Baked Eggs in Avocado with Crispy Bacon Recipe

Serves 2


  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 4 eggs
  • Salt and pepper
  • Bacon
  • Ikura
  • Parmesan Cheese
  • Sesame crackers
  • Toast


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Line a baking tray with bacon and bake in oven for 20 minutes or until crisp. If you like it even crispier, line the bacon on top of a wire rack and place the wire rack over a baking sheet to catch the bacon drippings. Crumble cooled bacon and set aside.
  3. Preheat oven to 425°F.


4. Cut ripe avocado in half. Pit avocado.

5. Hollow out some of the avocado and set aside. Scoop out just enough avocado so that an egg can sit inside.

6. Line a baking pan with tin foil and place the avocados (hollowed side facing up) on the sheet.


7. With another piece of tin foil, scrunch it around the avocado forming a nest so that it sits nicely in place. This will also help with any overflow of egg.

8. Crack an egg into each of the hollowed out avocados.

9. Season with salt and pepper.

10. Bake avocados in the oven for 10-15 minutes depending on how runny you like your yolk. For softer egg yolks I recommend 10-12 minutes.


11. Remove avocados from the oven.

12. Eat with toast and top with your choice of ingredients. I prefer bacon and ikura for a surf and turf combination. If you wish to use cheese, top the avocados with cheese before baking them in the oven.
