Y’all know how much I love heating up avocados, … avocados take on an enhanced smoky flavor, and a creamier, buttery texture when they’re heated up, and it’s worth the wait, y’all.  Seriously, y’all, if you haven’t heated up your avocados, what are you waiting for?

Baking an avocado with a bit of hot sauce and egg… oh. my. word.

This is such an easy dish to make, and requires just a few ingredients that you already have:  your favorite hot sauce, eggs, avocados, salt and pepper.  You can add bacon and tortillas, if that’s how you roll.

If you like your yolks a little runnier, you’ll cook them a couple minutes less, if you don’t like your yolk intact, you can whisk the eggs before pouring them into the avocado basket.

  • top with salt and pepper
  • place the avocado eggs in a basket into a baking dish and bake for around 15 minutes (less, if you like runnier yolks)

  1. I’ve always wanted to try avocados like this but haven’t yet. I’ll be trying your recipe soon! These sound absolutely incredible! Perfect healthy breakfast to start your day! Pinned!

  2. This looks delicious!! Eggs and avocado are such a delicious combination and when bacon is involved too??? Sign me up!

  3. I just made this for dinner. I’m mostly vegetarian, but also keto so I subbed the bacon for some cheddar and Parmesan, and it was awesome! I was going to try to wing something like this myself, but wasn’t even sure if it would work. And I wouldn’t have thought to add the hot sauce. That was absolutely clutch, and this is now my favorite keto food.
