About this recipe: Try these clever avocado baked eggs topped with bacon and chives for a weekend breakfast or brunch.
You may have to carve out a little bit of the avocado so the egg can completely fit in the hole.
After a few changes I really like this. One is I placed the ramekins in a pan of water while cooking, cooking time will likely need to be increased if you use refrigerated ingredients, and I didn't carve out the avocado. I cracked the egg into the avocado and used a thin knife to cut the white and let it run down in the ramekin. I also seasoned the entire avocado half, inside and out with seasoned salt. I added some chopped precooked turkey sausage. And sprinkled a little finely diced onion over them, a few slivers of Parmesan cheese, and topped with a little paprika for color. What's not to like? Mmmmmm. - 03 Aug 2013 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Made this recipe today according to instructions. First off, don't use x-tra large eggs. This was all I had so had to remove some of the egg white in order not to spill over. (And yes, I carved out more space in the avacado). There is no way this dish is ready after 15 mins of baking. Unless you want to eat runny egg whites. I baked mine for 35 mins. The final end product just was not that tasty. It may work better to add onions and cilantro ie to avacado and bake and simply add a fresh cooked egg on top after baking. - 25 May 2013 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
So, another variation... I cut out an egg sized hole out of the avocado (I actually traced the egg with a toothpick), and scooped it out down to the skin (being careful not to pierce the skin). I then used a mortar to grind together 1/2tsp. each of garlic granules, onion granules, ground ginger, sage powder, and 1/4tsp. each of cumin and Australian flake salt. I sprinkled this mixture over the entire avocado, and ground some black pepper on top too. I then added about 1/4-1/2tsp. olive oil to the cavity in the avocado. I scrambled the eggs in a jar (you just put the lid on and shake) then I poured this into the hole; on top of the oil, and seasoning. I then put sliced mushrooms across the top to keep the egg in the avocado while cooking. The oil made the egg rise to about where the other half would have been height wise when done. Once out of the oven I added grated Swiss cheese, and chopped peppers (I used sarano, but any would be good) on top. I then cut each half in half (effectively quartering the avocado), and took the peel off before serving. So yummy! - 02 Apr 2014 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
