How to Make Easy, 3-Ingredient Avocado Egg Cups

by Tiffany Lin ; Updated May 11, 2018

Breakfast fiends, rejoice! This fun recipe showcases eggs baked directly in hollowed-out avocado cups. And it’s super easy, too. The ingredients list includes just three ingredients.

One serving of the avocado cups contains 216 calories; 16.73 grams total fat; 13.62 grams protein; and 6.24 grams total carbohydrates.

For a recipe that serves six, you’ll need three whole avocados. Highly nutritious, the avocado is loaded with heart-healthy monounsaturated fatty acids and blood pressure-reducing potassium.

Begin by cutting the avocados in half and scooping out the seeds. You’ll also want to remove some of the avocado, too. This leaves room to add the eggs.

Next, crack one egg into each avocado half. Bake at 425 degrees for about 15 minutes. Prefer eggs that are more cooked? Simply increase the baking time.

Top off the cups with cooked, uncured turkey bacon, and your dish is complete.

Take a moment to marvel at your clean kitchen -- seriously, this breakfast is incredibly mess-free -- and then dive right in!
