This Paleo Spicy Egg Breakfast with Avocado recipe is a perfect breakfast for a celebratory brunch, a relaxing morning while camping, or a busy morning meal before a big day of traveling.
I love avocados! I especially love pairing them with spicy food. They tame the spice down while adding a layer of freshness to the dish.
When exercising, such as hiking or swimming, you can quickly work up an appetite. With healthy fats and protein, this is a great meal to start you on the right track before heading out!
What Ingredients Will I Need for this Paleo Spicy Egg Breakfast?
Olive Oil, Bell Peppers, and Onion
While oil keeps the peppers from sticking, the peppers and onion add color, flavor, fiber, and nutrients to the dish. You are welcome to increase or decrease how many you use. You can also switch up the colors of the peppers for varying flavors.
If you want a sweeter breakfast dish, try using yellow onions. For a sharper onion flavor, chose white.
Eggs and (Dairy-Free) Milk
We like to use almond milk, but you are welcome to pick the milk that works best with your dietary needs. Mixing the milk with the eggs ahead of time allows them to mesh well before being incorporated into the skillet.
The spices bring the flavor to the scrambled egg dish. And there’s quite a bit of flavor here! Feel free to increase or decrease the amounts based on your preferred level of kick. This one is probably a medium level of spiciness. But the avocado tames it down, so it tastes more mild.
Avocado- Perfect Addition to this Paleo Egg Breakfast
Avocado tops the dish beautifully! It serves both an artistic and culinary purpose. Not only does it look beautiful, it also tames down the spices and adds a pleasant freshness to the dish. You are welcome to go without, if you prefer. My husband is not a fan of avocado, but I just eat all of his slices! Yum!

Now on to the recipe!
Spicy Paleo Egg Breakfast with Avocado
- 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1/2 green pepper, diced
- 1/2 red pepper, diced
- 1 small yellow onion, diced
- 6 eggs
- ¼ cup almond milk
- 1 tsp dried cumin
- 1 tsp dried garlic
- ½ tsp salt
- dash ground red pepper
- ½ avocado, peeled and sliced
- Heat the olive oil in a pan on med-high heat in a medium size skillet.
- Add the diced peppers and onions and cook until soft (about 5 minutes).
- Meanwhile use a small bowl and whisk or fork to whisk the eggs with milk.
- Add the cumin, garlic, salt, and red pepper to the egg mixture.
- Once the peppers are cooked, add the egg mixture and begin cooking, using a spatula to regularly turn the eggs and bring the eggs to the middle of the pan regularly to prevent burning on the sides of the pan. Cook until eggs are fully cooked.
- Peel and slice the avocado and place over the eggs before serving.
Using and Cleaning a Cast Iron Pan
Note: This picture was taken while camping over a fire where we used a cast iron pan. Cast iron pans are perfect to use while cooking over the fire.
However, it’s important to note that eggs are one of the hardest things to clean out of a cast iron pan. The cleaning process is different than it is with regular pans. Firstly, soap should not be used. Secondly, it is usually best to add water to your hot pan immediately after removing what you’ve cooked. Let the hot water pull the stuck-on food off. But make sure the water does not stay in the pan for longer than a few minutes. Cleaning cast iron pans is difficult enough that you may want to use a regular pan for this if you are not cooking over a fire.
