 It has the texture of a hard-boiled egg, but you don’t have to deal with peeling the shell off of it. They literally slide right out of the pan. These would be the perfect on-the-go egg sandwich for a quick AM breakfast. I paired mine with leftover roasted sweet potato quinoa, topped with some feta for a meatless, high protein lunch.

I ate this dish cold, but in all honesty, I never reheat anything. I had one of the eggs hot, right out of the oven and it was pretty tasty, but I prefer them cold.

Can you cook avocados in the oven?

Absolutely. This recipe involves baking an avocado with an egg inside of the crater left by the removal of the pit.

Leave the skin on the avocado during the baking to provide support. Once the avocado is removed and cooled you can remove the skin, although this dish is easier eaten with the skin on. Just use it as nature’s bowl.

The top of the avocado might brown just slightly from the baking, but it’s nothing to worry about and has no impact on the taste or texture. We’re not baking the avocado long enough to blacken it.

How long do you bake an egg in an avocado?

This recipe calls for baking an egg in an avocado at 425 degrees for 12-15 minutes. I recommend giving the baking tray a slight shake to check how set the eggs are. They will be slightly wobbly in the center with the runny yolk, but the whites should be set around the yolk.

You might even see a slightly hardened yolk cap on the top, which is normal. Don’t fear, once you poke through that or remove with a fork the yolk will still be runny underneath.
