This is my version of the perfect avocado toast. Simple, quick, and not too many ingredients, it can be whipped up in about 7 minutes. I absolutely love avocados, and am in a constant search for the perfect avocado toast in the city. But for some reason, most avocado toasts I've ordered are at least $10 (??!!), this one can cost approximately $2. It's a no-brainer.
Avocado Egg Toast
Ingredients: makes 1 avocado egg toast
- 1 slice of multigrain toast (preferably a thin slice of toast, that is a bit crusty. (The more seeds and grains, the better)
- 1 large egg 1/2 of a small avocado (or a large hass avocado if you're feeling crazy)
- salt and pepper to taste
- a pinch of red pepper flakes
Directions: Begin by slicing the avocado in half, and set aside the half that contains the seed for another use. Scoop out the other half with a large spoon, and then slice in very thin strips. (Some avocado toasts used smashed avocado like a guacamole, but I prefer mine sliced thinly.) Set avocado aside.
Put toast in toaster.
Heat a small pan with a thin slice of butter over medium-low heat. Make sure butter is completely melted and the pan is warm, about a couple of minutes. Crack the egg into the pan, and then cover it with a glass lid. Let cook slowly for about 5 minutes, or until whites are completely cooked but yolk is still runny. Remove from pan.
Remove toast from toaster, and spread a little bit of butter on one side (or omit for a healthier version). Top with avocado slices, and the fried egg on top. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, and a pinch of red pepper flakes. Grab your fork, poke the yoke in the middle, and watch it run all over the toast like lava oozing out of a volcano. Enjoy!
