Arepa with egg, hogao and aguacate

I like experimenting with different types of toppings for my arepas and this time I used fried egg, hogao and avocado. What a wonderful combination of ingredients. I just loved it!

Arepas are one of my favorites and there are many recipes for them on my site. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Buen provecho!



(4 servings)

  • 4 cooked arepas
  • 4 sunny side up eggs
  • 1 avocado, peeled and diced
  • 2 cups hogao
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped

Oh that looks very good! I just learned about arepas and I’d love to try them. There are a lot of Colombian shops and restaurants in colonia Roma in Mexico City and I’ll look for the ingredients to make them. Yum!

I cannot tell you how much I enjoy your posts! I am a gringa married to an opita living in the Middle East. I love to cook and am forever trying to recreate the amazing food we eat at my in-laws home in Neiva. Your recipes are a huge hit with my husband!! I left your latest arepa post open to show my husband (I love your photos!!) and he made it for me the next day for breakfast! It was amazing. Have you thought about putting your work together in a cookbook? I have found that books with Colombian cuisine are lacking – and the ones that I have bought produce nothing like your recipes.

Hola Erika,
Thank you for your comment and I am planning to publish a cookbook!


14 Chris February 19, 2012 at 4:12 PM

I think this might be the best breakfast ever!

I lived in Cartegena for 2 years when I was younger and ate arepas all the time, they were my favorite treat. This site is great for me, it reminds me of things to cook that I enjoyed during the time I spent there. Thanks for sharing!
