Avocado Egg

April 10, 2012

Do you ever have a recipe that just takes you back to a certain moment in time?  A memory, or feeling?  This recipe transports me to our honeymoon, in Mexico.  We stayed at this wonderful resort that had fabulous cuisine.  Each morning we’d eagerly awake to go eat breakfast, eggs Benedict, waffles, or these creamy delicious avocado eggs.  I chose the avocado egg everyday.

It’s simply delicious, filling, creamy, and really highlights the flavors of both the egg and avocado.  You must try this yourself, it’s so hard to explain the flavor, but very simple to make at home.  Four simple ingredients.  Make it today, and go lay by the nearest beach available.  Or pool, sprinkler, or even kiddie pool.

Ingredients: 1 Large Hass avocado, 2-3 eggs, seasoned salt, butter

Take your perfectly ripe Hass avocado, and slice it all the way around the pitt.

Twist and pull open

Take your knife and pop it into the pit and pull out.

Then take each half of the avocado and slice a good 1/2 inch piece all the way through.

Lay flat and cut around the pit, make the hole larger to hold the egg.

Remove the peel.

And place in a buttered pan over medium heat.

Crack each egg in carefully.

Sprinkle on the seasoned salt, if you don’t have any, salt and pepper is fine.  Cook about 2-3 minutes.

Then very carefully flip over.

Add a little more salt.

And cook another 2-3 minutes, until the yolk is cooked to perfection.  We like runny yolks, but if you prefer a fully cooked yolk cook about 3 minutes.

Serve with fresh fruit and add a dash of your favorite hot sauce (optional).

A simple delicious breakfast that will stick with you. And make you long for the beach and a Mai Tai. 

Oh sorry that’s just me.

How beautiful! Looks delicious, but how do you keep the avocado from turning brown?


Sweet Pea Reply:

@Lesa @Edesia’s Notebook, Lesa, I had no problem with the avocado turning brown, do you mean from the cooking process or exposure to the air? Either way it cooks quickly and we eat it right away so not much chance of it turning brown on us.


Lesa @Edesia's Notebook Reply:

I guess I just assumed that since exposure to air makes them turn brown, exposure to heat would make them brown even faster. I’ve never actually “cooked” with avocados before. They look so beautiful; I was just wondering if you rubbed them with lemon juice or anything. Great recipe!

OOOH that looks so good! Runny yolk and avocado taste like heaven together. I shall try this sometime 🙂

Looks amazing! My husband doesn’t like avocados, but I might have to make this for myself.

That has got to be the prettiest egg I’ve ever seen!!! What a delicious and healthy meal!

Pinning it!!!

Oh, that looks good! I have to try it!


Amber April 12, 2012 at 8:28 pm

Oh my goodness! I love avocado and I love eggs so this is a great recipe! I will add this to my things to make list, but I do believe this will be added to the top! Yummy!

I LOVE this presentation and have seen it on Pinterest a few time but your version is the most lovely I’ve seen. I need to get over my angst about *cooked* avocado and give this a try — it would be perfectly low-carb 🙂

[…] Then about an hour later I eat breakfast.  My favorite bird’s nest (on whole wheat bread) or avocado egg.  Maybe some fresh berries to go with it. For lunch I will have a salad, with various toppings, […]
