Are eggs and avocado a healthy breakfast?

Absolutely. Both ingredients are PERFECT for helping to kick those sugar cravings and keep on track with your weight loss goals by maintaining balance to your macros.

Eggs are loaded with protein while avocados pack that extra punch of healthy fat. (not to mention they’re an awesome “superfood” as well)

How long should I cook these baked avocado boats?

The bake time will be about 25 minutes to get them cooked perfectly. Depending on how well you like your egg yoke cooked, you may shave off a couple of minutes.

I suggest keeping a close eye on it as different ovens can cook at slightly different temperatures and speeds.

What toppings can I add to these stuffed avocado egg boats?

Have I mentioned that I think that toppings are the best part of almost any food? I love them and I love how they can change the entire taste and flavor of any dish.

Make certain that whatever toppings you choose, they’re part of the low carb diet (especially if you’re doing keto) and lifestyle that you’re wanting to live.

Crumbled turkey sausage or turkey bacon is always a good choice as is any type of shredded cheese as well. If you’re a fan of onions, chop those up and add or you can even add a topping of fresh jalapeno peppers, too.

Bottom line, there are so many ways to top baked avocado boats with bacon! Comment below and tell me what you top your boats with.

How do you know when an avocado is ripe?

Such an important question. How many times have you been to the store and bought an avocado only to find out that it’s not ripe at all? So frustrating, right?

The good news is there are a few ways that you can check the ripeness of an avocado easily.

The first is to give it the squeeze test. If you can squeeze and have it feel a tad bit squishy, there’s a very high chance that it’s ripe and ready to eat.

If it’s hard as a rock, it’s not ripe nor ready to cut into.

The other way to check and see if an avocado is ripe is to pick off the end of the stem. If it’s green underneath, it means that it still needs a little bit of time to ripen.

If it’s brown under the stem then it’s a good sign that it’s ripe and ready to eat.

How to make baked avocados

The truth of the matter is that this is a really simple recipe. It’s so simple that it might just become a regular in your meal planning rotation.

And if you’re worried about messing this up, don’t be. Not only is it easy to make but it’s also very forgiving as well.

ingredients for avocado egg boats
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. To keep the avocados halves from sticking to the baking dish when baking, line with parchment paper.
  2. Cut the avocados in half lengthwise and take out the pits. Use a spoon to take out a bit of the flesh around the pit area to create a bigger space for the egg. (Save that extra avocado to use for something else later or top the avocado boats once done baking)
  3. Crack the egg into a bowl and put it into the avocado half. Put the avocado half on the baking sheet and do this for all until complete. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Put the halves into the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes.
  5. Take out of oven and top with shredded cheese and crispy bacon pieces. Garnish with chopped chives or other toppings and enjoy.

Tips for perfecting these avocado eggs

One of the biggest tips to keep in mind is that you want to use an avocado that is bigger than the egg. This will create a perfect “bowl” for the egg and won’t allow it to spill over when baking.

Also, crack one egg at a time into a bowl first before adding it to the avocado. This will make it easier and prevent any spillage.

If you like the cheese melted and slightly browned, add the cheese to avocados at the end of baking and turn on the broiler until melted and browned. You may need to play around with the timing based on how well done you like the baked eggs.

It’s possible to use only egg whites if that is something you would prefer.

To keep the avocado from rolling on its side, use a muffin tin to balance avocados on.

Last but not least, if you’re worried about the avocado boats tipping and spilling in the oven, use a muffin pan instead and have them sitting on that. This will hold them in place and make it way less messy.

I have a feeling these baked avocado boats with bacon will be one of your favorite low carb breakfast dishes!
