I wouldn't cook the avocado in the egg. Avocado goes on the egg once it comes out of the pan. Season avocado with a bit of salt and pepper and you're good, it shouldn't need anything else.

Hi I mean that I put the whole egg into the avocado (In a pan) is it still not a good thing to do?

Cooking avocados makes them bitter.

There seems to be a great deal of divergent opinions on cooking avocados.
Seein' as how I have never tried to cook avocados.....I am gonna be forced to give it a try. I have seen several websites that show various methods, some with the peel left on, some without the peel. I am wondering if the peeling contributes the bitter quality.
At any rate, I am off the grocery to fetch some avocados. I will let y'all know the results.

When my tortilla soup is served, I scatter cubes of avocado on each serving, but they don't cook, just get warm from the soup.

Hi Fiona yes I think that when you add the avo as it is all goes fine
I love to add to a mashed avo hard-egg with some salt and black pepper that comes out very good but really wondered if there can be a good cooked version too

I googled "cook an egg inside an avacado" and I got a long list of recipes, mostly for baking them, but there was one for frying them and I think it is the same recipe as in the video that Flowersa posted. Maybe it's done more just for presentation, but that would be a terrible waste of an avacado.
