Baked Avocado Cups (Paleo, Whole30 + Keto)

Here’s a fresh and simple breakfast idea – bake your eggs in avocado cups and top them with some bits of bacon.

Really, can you go wrong with that combination?

These baked avocado cups are an easy and filling breakfast recipe. You can pop them in the oven in the morning and they are ready to go in about 15 minutes. We love them because the healthy fat from the avocado and protein from the egg gives you lasting energy and sticks with you throughout the morning. You won’t be feeling hungry in an hour if you fill up on these in the morning.

Plus, there are endless toppings you could add to these for different flavors: diced tomatoes, sliced green onions, bacon, red onions, basil, cilantro, salsa, a dash of hot sauce, etc.

We topped one of ours with bacon, basil and tomato and the other with bacon, red onion, tomato, cilantro and hot sauce – delicious.

Ingredients

For the avocado cups:

  • 2 avocados (one per person)
  • 4 eggs (2 per avocado)
  • Salt & pepper

For the toppings:

  • 3 strips of bacon - diced and cooked (like bacon bits)
  • 1 tomato - diced
  • 3 fresh basil leaves - chopped
  • 1/8 red onion - diced
  • 1 tbsp fresh cilantro - diced
  • 1 tbsp hot sauce or salsa

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 450 degrees
  • Cut your avocado in half and remove the pit. Scoop out some of the extra flesh to make more room for the egg.
  • Place your avocado half into a ramekin or small baking dish to keep it from tipping over. Crack one egg into each avocado half and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Place in the oven for 15 minutes, or until egg is desired doneness. For our oven, 15 minutes gave us the perfectly cooked egg where the whites were cooked and he yolk was still runny.
  • If you are using bacon as a topping, now is the time to cook up your diced bacon to have it ready when the eggs are done.
  • Top with desired toppings while still hot and enjoy!
