Avocado Breakfast Egg Cups

There was a day that I walked into the grocery store and was craving avocados. I found 4 for $5 and knew it was my lucky day. I decided I would make four different things with the avocados. I found a few easy recipes but this was the one that I actually got some pictures of.

I found a super easy recipe with the help of google that allowed me to use what I already had. The site that popped up was Wellness Mama. This recipe sounded straight to the point. I tweaked some of the amounts I needed since it was only me eating it.

It required 2 avocados and 4 eggs. I downsized to 1 avocado and 2 eggs. I also added toppings of my choice. I really wish I had sour cream but such is life.

Next I cut the avocado in half and had to pit it. I actually had to google how to properly cut and pit and avocado the first time I ever ate one. The pit can be dangerous to get out so be careful.

Make sure you cut a really big hole because my egg yolk was falling out and spilling out. It was difficult. LOL! You also have to find the perfect cooking wear to put it in the stove so that the yolk or avocado doesn’t fall over.

When it came out it looked pretty good. I might have had in for a little too long. They say to tweak the time depending on how hot your oven gets.

I added my salt and pepper. Then I added salsa on top of this. I thought that the overall taste was bland. I put in work for this and it didn’t taste as great as I wanted. Maybe I’ll try it again with other toppings. Has anyone else tried this recipe before?

  1. I’ve tried but I really came to realize that I hate the taste of hot avocado. It was pretty bland for me. I think salting it a bit before putting the egg in would have helped. I’d much rather make fluffy eggs, and put the avocado on top with some parm cheese. Then again, I feel like cados have been super bland lately anyway.
