still pretty healthy, asides from the bacon. And it’s one measly piece you use. I think this recipe is an awesome idea! Maybe you should take your negativity elsewhere and get a life πŸ™‚


    Ever looked into the Ketogenic diet??


    It is not unhealthy if you are following a ketogenic diet. Do your research.


    It’s actually perfect for those on the Keto Diet.


    This would be considered a meal, especially if you had a vegetable and/or fruit on the side. The avocado would be the lipid, cheese would be dairy, egg would be protein, and the bacon could be used as protein or lipid. Instead of bacon, I’m going to use turkey, which would be more protein. All of these macro nutrients are needed to make a meal. πŸ™‚

    The whole point of a keto diet is to sub carbs out of your diet for fats…when I keto roughly 70% of my diet is all fats while I eat a max of 30 net carbs a day (not including fibre). For someone that’s doing a keto diet this is a breakfast of the godsπŸ‹πŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ‘πŸΌ

seems like a really long time in the oven, what is the doneness of the egg, I rather like mine to the over easy consistency, also, what does it do to the avocado, and is it better if they are slightly under ripe?

    Lis Boriss

    I made these just now, and at 14 minutes my eggs were underdone; the whites were still clear. An additional 10 minutes though has them totally cooked, solid yolks and all, so somewhere in the middle might be the sweet spot if you like runny eggs.

      Lil' Luna

      Thanks for the comment. I know every oven is different so it’s always good to keep an eye out and adjust the time depending on what you like. Hope you liked them!! πŸ˜€


      I had the same results. I tried it for 16 minutes the second time,but the eggs were still very runny. I guess I’ll increase the time for my oven


i think you were going for “a tad bigger” when suggesting one dig out some of the avocado!

Sol Figues

How many calories do you think this have? I heard Avocado is great for losing the extra pounds and would love to try it.


    About 200 calories each


These look delicious! I love avocadoes. I might have them for lunch tomorrow πŸ™‚

    Lil' Luna

    I love avocados, too!! You’ll love this:) Thanks for checking them out!!


Do you think this would work with scrambled eggs?

    Lil' Luna

    I haven’t tried this with scrambled eggs. It doesn’t hurt to try:) I’d love to know if they turn out, if you make them. Thanks so much!!


Me and the wife trying to lose weight with Paleo and Advocare, and a breakfast like this doesn’t feel like any kinda diet but it is..Thanx sooooo much for a GREAT recipe…Tossed a little hot sauce on the egg before putting in and came out fantastic.skipped the cheese but still awesome..Definitely a keeper !

    Lil' Luna

    You are welcome!! I hope you both loose what you want πŸ™‚ Glad you found the recipe and I like what you did to change it up!! Good luck!

Kathleen M.

This is so good! I just made it for the 3rd time. Newer low carb higher protein lifestyle and this is perfect.

    Lil' Luna

    Yay!! SO glad and yes, a healthier breakfast! Thanks for letting me know!


Just found this on Pinterest!! So yummy!! I did switch the salt for cayenne pepper as I love spicy food!! Lol


This recipe was an unmitigated disaster. To hollow out an avocado enough to accept an egg left me with nothing but the avocado skin. Avocado’s do not sit in cupcake pans without tipping. While I will admit the flavors are very good together, the effort required to make this was more than I care to deal with this morning. I will not be attempting this again.

    Lil' Luna

    So sorry that it was a mess. I didn’t scoop out all the avocado, just enough for the egg to fit, so there was still plenty of avocado in it. Thanks for giving it a try!


We’re enjoying this right now! Definitely needed 10 more minutes in the oven…after the first 15, the top was firm but the insides were very runny. So I just laid some aluminum foil loosely over the top and put it back in for 10. Also beat the eggs in a bowl first, then added them to the avocado. Super yummy and fun!

    Lil' Luna

    So glad you liked it!! Thanks so much for giving it a try πŸ™‚


Great recipe, love the flavors together! I’m just starting to eat more avocados so I was quite happy to come across this recipe. I made it tonight and found I will need to cook it a little longer next time for the eggs to set (as a few others mentioned). Quick question: is it okay to eat the skin?

    Lil' Luna

    I don’t eat the skin. Does anyone else? I just scoop the goodness out of it πŸ™‚ This is a great recipe for those starting to eat avocados more! Thank you!

Jasmine P.

What is the recommended shelf life? If I prepped this at night time would they last the next day for breakfast? Also wondering about reheating? This looks simply delicious and I can’t wait to try it!

    Lil' Luna

    Not sure I would make and eat later. Avocados get brown so quickly, unless you knew a way to keep them fresh. It really is good, but I would probably make & eat them freshly made.


My egg won’t cook. I’ve had them in the oven for over 1/2 hr and the whites are still runny. I will attempt again sometime but might lightly beat the egg first.

    Lil' Luna

    Oh, I’m sorry!! You may have to adjust times, since all ovens are different. Hopefully, it will turn out next time πŸ™‚ Thank you so much!!


Just made this, turned out Delicious!!! Only problem I ran into was pouring the egg into the avocado got a bit messy. Couldn’t fit all of the egg white into avocado even after scooping some of the avocado out, ended up overflowing the egg into the muffin tray with the first half. the second half I instead just put in the egg yolk first, then poured as much egg white as I could fit without overflowing. Worked much better that time! And it was really easy, which considering my idea of cooking generally consists of making a sandwich, is really saying something. Went especially well with a glass of orange juice. Highly recommend this recipe!

    Lil' Luna

    You’re too funny!! I’m glad you found a way to make it work. Thank you for letting me know πŸ™‚

    It is!! πŸ™‚ Hope you’ll try them! Thank you so much for stopping by!

