aluminum foil
2 avocados 340 g
4 eggs size large
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g
ground pepper to taste [optional]
1 pinch cayenne pepper 0.1 g
2 tsp chives, fresh, finely chopped [optional] 2 g


  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C /425°F. Lay a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. Cut the avocados in half lengthwise and remove the stones. Using a spoon, scoop out about one tablespoon of avocado flesh, or more, as needed, creating a small well in the center of each avocado. Arrange the avocados on the baking sheet and fold the foil around them to prevent them from tipping over. As an alternative, you may place each avocado in a ramekin to avoid tipping. Gently crack one egg, and slide it into the well, keeping the yolk intact. Repeat with remaining eggs. Season with salt, pepper, and Cayenne pepper to taste.
  3. Place into the center of the oven and bake until the egg whites have set but the yolks are still runny, about 15-18 min.
  4. Sprinkle with chopped chives and serve.
