I hate to bring you guys a non-seasonal post right in the middle of a prime growing season, but you’ve got to serve something substantial alongside all of those garden veggies, right? Plates of vegetables are glorious, but working hard in this heat requires some solid pairings to go with them.

When I caught wind of this idea, I knew it was just the thing I wanted to couple with the summer greens currently flourishing outside. These avocado bowls are adorable. They are rather simple too, allowing them to shine in their appearance as well as with the other toppings you select to spruce them up.

I chose to go with a Mexican theme because when I think of avocado, the maracas start shaking and guacamole automatically comes to mind. Season to taste, and feel free to add any other ingredients that inspire you, like lime juice or paprika. Think of it as a breakfast taco wrapped up in an avocado. That’s a tortilla shell substitute worthy of a summer fiesta.

Baked Egg in Avocado


  • -Avocado
  • -Egg
  • -Chili Powder
  • -Cilantro
  • -Salsa
  • -Shredded cheese
  • -Salt and pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 425 F. Place a cast iron pan in oven and heat.
  2. Cut avocado in half. Depending upon how big the pit is in your avocado, you may want to scoop a little bit of the flesh out of the middle and set aside. Line area where the pit was removed with cilantro and then crack egg into the middle. Sprinkle with chili powder, salt, and pepper.
  3. Remove cast iron pan from oven and place egg inside. Bake about 10 minutes, or until egg reaches desired consistency. When egg looks about done, sprinkle with cheese and cook until melted. Serve alongside salsa, fresh cilantro, and hot sauce, if desired.
