Quick Fix Breakfast: Avocado Toast
Updated: Mar 28
Good Day Starshine!
I know, it’s been a while since I’ve written a blog post. But, hey, I will admit that I was extremely lazy in the writing department these past couple of weeks. Every time I’d open my blog to write, nothing would come to mind! I couldn’t find a creative word to say!
Today, finally, I got the urge to write about my staple breakfast that I loveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.
It is Avocado Toast (and friends).
When we have a ton of Hass Avocados, I love to eat them as part of my breakfast!
The recipe is at the end of this post. Don’t forget to print it!
Avocados are such a superfood in the fruit department. I had to learn to love them plain, because the texture just makes me feel all too wrong. Slowly, though, I’ve learned to appreciate the various uses of it.
Did you know that avocados have more potassium than bananas? Neither did I! It’s also a great source of fiber, calcium, all the vitamins you can think of, iron, and that’s just naming a few!
In the mornings, I don’t like to have too much sweet stuff (pancakes, waffles, syrup, fruits, sweetened lattes, smoothies) because I’ve learned that I start to crave sweets throughout the day afterwards. Meh.
Anywho, this recipe calls for:
2 Thai Peppers
1 Roma Tomato
Crumbled Raw Milk Cheddar
Bread (I used Papa’s Organic w/Flax Seeds)
Prep Time: 10 Minutes
Cook Time: 15 Minutes
Get a skillet and place desired bacon strips to cook. Allow about 10 minutes on med-high heat.
While bacon is cooking, start off by slicing you avocado in half, and slicing the meat (without cutting the shell) into squared sections.
Take a fork and mash the avocado (while still in it’s shell) with a fork.
Slice the tomatoes in cubes or julienne style, and set aside.
Grab 2 thai peppers (or jalepenos) and slice in desired style, and set aside.
Place your piece of bread in the toaster to desired darkness.
Take off bacon and set aside to drain excess grease. (I save bacon grease in a jar for later use)
Frying the Eggs
Pour oil (I used EVOO) into skillet, just enough to coat.
Crack both eggs into the pan until white part of egg begins to solidify.
Flip the egg and let cook until desired readiness (I cooked mine over-medium)
Creating a Masterpiece
Your toast should be finished at this point. So grab a plate and start placing the ingredients!
First, take a spoon and scoop out the mashed avocado and spread on the toasted bread. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Then sprinkle the chopped tomato, Thai peppers, and cheese over the toast.
Next, place the bacon and eggs on the plate.
(If i’m feeling fancy, I’ll crumble the bacon and sprinkle it over the toast, and I’d set the eggs on top of the bread. But today ain’t that day).
And VOILA, you have a delicious (and nutritious) breakfast!
