Egg in an Avocado

*This recipe was taken from

It’s so ridiculously simple to make, and so full of good fats and protein, you’ll wonder how you never thought of it yourself.


  • 1 avocado
  • 2 eggs
  • salt and pepper
  • half of a lime

How To Make It:

  1. Preheat your oven to 450F.
  2. Cut each of the avocados in half and take out the pit. Scrape out just enough avocado until you can fit a cracked egg in there (about 1 1/2 tablespoons). Place each half cut-side up on a baking sheet.
  3. Squeeze some lime juice over the avocado and sprinkle with salt, then crack a whole pastured egg into the space in each avocado. Sprinkle each egg with freshly-ground black pepper.
  4. Bake until the whites are white but the yolk is still runny, between 10 and 12 minutes. If you like your yolks harder, cook them for longer