The organic avocados I had on hand were on the smallish side: a large egg filled the avocado shell, avocado all removed!
I had to improvise, putting the avocado into a buttered ramekin until it was half full, then putting the egg on top. It baked up nicely in a 1″ deep water bath in under 20 minutes.
Not quite the cute presentation seen in Luna’s pics, but I did keep all the avocado! Now to wash the ramekins….

    Lil' Luna

    You are awesome for improvising!! I’m glad they worked out!! Thank you!

Cindy Clark

Are you supposed to eat both halves or is one half a serving?


I’m definitely trying this tomorrow… using turkey bacon instead. Crossing my fingers.

    Lil' Luna

    Good luck and hope you like it!! Let me know what you think! Thanks πŸ™‚


Had to make a couple modifications but it was still delicious!

My camper oven is too unreliable and the convection microwave not much better. I ended up using my NuWave (to the rescue). Started in the conv/micro set at 400* (highest it will go) and after 10 minutes yolk and white were still raw.
Moved to new NuWave, full power, 5 minutes… perfect!

Next modification was to switch to non-dairy cheese (Daiya Monterey Jack shreds) and added a dusting of Herbs De Provence.

This recipe is now in my faves list! Thank u so much for the fab recipe!!!

    Lil' Luna

    Awesome! Thanks so much for sharing what you did πŸ™‚


Sorry – looked great but did’t like it at all. Eggs and avocado are not a great combo for me.


I was just wondering if anyone knows how long this would keep in the fridge? I try to meal prep for the week and this looks perfect for my husband and I.

    Lil' Luna

    I am guessing not long. Avocado browns so fast & with that egg on there..not sure it would last long.


OMG! I’ve died and gone to heaven! These were so easy and tasted delicious! My new favourite breakfast

    Lil' Luna

    Yay!!! I’m so glad you think so! Thank you so much for letting me know and thank you for making them!

Marcel Ulvert

Did not come out as good as it looked. Something about heated avocado just does not meet my tastebuds.
I have been cooking a long time and followed instructions to the letter. I would do it again, but not baking the avocado.

    Lil' Luna

    Maybe it’s not for everyone, but thank you so much for trying it!! πŸ™‚


Can you pre-make a week’s worth and keep them in the fridge or freeze them?

    Kristyn Merkley

    I have not tried. I’m not sure about the avocado lasting, if it’s in the fridge or how they would hold up in the freezer. I would just try making a couple extra & seeing how they do in both the fridge & freezer. I hope they hold up well!


Everyone does know that eggs come in small, medium, large, & xtra large right? And avocados can range from smaller to the bigger side. Sounds like a great recipe so I may try a smaller egg into a medium to big size avocado. Just for those having problems with how to pick out produce and eggs.


What is the count for Carbs, Dietary Carbs, Fats, and Proteins in this recipe? Absolutely loved this meal!!!! I added sour cream!


I just tried this recipe. I’m a picky eater and didn’t think I’d like it. I LOVED IT!! I can’t wait to make it for my husband. I didnt want to waste what i scooped out so I mashed it with a spoon of homemade blueberry jam and put it on a piece of toast. Yummy. Thank you for posting.


I like this

Dirk Levy

Kristyn, I’m new to your site and recipes. Your post of the egg in avocado caught my eye. You write well too which makes it all fun. “Stinkin’ cute kids” and “smokin’ hot hubby”. I’m looking forward to trying your recipes out. My “smokin’ hot wife” and I are 52 and 47 respectfully and brand new empty nesters. New food and exciting food is part of the plan. Best to you and your family.

    Kristyn Merkley

    Awe, thank you so much!! I’d love to know what you think of the ones you try! Hopefully, you both like them all!! Have fun!


Just tried this! Love love love! Added a little bit of salsa on top!

Java PaceBrown

Are these good to make a day ahead

    Kristyn Merkley

    I am not sure I would. Once you cut avocado, it browns quickly, but that’s me. I am not sure how well it would hold up in the fridge.


I made this. I left it in the oven at 425 for 20 min. The egg was still very runny..

    Kristyn Merkley

    The egg is runny, but if you don’t like it like that, you may need to keep them in longer. I know all ovens are different, so times vary. I hope that helps & hope you like it!


How ripe was your avocado when you cooked it? Can you do this with an under ripe avocado or do you need to wait?

    Kristyn Merkley

    I am sure you could. I can’t remember how ripe or not mine was, but in my opinion, I thought it was pretty ripe.

Kathy Schroeder

Hello! I am glad I stumbled onto your site. This avocado egg breakfast looks yummy! Thank you. I will be fixing it in the not to distant future.
Since I am crazy about avocado, eggs, cheese and bacon, this recipe is sure to please!

Patricia Hoover

The avocado, egg bacon and cheese looks delicious. Will give it a try real soon.


This was absolutely delicious and accommodated my keto diet!


Do you happen to know the basic nutritional facts for this recipe? I didn’t see any, but I’m doing a Keto diet and I’m trying to record my daily carb intake.

    Kristyn Merkley

    I am sorry, I do not. There are sites that will convert the recipe for you πŸ™‚ I hope you are able to try it!

Jacqueline Ftemplin

I am trying to eat more healthy! I have. Just lost 20 lbs and want to continue or at least maintain

Danielle N Duncan

How well do these keep? Can you prepare in advance with a meal prep and store?

    Kristyn Merkley

    I would probably eat them fresh. Avocado gets brown quick. I haven’t tried making them ahead, but it doesn’t hurt to try πŸ™‚

Cathy Watkins

Made cheese bacon avocado eggs. Was delicious! Have you tried adapting by scrambling an egg for on the go? I’m a teacher and always miss breakfast but am going to see if it works!

    Kristyn Merkley

    I have not, but I need to! I am glad you liked these!! Thank you for sharing that & have fun teaching!
