Many people love mashed avocado on toast; the buttery richness of avocado goes nicely with a good bread. You can add a little spice or keep it relatively plain, but why not add an egg? These two were made to go together. The creamy yolk mixed with the avocado and crunchy toast make for a delicious and protein packed breakfast.

Like most egg dishes, this is quick, versatile, and relatively inexpensive to make. Whip some up for lunch or dinner with a side salad and you have a full meal. Eggs and avocado are both full of nutritional punch to keep you going!

The chipolte chili powder listed in the recipe can be hard to find and is entirely optional, but if you have some on hand it's hard to beat  the smoky, spicy kick it adds to the dish. Use whatever chili powder you have on hand, and if you want heat sprinkle in a tiny bit of cayenne. This dish is entirely customizable-add bacon if you wish, or top the egg with a bit more veggies. The hardest part about making it is trying not to eat both yourself.

Avocado and egg make the perfect pair on a piece of whole grain toast

2 slices artisan whole grain bread

2 large eggs

1/2 fresh lime

salt and pepper to taste

sprinkle of chipolte chili powder (optional)

 


Directions

1. Peel and seed the avocado. Mash it up until smooth in a bowl. Zest and the squeeze the lime over top. Add salt and pepper to taste.

2. Toast your bread. There's no need to butter it, the avocado spread will be enough. Let it cool before you slather each piece with half of the avocado spread.

3. In a frypan over medium heat, make a sunny side up or over easy egg. Whatever you like will do. The point is a softly set yolk or runny one is very nice with this.

4. Set the cooked egg on top of your avocado toast and enjoy.
