Avocado Egg Bake (Breakfast Bake)
This Avocado Egg Bake (Breakfast Bake) is a delicious and healthy start to your day (depending on your choice of toppings)! Whatever it is that you like to pile on top, they are a quick and easy breakfast loaded with great flavors!
Keep this tasty breakfast option as healthy as you like, or not and enjoy the buttery taste of fresh avocados with a baked egg center and a colorful assortment of toppings like we do. This is a staple breakfast here at home as there is minimal fuss to serve up a healthier breakfast option for all to enjoy. The toppings can be added to everyone’s individual taste (a big plus if you have a few pickier eaters in the house!).
Remove the core and spoon out some of the center of your avocados to fit an egg inside, and keep the extra avocado to mix with your sour cream and some taco seasoning for a delicious dollop of creamy avocado on top too.
We bake these at 425 degrees F (218 degrees C) and remove my husband’s at the 15 minute mark for a delightfully runny yolk, and then mine at about 18 minutes for an over medium doneness…yumm! Enjoy!

A perfectly yummy breakfast topped with even more fantastic flavors!
- 2 large avocados (halved, some of the center spooned out and set aside)
- 4 eggs (use small eggs, or drain a bit of the egg white off if needed to fit into the avocado)
- 1 tomato (chopped)
- 2 strips bacon (cooked, crumbled)
- 1 green onion (sliced)
- 1 Tbsp sour cream (optional, mix with the excess avocado and some taco seasoning)
- salt & pepper (to taste)
- paprika (to taste)
- lime juice (squezzed when serving, optional)
Cut the avocados in half and remove the pit. If necessary, spoon out some of the flesh from the center of the halved avocados and set the excess aside (to mix with sour cream and taco seasoning, if desired). Place the avocados on a baking sheet or in a baking dish.
Fill each avocado half with 1 egg (pour off some of the egg white if necessary or spoon out a bit more avocado flesh to make them fit - small eggs work best but that is never what I have on hand!).
Add toppings: tomato, bacon crumbles, and green onion (or?? the possibilities are endless). If you prefer, the toppings can be added after baking the avocado baked egg.
Bake in a preheated oven at 425 degrees F (218 degrees C) for 15-20 minutes. Add additional toppings (avocado sour cream mixture) if desired and serve immediately.
