Baked Eggs with Avocado and Feta are a delicious quick breakfast option for avocado fans, and Feta Cheese is super low in carbs! And personally I think baked eggs and avocado sound perfect for a low-carb breakfast!
A few years ago I became infatuated with the idea of baking eggs in individual serving dishes, and I really enjoyed Baked Eggs with Mushrooms and Parmesan and Baked Eggs with Asparagus and Parmesan, so if the idea of baked egg and avocado doesn’t appeal to you, you might like one of those earlier ones.
But we absolutely loved these Baked Eggs with Avocado and Feta when we tested the recipe! This is a quick breakfast that can be on the table in about 30 minutes, but you do need to take time to heat the dishes while the eggs and avocado come to room temperature if you want those perfectly cooked but still soft eggs like you see in these photos.
And if you don’t have little gratin dishes like this that can go in the oven, just use a casserole dish and cook it all together, which might need one or two minutes longer to cook.
We just ate the eggs and avocado like you see it, which would be perfect for a low-carb meal. And if you don’t care if this breakfast has a few carbs, some whole wheat toast dipped into the eggs would definitely be good. Or keep the carbs low and dip your eggs with some toasted Savory Almond Flour Bread!
What ingredients do you need for this recipe?
(This is only a list of ingredients; please scroll down for complete printable recipe. Or if you use the JUMP TO RECIPE link at the top of the page, it will take you directly to the complete recipe.)
- Olive Oil (affiliate link) or non-stick spray for gratin dishes

What other cheese could you use if you don’t want Feta?
If you’re not a fan of Feta, a crumbly Mexican cheese like Cotija or Queso Fresca would be amazing with the eggs and avocado. Or just use something you have on hand like Mozzarella or Parmesan cheese if you don’t want to buy a special cheese for this recipe.
Want more recipes with Avocado and Feta?
I’m such a fan of the flavor combination of creamy avocado and tangy Feta cheese that I’m always surprised I don’t see it more often. If you like those flavors together like I do, you might like Cucumber Salad with Avocado and Feta, Feta Cheese and Avocado Frittata, or Lemony Shrimp Salad with Avocado, Heart of Palm, and Feta!

Low-Carb Diet / Low-Glycemic Diet / South Beach Diet Suggestions:
If you eat the Baked Eggs with Avocado and Feta without toast like we did (or with toast made with Savory Almond Flour Bread), it’s a perfect low-carb, Keto, or original South Beach Diet Phase One breakfast that’s really a treat. With whole wheat toast this is still a low-glycemic breakfast, suitable for Phase Two of the South Beach Diet.
