Grilled Breakfast… Avacado Egg Cups

This recipe is so simple, yet so delicious. The nice thing about it is you can cook this breakfast on ANY grill or smoker. Big Green Egg, Weber Kettle or Smokey Mountain, Good One Cookers, any of them will work fine.

We’re seeing more and more breakfast recipes with the avocado and egg combo, and this recipe makes it possible to enjoy the two together, grilled. The avocado is given an extra dose of flavor from barbecue seasoning, and then serves as a protective, and delicious, shell for the egg to cook in.

Add chopped onion, or any other grilled condiment that will make your breakfast sing with flavor. For your BBQ rub, I suggest a quality brisket rub such as Plowboy’s Bovine Bold, Slab’s Wow Your Cow, or Cook Shack’s Brisket Rub.



  • 1 ripe avocado
  • Pinch of barbecue rub
  • 2 eggs
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 red jalapeño, finely diced (optional)
  • 1 tomato, chopped


Preheat the grill to high heat, about 450 degrees.

Run a knife blade around the circumference of the pit of the avocado lengthwise and remove the pit. Scoop out enough of the green flesh to make room for an egg. Coat the inside of each avocado with a pinch of the barbecue seasoning. Crack an egg into each half.

Place the avocado halves on the grill for about 5 minutes, or until the egg whites are firm and the yolk is still runny. Remove from the grill, plate and top with a little seasoning, diced pepper, and tomato.
