Baked Egg in an Avacado

Are you the kind of morning person that likes the warm creamy and smoky taste of baked avacodo with a gooey golden sunrise egg in the center?

If so, then your in for a treat!

1 egg (Beaten or not. Your choice)


Chopped Chili

1 Large avacado

Chopped Scallion

1 ramekin

1 baking sheet (to set ramekin on)

Pie weights or course salt or a bag of dried beans

Hot sauce

Salt & Pepper


Preheated oven at 450°

First you need to cut your avacodo in half and remove the seed. Next you need to scoop out about 1 tablespoon of the inside of one half to make room for your egg.

Now put your avacado half in a ramikin. Since you want your avacado half to stay level, nestle it on a pie weight or inside a shallow layer of dried beans or a good layer of course salt.

For the next step, crack your egg into a shallow bowl so you can easily slide it into the avacado half. Here is where you can get creative. Before pouring your egg into the center, lightly dab your choice of condiment inside the avacado where the egg is going. I would use hot sauce and/or some pesto.

Finally and carefully, pour in your egg and then season with salt and pepper. Dollup a little pesto, diced scallion and diced chili on top.

Now put that puppy in the oven for 10 to 12 minutes depending how done you want your egg of course.

After it is done , top with more of your condiment and fresh cilantro.

May your meal be one of magic!


    Alright. While I was in the grocery store this vibrantly chatty 16 year old was having a minor panic episode because they did not have Sukiyaki sauce. I personally didn’t know “Sukiyaki sauce” existed. She needed it for her cooking class group project in high school and she was just going to die if she could not find it so she could help make Sukiyaki. I just looked at her father put his hand over his eyes, in what I could only assume was a gathering up of another deep reserve of patients.

    Heaven help her group members dealing with her spastic energy and unwillingness to get the job done right.

    So on that note. Here is the recipe to make the fabled dish I fear she will never get to fully appreciate.

    4 tbsp Soy Sauce

    4 tbsp Sugar

    2 tbsp sake or mirin

    1 tbsp olive oil

    1 pound cut beef

    1 bunch shiitake mushrooms

    1 bunch enoki mushrooms

    8oz  itokonnyaku noodles

    Half of a cabbage cut two finger widths wide

    14oz tofu cut one finger width wide

    2 scallions (long onions) cut diagonally

    Heat your frying pan to medium high. Once it is hot, put in the cut beef and sear it. Add the soy sauce, sugar, and sake when the meat’s color starts to turn.

    Once you do that, flip it a few times and then add the rest of the ingredients. Cook everything at this point between 10 and 15 minutes.

    Taste the mixture and adjust the flavor to your liking by adding either soy sauce and/or sugar.

    Prepare your belly for some serious yum yums! And also pray for that poor girl and her cooking class grades.

    On a side note. If you are feeling like you want to punch up your meal in a traditional fashion, dip your ingredients in an egg wash when you are putting them in the pan.
