  • ¼ cup diced red onion
  • 2 TB lime juice
  • 1 ripe but firm avocado
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 plum tomato seeded and diced
  • 2 TB minced jalapeño
  • 1 TB chopped cilantro
  • ¼ tsp cumin
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • fresh cracked black pepper


  • Toss together onion and lime juice and let sit for 15 minutes to overnight. 
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a small baking dish with foil. 
  • Halve and pit avocado and scoop out 3 TB from each half, leaving a small bowl (with ~4 TB remaining in each half). Cut a thin slice across the bottom so halve sits flat. Season avocado with a pinch of salt and pepper. 
  • Crack an egg on top of each half, slowly pouring whites so they don’t spill over. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until whites are set and yolk is done to your liking. 
  • While eggs are baking, combine pickled onion, tomato, jalapeño, cilantro, cumin, and salt in a small bowl. Top each avocado half with salsa and serve.
