A few years ago I became infatuated with the idea of baking eggs in individual serving dishes, and I really enjoyed Baked Eggs with Mushrooms and Parmesan and Baked Eggs with Asparagus and Parmesan, so if the idea of avocado baked with eggs and Feta doesn't appeal to you, you might like one of those earlier ones. But we absolutely loved this combination when we tested the recipe!
We just ate the eggs and avocado like you see it, which would be perfect if you're wanting this for a low-carb meal. This is a quick breakfast that can be on the table in about 30 minutes, but you do need to take time to heat the dishes while the eggs and avocado come to room temperature if you want those perfectly cooked but still soft eggs like you see in these photos. And if you don't have little gratin dishes like this that can go in the oven, just use a casserole dish and cook it all together, which might need one or two minutes longer to cook.
I'm going to add this to my earlier round-up of The BEST Low-Carb Breakfasts with Avocado, so if you're an avocado fan you might like some of those ideas as well! And if you don't care if this breakfast is low in carbs, some whole wheat toast dipped into the eggs would definitely be good.
Break each egg into an individual ramekin and let eggs and avocados come to room temperature for 15 minutes while you heat the gratin dishes (or a large casserole dish) in a preheated 400F/200C oven. After 15 minutes, peel the avocado and cut each half into six slices. Spray gratin dishes with non-stick spray and arrange avocados in each dish.
VERY CAREFULLY tip eggs into each dish on top of the avocado, then sprinkle with crumbled Feta cheese. Bake 12-15 minutes, or until whites are set and yolks are done to your liking.
Serve hot. This is good with Green Tabasco Sauce to add at the table.
Low-Carb Baked Eggs with Avocado and Feta
(Makes two servings; recipe created by Kalyn and Jake and inspired by Baked Eggs with Mushrooms and Parmesan and Baked Eggs with Asparagus and Parmesan.)
1 large avocado
olive oil or non-stick spray for gratin dishes
2-3 T crumbled Feta Cheese
salt and fresh-ground black pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400C/200C.
Break eggs into individual ramekins and let the eggs and avocado come to room temperature for 15 minutes. When the oven comes to temperature, put the gratin dishes on a baking sheet and heat them in the oven for 10 minutes.
After 15 minutes, peel the avocado and cut each half into 6 slices. Remove gratin dishes from the oven and spray with olive oil or non-stick spray. Arrange the sliced avocados in each dish and VERY CAREFULLY tip two eggs into each dish. Sprinkle with crumbled Feta and season to taste with salt and fresh-ground black pepper. (Remember that Feta is salty; we didn't use much salt.)
Bake 12-15 minutes, or until the whites are set and the egg yolks are done to your liking. Serve hot This is great with Green Tabasco Sauce to add at the table. It can be served with whole wheat toast for a low-glycemic breakfast if you don't mind having a few more carbs.
Low-Carb Diet / Low-Glycemic Diet / South Beach Diet Suggestions:
If you eat this without toast like we did, it's a perfect low-carb, Keto, or South Beach Diet Phase One breakfast that's really a treat. With whole wheat toast this is still a low-glycemic breakfast, suitable for Phase Two of the South Beach Diet.
