This may sound kind of gross to people, who have never had a warm avocado. I first tried warm avocados when I made some kind of roll-ups and it was good.
Do not let the size of the avocado seed fool you. It is not big enough to fit the egg in there. You have to scoop out some of the avocado in order for it to fit. I ended up having an egg white mess all over my tin-foil. A good thing I made these over tin foil right? Easy clean up.
This is with almost half of the egg whites gone. Don’t let it fool you! I just decided to go with it.
Sprinkle the egg with salt and pepper and bake in an oven at 375. If you want the egg to get done faster cook it at a higher temp. Mine took a bit longer than 15 minutes, maybe because it was inside an avocado?
Top with whatever you like. I like bacon and scallions and used that. Some tuna maybe? I don’t know, what you fancy the most. I like my yolks creamy so when you cut into the avocado with a fork and get the bacon and scallions on top of everything, it’s pretty much heaven. Avocados have 13.5 grams of fiber and 4 grams of protein. This is a good snack or maybe morning breakfast and you’ll get both the fiber and protein all in one!Print
Paleo & Low Carb Baked Eggs in Avocado
- 2 small eggs
- 1 avocado, halved and pitted
- 2 slices cooked bacon, crumbled
- 2 teaspoons of chopped fresh chives
- Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
Crack the eggs into a bowl, being careful to keep the yolks intact.
Arrange avocado halves in a baking dish, resting them along the edge so avocado won’t tip over. Gently spoon 1 egg yolk into the avocado hole. Continue spooning egg white into the hole until full. Repeat with remaining egg yolk, egg white, and avocado. Season each filled avocado with chives, parsley, sea salt, and pepper.
Gently place baking dish in the preheated oven and bake until eggs are cooked, about 15 minutes. Sprinkle bacon over avocado.
