Did you think that avocados are just for guacamole and toast? Think again!

Did you know you can cook with avocados? This is a perfect keto breakfast recipe to try when cooking an avocado for the first time.

This avocado bake recipe will provide you a fresh new way to prepare this superfood. We’ve all heard of (and probably tried) avocado toast for breakfast.

This is a great alternative when you’re tired of that dish and ready for a more keto-friendly version.

This is also a great gluten-free option.

Avocados are a great addition to your diet. They are low carb and full of the healthy fats our body needs.

You have a very delicious meal option when you add the egg and tasty seasonings. It’s also easy to prepare.

In fact, it takes less than 20 minutes!

Are Eggs and Avocado Good for You?

Believe it or not, avocados are a fruit. But unlike other fruits, there are very low in sugar and carbohydrates.

They are full of nutrients. Avocados contain 20 different vitamins and minerals. These vitamins and minerals include folate and vitamins K, C, B5, B6, and E.

One 3.5 serving of avocado is about 160 calories and 2 grams of protein.

One serving does have 9 grams of carbs, but 7 of those carbs are fiber. Therefore, there are only 2 net carbs per serving of avocado.

This is great while you’re on a Keto diet.

Eggs also contain the healthy high amounts of protein needed while following a keto diet. One egg contains a total of 6 grams of protein.

Eggs are low carb and have less than 100 calories per egg.

Avocado and eggs paired together make the perfect keto meal and snack. There are no heavy carbs involved in this recipe, yet you’ll still end up feeling completely satisfied.

How to Make Avocado Egg Bake

 

This recipe is going to make two servings. One half of an avocado is one serving.

First of all, you will want to preheat the oven to 425F.

Then, do make sure that your avocados are ripe and not too hard. They won’t be usable or taste good if you cut into them before they ripen.

Afterward, cut the avocado in half and remove the pit. You will want to scoop out a little bit of the avocado around the area where the pit was.

This is going to make room for the eggs.

Carefully crack one egg into each of the avocado halves.

Pour the eggs one at a time into a small bowl first if you’re a little worried about eggshells. This way, you can easily remove them without having to dig out of the avocado.

It’s ok if the eggs spill out of the hole after you pour. You’ll still be able to enjoy the whole egg as everything will bake together nicely.

Gently move the eggs into a small baking dish. Try to find the smallest dish that will fit both the avocados.

This will help prevent the avocados from tipping over. Even better, if you have baking beans, you can lay those on the bottom of the dish and nest the avocados right on top of the beans.

This will surely prevent them from tipping over and spilling.

Season with the salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning once the eggs are nestled in the baking dish.

Now, place the baking dish in the oven and make sure to bake for 12-15 minutes or until the eggs are completely cooked.

Once the eggs are cooked, remove them from the baking dish carefully.

Garnish with salsa and sliced scallions.

Make sure that you are using a salsa that is sugar-free. There are lots of great options, like this one.
