Avocado + Egg = Amazing!

Have I mentioned before how much I LOVE breakfast foods? They’re my  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.

With avocado, bacon, egg and cheese you really can’t go wrong. The combination of flavors makes for a simple but filling breakfast that I think you will enjoy too.

How to Pick Avocados?

TIPS FOR AVOCADOS: Use the following info to help you choose your avocado. Aside from the overripe avocados I will usually buy 2-3 of each kind so that I have perfectly ripe avocados all week long. Avocados ripen off of the tree. To test an avocado hold it in the palm of your hand and gently press with your fingers. 

  • If the avocado has a lot of give and feels mushy then it is too ripe and leave it at the market.
  • If the avocado has some give and feels soft then it perfect to use within 2-3 days before it become overripe.
  • An avocado that has some give but still feels firm is labeled as “breaking” and is almost ripe. Let it sit at room temperature for 1-2 more days for it to becomes perfectly ripe. 
  • An avocado that feels completely firm will need 4-5 more days at room temperature to fully ripen. 
  • To slow down the ripening process store avocados in the fridge. A perfectly ripe avocado can last 2-3 days at room temperature or 3-5 days in the fridge.

Baked avocado egg Variations + Tips

There are so many ways to change up baked avocado eggs and add a bit more flavor. Here are some suggestions:

  • Mexican – Use Mexican cheese, add chopped peppers or green chilis
  • Greek – Use feta cheese and sausage instead of bacon. You can also add chopped spinach!
  • 3 meat – Use mozzarella and add bacon, ham and sausage to the eggs

Can I freeze bacon and egg avocados? Though raw avocados can be frozen successfully, these baked avocados are best eaten right away. They can be kept in the fridge for 1-2 days and reheated, but I do not recommend freezing them.

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!

    Any suggestions for how to reheat without over cooking?

    Anyone try using an air fryer to cook these? If so, suggestions

    Thanks!

    My avocado was too small to hold the egg so I lined a muffin tin, added a teaspoon of olive oil and scooped chunks of avocado into it. Added the egg, salt and pepper, bacon pieces and smothered it in shredded sharp cheddar cheese. I baked it until the cheese turned a light golden brown on top. I removed it from the oven and let it cool a bit before flipping it into a small serving bowl. It tasted good but the flavor all came from the egg, bacon, salt and cheese.
    I have read that avocados are supposed to be very healthy for you but I find them to be nothing but filler as far as having any taste. I guess people eat them like they do cauliflower, for the fiber, vitamins and minerals??
    Half an avocado contains 114 calories, 1.3 grams (g) of protein, 10.5 g of fat, 6 g of total carbs, and 5 g of fiber (bringing it to 1 g of net carbs), per data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA)

    great low cal lunchtime meal, economical, inexpensive and healthy, what more could you want.
    have replaced bacon with plant based bacon, works well

  4. Where’s the number of carbs on your table for the avocado baked eggs recipe? It’s clearly a good keto option.

    1. I imagine this would be a great keto-friendly option. Unfortunately, our nutrition facts for this recipe don’t calculate the carbs.

  5. I’m going to try this tonight and give you a review tomorrow
    Like you said it’s awesome to have breakfast at dinner

  6. You must have really large avocados and small eggs. I tried this numerous times and no matter how much avocado I scooped out the egg still ran out. If I only have shell left what’s the point.
    I finally scooped out all of it and put it in a custard dish, put the egg and rest of the ingredients on top and baked it that way.
    It was perfect!

      I did the same, adding sautéed diced onion and red peppers. Very good. A little salsa on top added spice.

    Oven temperatures do vary and experimentation may be the only way to know what works. My stove is new and so is this recipe; so I learned that 425 for 14 minutes is too long or too hot. Eggs were thoroughly cooked so I’ll try again making time/temp adjustments. I love the concept of using these ingredients.

  8. The only thing I changed was instead of muffin pan I made aluminum foil baskets by crumpling the foil, worked much better!
