Why You’ll Love This Recipe

This air fryer avocado baked egg is incredibly easy to make, and a great way to start your morning right. The avocado itself gets super creamy and delicious, while the egg replaces the pit for the perfect finish.

You can make it as simple or as complex as you want! Season with simple salt and pepper, or load it up with bacon, salsa, or anything else you might like. I like hot sauce, cilantro, and a side of toast for dipping into my eggs.

The cooking time varies slightly depending on how set you want your eggs to be, but it generally takes under 15 minutes for your avocado eggs to be ready to eat. That’s easy enough for a weekday morning!

What You’ll Need: Ingredients

ingredients to make avocado eggs in the air fryer
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 2 eggs 
  • Salt and pepper to taste 

Variations and Tips

  • I find that medium eggs work best, but large is fine as well. You just may have some extra whites, or need to scoop out some pulp to fit them
  • Feel free to add some cheese: cheddar and feta are great options
  • Spice things up with hot sauce or sweet chili sauce on top
  • Add crumbled bacon, dried beef, or diced ham
  • Top with a squeeze of lime juice, chopped cilantro, or salsa
  • Use everything bagel seasoning or your favorite seasoning blend as a topper (I also enjoy garlic powder and paprika)

Recipe FAQs

Can Avocado Go in the Air Fryer?

Yes, avocado can go in the air fryer. It may be placed in halved, to warm and soften the filling, giving it a creamer texture.

You may also bread it and air fry until crispy to create avocado fries.

Are Eggs and Avocado Good Together?

Yes, eggs and avocado are good together. In fact, it’s one of the most recommended pairings for both ingredients.

You’ll see eggs and avocado paired together in a variety of dishes, from baked eggs to avocado toast, and even in sushi.

How Long Do You Air Fry Avocado Eggs?

You typically air fry avocado eggs between 6-10 minutes, depending how you like the yolks of your egg. Less time yields a runnier yolk.

The time will also vary slightly based on your specific air fryer.

Recipe Pro Tips

  • I do not preheat my air fryer for this recipe. If you do, reduce cooking time by a minute to start
  • For hard set yolks, add an additional 2-3 minutes to cooking time
  • You may line your air fryer baskets with parchment paper for easier cleanup if desired, as it is common for some egg to run over during cooking. You may also use a spoon to deepen the pit well to help better contain your eggs if they’re shallow
  • If you can’t get your avocados to sit flat, you can cut a thin piece of the bottom off to create a flat surface. Just don’t cut entirely through the avocado flesh or your egg will spill out!

Storage and Reheating

  • You can store any leftover avocado eggs in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. If you do so, I highly recommend coating the avocado in lemon or lime juice to prevent it from turning brown
  • While you can technically reheat avocado baked eggs, they are best fresh. The egg will overcook and be rubbery upon reheat. If you want to, though, air fry at 350°F for about 3 minutes to reheat

Final Thoughts

This avocado egg air fryer recipe is a quick and easy way to enjoy a baked egg in an avocado bowl in the morning. It’s incredibly easy to make, and cooks in 10 minutes or less, depending how done you’d like your egg.

I love that it’s such a customizable recipe! You can enjoy them as-is for a keto and paleo friendly option, but you can also add toppings and various sides to make it your own.

It’s a perfect option for breakfast (even on those busy weekday mornings). However, I find them perfect for the brunch spread and a light lunch when paired with something else like a soup or salad.
