Recipe: Baked Egg in Avocado With Parsley and Goat Cheese

with 4 comments

Earlier this year, pictures of eggs baked in avocado were the darling of the online food porn world. Then I tested out the recipe myself, and the result was so good I wonder how I ever lived without this creation.

The concept is simple: bake an egg in an avocado. If you were looking for a way to put all those eggs from your backyard chicken coop to use you should certainly put this recipe on the breakfast list.

Avocados are jam-packed with fiber, potassium and vitamins, and if you like morning meals that are high in protein, this one’s for you. Because you can top off the eggs with pretty much any ingredient you can think of, you are only limited by your own creativity.


  • 1 avocado (or more depending on how many you are serving!)
  • 2 eggs
  • Parsley
  • Goat cheese crumbles
  • Sea salt
  • Ground black pepper


You can garnish the egg with anything you want. Basil is a good place to start.


Cut the avocado in half and remove the pit. Scoop out a little of the avocado from the center to make a little additional space for the egg. Place avocados in a cast iron skillet. (A baking pan works as well if you don’t have a cast iron skillet).

Crack an egg into each avocado half. Depending on the size of your eggs, some of the egg white may spill out into the skillet.

Bake at 425 for 20 minutes. This results in the eggs being well done, if you like your eggs a little runnier reduce the time.
