Eggs poached within avocado – – easy and delicious

Eggs poached within avocado. Then utilize them in any way you choose!

This recipe is so straight forward and simple to utilize for a quick breakfast, lunch, or dinner.  I put the finished avocado halves over a dressed salad for an easy healthy lunch.  One could use lime for squeezing and garnish with cilantro then serve over rice and/or beans. Maybe throw in some warm tortillas for sopping up that yolk.  One good thing is that this recipe can be scaled up or down depending upon how many are being served!


1 avocado

2 Large eggs

1 lemon

Kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper


Adjust oven rack to middle position and preheat to 450°F.

Cut each avocado in half and remove the pit. Using a spoon, scrape out the center of each halved avocado so that it is just large enough to accommodate an egg. Squeeze lemon juice over the avocados so they don’t turn brown then season with salt. Place on a baking sheet. Break an egg into the center of each avocado. Some of the white may spill out and that’s just fine. Just as long as the yolk remains intact.

Bake in the oven until whites are set and yolk is runny, about 10 to 12 minutes. Check at the 10 minute mark to make sure the egg yolks will be on the poached side. Add another 2 minutes here and there as needed.  The key is to check. Remove from oven giving each avocado a little black pepper. Then it is up to you to be as creative as you’d like with them.  Have fun!
