I added a dash of Tony’s Creole Seasoning for heat, but that is optional.

First, preheat your oven to 350F.

Cook the bacon, but not too much — you want it to be bendable.

I made circles with the bacon just for looks — you don’t have to do this.

If your avocados are small like these, scoop out a little bit to make room for the egg.

Generously season them with salt and pepper.

I used an upside down mini muffin pan to balance the avocados.

Spray non-stick cooking spray on the pan so it will be easier to clean when the egg whites drip. I learned that one the hard way.

Cut the bacon slices in half and shimmy them in-between the avocado skin and pulp.

Next, crack an egg into a small bowl:

And then gently pour the egg into the avocado where the pit once was.

Yes, you can just crack the egg into the avocado but I usually have eggshell shrapnel when I crack an egg.

This way I can dig the shell out of the bowl instead of having it disappear into the avocado.

Season the egg with salt & pepper and a dash of Tony’s (or something similar) if you want a little heat.

Bake the cups at 350F for about 20 minutes — more or less depending on how you like your eggs.
