Eggs Baked in Avocado

3.7 from 3 reviews

Egg whites and yolks are separately cooked in avocado over stove to have the yolks perfectly soft. Amazingly healthy and yummy breakfast!


  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 avocado
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon chopped mint leaves for garnish


  1. Cut the avocado in half and scoop out some of the flesh in the center so that there is enough room for the eggs to sit. You can serve that part alongside with the cooked eggs.
  2. Separate the yolks and whites. Put the whites in a bowl, yolks into two different bowls.
  3. Add salt into whites and mix well.
  4. Heat olive oil in a pan and sear the avocado halves, flesh side down for 15-20 seconds until a little golden.
  5. Flip them over and share the egg whites into each. Don’t worry if they overflow since it forms a very nice white plate on which avocado halves are set.
  6. Put the lid on, turn the heat down and cook for 5-10 minutes until the whites inside avocados are set.
  7. Slide the yolks into the avocados over the whites. Put the lid on and cook for 2-3 minutes. You might see a thin white cover on the yolks, but they will go away and the yolks will look really shiny and yellow after about a minute.
  8. Garnish with chopped mint leaves and serve.
