Expert Tips

  • You can cook the eggs until the whites are set and the center is runny for the perfect sunny-side-up egg. Be sure to keep an eye on them while they’re baking!
  • You can serve Avocado Egg Bake with a side of fresh fruit or toast for a well-balanced meal. They are a great on-the-go breakfast, too. 
  • If you want to fit more eggs into the avocado center, you can scoop out some of the avocado flesh to make a bigger well in the center of the avocado. That flesh can be used on avocado toast!

FAQs:

Can I use regular bacon instead of turkey bacon?

Yes, but keep in mind that regular bacon is higher in fat and calories than turkey bacon.

Can I add cheese to this recipe?

Yes, shredded cheddar or crumbled feta would be a delicious addition. You can explore with toppings: hot sauce, salsa, or other cheeses.

Can I make this recipe ahead of time?

Baked Avocado Egg with Bacon is best served right away. To save time, you can prep the ingredients ahead of time and simply assemble them before cooking. Keep in mind that avocado begins to brown when exposed to air, so it’s best to slice it right before baking.
