A quick and easy low-carb, gluten-free breakfast full of healthy fat and flavor! This will fill you up until lunch! Serve with toast points if you don't mind a few carbs and want to fully enjoy the runny yolks!
Serves: 6
  • 3 avocados, halved and seeded
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 6 large eggs
  • 2 ounces shard cheddar cheese, shredded
  • finely chopped cilantro
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. There are a few options to keep the avocados upright and level while baking: you can make little boats of aluminum foil to cradle them on a baking sheet, or use a muffin tin where the wells are filled almost to the top with balls of aluminum foil (the edges of the well will then stabilize the avocados but the foil will prevent them from sinking too far.) Spray your setup with cooking spray.
  2. Using a spoon, scoop out about two tablespoons of avocado flesh, or more, as needed, creating a small well in the center of each avocado. Drizzle the avocados with olive oil. Mix together the chili powder, salt, cumin, and pepper in a small bowl and sprinkle it evenly over the avocados.
  3. Gently crack 1 egg, and slide it into the avocado well, keeping the yolk intact. Some of the egg white may slide down into the well of your cupcake tin or onto your baking sheet — no worries. That’s why we sprayed them: for easy cleanup later! Repeat with remaining eggs. Top the avocados with cheese.
  4. Place into oven and bake until the egg whites have set but the yolks are still runny, about 15-18 minutes. Serve immediately, garnished with cilantro.

    A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. John 13:34
    Love your sweet spirit, Julie.

    Julie, I’ve been following you for years, before Mike, before the move, before America lost her way. Bless you for speaking His truth thru this powerful media. Jesus commands ALL who are weary and burdened to come to Him and He’ll provide rest. Our challenge is to reach out to those weary and burdened and love them into Jesus’s safe, capable, and ever-lasting arms. And that is EVERYONE. Everyone, spots and all. Thank you for pointing us to the One who doesn’t disappoint.

    And the recipe looks great, too. ~Leslie. (Austin)

    I’ve been a reader (or more like photo-admirer) for awhile and I never realized you had such a strong faith. I love it and I’m glad you shared some truths!

    Hi Julie. I agree with you on everything. I’d only say that if I don’t know a person whose panhandling,or if someone has an addiction,I would not give them money. I could/ would be perpetuating the problem,and funding his addiction,especially if there are children involved,I would be perpetuating child abuse,thinking I’m doing some religious good deed. I’d give food,if I knew it was an actual need. Discernment. Love your blog and recopies. Bless you !

    Well-said, Julie, as usual. I’m Jewish so I almost didn’t click in to read this story but my love of your recipes prevailed. I started reading and your words are incredibly moving. No matter what one’s faith, I love hearing how belief in a higher power should help people be better, do better for others. Please keep spreading your love and recipes and wonderful writing.

    As an atheist who has followed you from the very start, I’m relieved to hear that maybe there’s a push from more Christians to demonstrate that not all Christians are the hateful dreck Americans (and other nationalities, but to a lesser extent) are accustomed to seeing .
    I still don’t understand why it the need to be moral and kind has to be spelled out in a book, and not just known in the heart. But if the results are the same, there won’t be much complaint.
    My grandpa was an avocado grower and I really miss those days spent in the grove. Everything was so big–the trees, the spiders, the old tractor and milkshed equipment…I absolutely loved the solitude and exploration.

    Eggs look amazing, I have to try them.

    Jesus…not so much, to be honest. Religion is just dividing us.

      I don’t think anything’s as simple as that. But you’re welcome to your opinion of course!

    Beautifully said and I agree. It is hard to find Jesus in the world, that is why we must spread HIS word and let HIS light shine through us. For without God, we have nothing. So, we must never give up or give in to the hatred. You are doing exactly what we should be…..God’s Blessings to you….always.
