how to make avocado toast and eggs

  • Toast the bread: Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Lay the bread slices and toast them until crisp and golden brown on both sides. Set aside. 
    Alternatively, you can toast the bread in a toaster, or bake in the preheated oven at 375F for 4-6 minutes.
  • Next, cook the eggs: To the same preheated pan, heat the oil on medium-low heat. Crack in the eggs, cook them for about 6-8 minutes, or until the whites are fully set and the yolk is cooked to your favorite doneness. 
  • Prepare the avocado: Meanwhile, to a shallow plate, mash the avocado with salt, pepper, and lemon juice.
  • Assemble the toast: To assemble the toast, spread a spoonful of mashed avocado over the toast.

Recipe notes and tips

  • The serving size is one toast topped with one fried egg.
  • Use any bread of choice. We used whole-grain bread.
  • Do not use hard and unripe avocados. Go for a ripe but firm avocado.
  • Any oil of choice will work.
  • Pickled onions are optional but make for a great addition. You may use capers instead.
  • Get creative with your toppings. Avocado toast pairs so well with many different toppinds like feta cheese, honey, strawberries, tomatoes, sauteed mushrooms, and so on.

frequently asked questions

Is avocado toast vegan?

This avocado egg with toast is not vegan due to the addition of eggs. To make your avocado eggs vegan, skip the eggs and top with vegan-friendly toppings.

How do you know if an avocado is good and ready?

The best way to check if an avocado is ready is to press gently on them with your fingers. If they are soft but firm to the touch, they are perfect and ready. If the avocado is too hard, then it’s not ripe yet. Alternatively, if the avocado feels too soft and mushy to the touch, it’s over-ripe and not good.

Should you refrigerate avocados?

It all depends. If the avocado is too firm and unripe, do not store it in the fridge. Leave on the kitchen counter for a few days until it ripes. Once the avocado is starting to ripen, you may store it in the fridge if you aren’t ready to eat it to preserve its shelf life.
