Going to make baked avocado with eggs? You’ll need:

  • 1 avocado
  • 2 small eggs
  • Fresh chives, chopped
  • Salt and black pepper


1. Line a baking tray with tin foil and preheat the grill.

2. Cut the avocado into two, and take out the stone.

3. Crack an egg into the space left by the stone in each half of the avocado. 

4. Sprinkle with chives, and season to taste, then grill for five to six minutes until the eggs are cooked.

Serving suggestion

Fry tomatoes, courgettes and button mushrooms and serve them along with the avocados. We love them with a dash of chili oil or fresh, chopped chili, too. A crumble of feta? Yup, we'd add that too.
