Breakfast: Avocado and Egg Toast

IMG_1459Normally, throughout the week the wife makes us a smoothie for breakfast.  You can check out the recipe for that here.  However, sometimes you need a break from the smoothies and bust out something different.

The wife got the idea for these things a while ago from another blog she reads.  I wasn’t sure how avocado and a hard boiled egg would go together, but after the first bite I was sold.  It was delicious.  It is a breakfast that I could eat just about every day of the week.

The nice thing about the breakfast is that it’s super simple to put together as well.  Especially, since the wife figured out a really easy way to make the hardboiled eggs.  After looking online, we now just put the eggs into a muffin tin, and pop them into the oven.  She looks up the directions each time, but it looks like a majority of the web throws them into the oven at 325 for 30 minutes.  After they come out, put them in and ice bath…and done.  They’ve come out perfect every time.

Once the eggs are done it’s really just a matter of assembling everything.  To try and save on calories we skip the toast and use some Thomas Plain Bagel Thins.  Throw those things in the toaster for a few minutes and get them nice and crisp.  On top of the toast/bagel thin spread half of an avocado.  We just mash the avocado up with a fork in a bowl to allow it to spread easily, but still have some chunks left in it.

One of the kitchen tools that comes in handy here is the egg slicer.  It makes it easy to cut the egg up in even slices.  Take your cut up egg and place it all over the toast/bagel.  Once you have the egg and avocado on, it’s time to season.  Go ahead and put a liberal helping of salt and pepper on top.  The kicker here are the red pepper flakes.  It gives the toast/bagel a bit of a bite and heat that really works well.

I can’t tell you how happy this breakfast makes me.  It’s satisfying, healthy, and delicious.  With the ability to make a bunch of eggs at once, you can easily have this a couple of mornings in a row.  Remember…keep the pit of the avocado in any extra you may have to keep it from turning brown.  This way when you go back for seconds or the next day, your avocado isn’t brown.

Now excuse me while I make sure we have the stuff we need for this in the house…because I have a craving again.
