Recipe: Avocado & Egg Toast

Avocado toast is currently considered the trendiest food among health hipsters and instagrammers. I LOVE avocado! But I have always thought this was a little bit of a funny "healthy breakfast" because avocado is pretty fatty (even though it's healthy fats), and bread isn't necessarily good for you either. So I decided to dress up this trendy food a little. It makes a dynamite breakfast and a great lunch. You can also add some shredded chicken on it for extra protein and it becomes a slam dunk dinner. Recipe makes 4 portions, to serve 4 people (or 2 people can have 2 slices each) The pictures below also have cheese on them, but my husband and I agreed that you couldn't taste the cheese, and that the cheese wasn't needed or missed and were just wasted calories.


1 large avocado
1 Tbs sour cream
2 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
2 tsp Mccormick's Salad Supreme Seasoning
4 slices of bread
2 stalks of green onion
1 roma tomato
4 Eggs


  1. cut the avocado into chunks and put it in a food processor. 
  2. add the sour cream, salt, pepper and Mccormick's seasoning into the food processor. Blend until preferred consistency. 
  3. once the spread is done place it in the fridge while you finish preparations. 
  4.  poach your four eggs. If you do not know how to poach an egg read below for instructions, tips and tricks!
  5. Set aside each egg on a plate to rest. (all four can share one large plate, just be sure there isn't a paper towel on it)
  6. Put your bread in the toaster.
  7. While bread toasts slice your roma tomatoes and chop your green onions. 
  8. When your toast is done spread a layer of the avocado spread on it. 
  9. Then top that with a sprinkling of your green onions and then your tomatoes. 
  10. Place your poached egg on top the toast and dig in!

Egg Poaching Tips and Tricks:

To poach an egg you  need to get a small pot and fill it half way to three quarters of the way with water. Put it on the stove on high and let it boil. Crack and egg into a shallow measuring cup. Use a spoon to stir the water in the pot until you get a "vortext" like cone happening. Gently lower the egg at the center of the "vortext" and pour it out into the water. Turn the heat down to medium. You can poach it for about 4 minutes. Then use a slotted spoon to scoop it up and lower it onto the plate.

4 minutes is recommended by a lot of websites, but it will depend on how runny you like your yolk. I learned from watching the TV Show Master Chef that singing Amazing Grace 3 times is perfect! I think that works for the perfect balance of not to firm, not to runny. However you can adjust the time or verses base don your own needs.

Here is a YouTube video that will show you how to do it! The actual tutorial starts about 1 minute and 30 seconds in. Also note that most people recommend you add vinegar into the water, if you watch the full video he will too. I do not like vinegar, and I do not like the flavor it gives the egg, so I omit it. It does not effect the way the egg cooks.

How do you like your avocado toast? If you try my recipe, let me know how you liked it or tweaked it to make it your own! My husband loves to add shredded chicken or bacon under the egg! There are so many ways to make this your own.
