There’s nothing better than a delicious breakfast that is healthy, easy to prepare and comes complete with its own bowl. Many people on Stradbroke Island are lucky enough to have huge avocado trees in their backyard, which makes it easy to source the biggest, tastiest fruit just perfect for this recipe.

Serves 4


  • 4 ripe avocados
  • 4 rashers bacon, cooked
  • 30g soft, fresh goats cheese
  • 8 eggs
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

  • Crack each egg into a small bowl, then spoon yolks and however much white each avocado will hold into each hollow avocado.
  • Sprinkle salt and pepper on top.
