Not too many people don’t like avocado, eggs and bacon and this is a super easy breakfast, brunch or anytime meal that is filling and can be very paleo / low carb (depending on the type of bread you use for the toast).

Once you smear this concoction onto that piece of toast, your mouth and tummy will thank you greatly.


  • 1 large avocado (medium may work, depending on the size of egg you use)
  • 2 small chicken eggs or quail eggs
  • 1 or more slices of bacon (preferably applewood smoked bacon)
  • 2 slices of toast from whatever kind of bread you enjoy (optional)
  • salt, to taste
  • fresh cracked black pepper, to taste


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Cook the bacon ahead of time, either in the oven or in a frying pan until crispy.
  • Slice the avocado in half, discarding the seed.
  • Using a small ramekin, cast iron skillet or other oven-safe cooking device,  place the avocados in such a way that they’re being propped-up so they don’t tip over while cooking.
  • Now put an egg into the remaining seed cavity in each half (try not to break the yoke during this process).
  • Gently place into the oven and bake for approximately 15 minutes.  Using “convection mode” is not recommended here as it tends to over-cook the yolk too quickly
  • Once you get the desired doneness you’re looking for, remove and season with the salt and pepper, then top with the crumbled bacon.

  • okay Duane, the hubby had me pick him up an avocado today. He just finished making this. His words, tell Duane, this is BOSS AWESOME! He loved it! Thanks for the new recipe!

  • Hi Duane,
    An interesting recipe I’ll definitely have to try. Here in Chile where I reside, simplicity is best. Avocado (or palta as it’s called here) and bread is THE breakfast food. No need to fuss or muss, just mush it up – or you can add a sprinkle of olive oil and salt to taste- then spread it on warm fresh bread. Breakfast is served. If you want to fancy it up, just toss on a slice of goat cheese and call it done.
