Baked Avocado Egg

10 min


  • 1ripe avocado 2 medium free-range eggs Salt & Pepper


Preheat the oven to 220C/200C Fan/Gas 7.
Slice the avocado in half lengthwise and twist to separate the halves. Chop a knife into the avocado stone (like an axe) and lever it out of the avocado.
If the stone is small, you may need a teaspoon to scoop out a bit of a bigger hole. A tablespoon-size hole works best.
Scrunch up some tin foil to hold the avocado halves in place on a baking tray, or wedge them into a small tin so they don't move.
Crack one of the eggs into a small bowl, then carefully pour it into one half of the avocado and season with salt and pepper. Repeat with the other half, then bake for 12-15 minutes until the egg white is cooked through.
