Eggs Baked in Avocado
Health Highlights
A filling breakfast that won't spike your blood sugar levels!


2 medium Egg
1 avocado(s) Avocado
1 tsp Extra virgin olive oil
1 dash Salt


  1. Cut the avocado in half and scoop out some of the flesh in the center to have enough room for the eggs to sit. You can serve that part alongside the cooked eggs.
  2. Separate the yolks and whites. Put the whites in a bowl, yolks into two different bowls.
  3. Add salt into whites and mix well.
  4. Heat olive oil in a pan and sear the avocado halves, flesh side down, for 15-20 seconds until a little golden.
  5. Flip them over and share the egg whites into each. Don’t worry if they overflow since it forms a nice white plate on which avocado halves are set.
  6. Put the lid on, turn the heat down and cook for 5-10 minutes until the whites inside avocados are set.
  7. Slide the yolks into the avocados over the whites. Put the lid on and cook for 2-3 minutes. A thin white cover may appear on the yolks. This will disappear, and the yolks will look shiny and yellow after about a minute.

    Serve and enjoy!
