Eggs in bacon-wrapped avocado nests

Recipe from: 18 July 2013

Ingredients 6
Servings 4
Time 00:20


  • 6
    slices of streaky bacon
  • 1
    avocado - ripe but firm
  • 2
    small eggs
  • salt and pepper
  • cherry tomatoes - if desired
  • toasts to serve


Preheat the oven to 200ºC.

Lay the bacon out on a baking tray in 2 rows of 3, overlapping each slice to make 2 rectangles.

Halve the avocado, remove the pip and carefully peel each half.

Hollow out a little of the middle if the pip hole seems too small to fit a small egg, also slice a small segment off the bottom of the avocado
halves so that they sit without wobbling.

Place each in the middle of a rectangle of bacon.

Crack an egg into the pip-whole of each.

Season with salt and pepper.

Wrap the avocado halves in the overhanging bacon.

Scatter cherry tomatoes into the tray, drizzle over a little olive oil and bake in the oven for 25 minutes.

Serve on toasts.
