Avocado egg toast is truly as simple as the name. 3 main ingredients, a little bit of spices, and about 5 minutes is all you need for this easy and delicious breakfast.
Don’t get me wrong, I love a full blown breakfast or brunch. I’m talking about French toast with berries and whipped cream, or Eggs Benedict, with a side of delicious bacon and mimosas. At home though, I usually don’t feel like whipping that up in the morning so I go for what’s easy. Insert avocado toast!
The best thing about avocado toast is that you can alter it to however your heart desires. Add an egg, add some meat, load it up with veggies, whatever you want to do is allowed!
I usually like mine with a fried egg on top and change up the spices on it regularly. If you haven’t tried Trader Joe’s Everything But the Bagel seasoning, you NEED to. It pairs so well with so many things, but I love to use it on my eggs.
Steps to getting this avocado egg toast done in an efficient and fast way.
- Get out all of your ingredients at once
- Crack that egg and start cooking it to your liking and pop the bread in the toaster
- While everything is cooking, make avocado mash
Everything will be done by the time you get your mash together!
Avocado Egg Toast
- 1 slice sourdough bread
- 1 tsp avocado oil
- 1 egg
- red pepper flakes , optional
- ½ avocado , mashed
- 1 Tbsp lime juice
- dash garlic powder
- salt and pepper to taste
- Heat avocado oil in frying pan and cook egg, seasoned with salt, pepper and red pepper flakes, to your liking
- Meanwhile, pop bread in the toaster
- Slice avocado in half, scoop it out from the flesh and mash it with a fork until it’s mostly mashed with a few chunks
- Add lime juice, pepper, and garlic powder to avocado mash, mix together, and set aside
- Once everything is cooked, spread avocado mash on toast and top with cooked egg
Since you’re only using one half of an avocado, the best way to store the other half (choose the half with the pit still in it!) is to spread lime juice all over the inside, coating generously. Store this in a plastic container or wrap tightly with plastic wrap, making sure it’s touching the surface. I’ve been able to keep an avocado this way for 5 days without it turning brown and gross.
