Course: Main Dish
Servings: 4


  • 2 avocados, medium
  • 4 eggs, medium or large size vegan options below
  • 4 pieces bacon, cooked or cooked broccoli, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 2 tsp lemon juice

  • pinch black pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 400⁰F
  • Lightly grease a baking dish with coconut oil or avocado oil
  • Cut the avocados into halves and remove their pits. From each avocado’s center, scoop out a little bit of avocado flesh to make the hole big enough to hold your filling, about 1 Tablespoon
  • Place the avocado halves into the baking dish, taking care that they are setting level.
  • Carefully crack an egg into each half, or stuff with your favorite lightly cooked vegetables.
  • Sprinkle each half with the salt, pepper, and herbs.
  • Bake for 15-18 minutes or until the egg whites have turned white and the yolk is still wiggly.
  • Remove from the oven and top with crumbled bacon or additional diced cooked vegetables.
  • Drizzle with olive oil and lemon juice. Enjoy!
