“I saw a picture of this and can't wait for my avocado trees to produce this year. This may become a regular breakfast. Here in Florida the avocados are large and buttery. One avocado will yield 2 thick slices. If you use the Haas grenades, you, likely will need 2 avocados.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat a non-stick skillet to medium low heat.
  2. Lightly spray with oil.
  3. Slice an avocado with the skin ON lengthwise, forming 1 or 2 thick slice in the middle.
  4. You will have some leftover avocado pieces – so, Make some bonus guacamole if you want! Guacamole for Breakfast? Why NOT?.
  5. Remove the seed and use a small cookie cutter to make a hole in the center of your thick slice big enough for your egg.
  6. Place the avocado slice in the pan. Crack your egg into the center of the hole.
  7. Cover and cook for a minute or two, until the egg is as you like it.
  8. Season with salt and pepper and serve.
  9. Alternatively you can leave the skin on the avocado and place the egg(s) in the hole and bake at 350°F This takes much longer, about 30+ minutes. However, if you were feeding a crowd would be easier.
