Avocado Toast Sunny-Side Up
There are so many reasons why I love this avocado on multi-grain toast with a sunny-side-up egg recipe. Firstly, it’s incredibly easy and quick to prepare, making it perfect for busy mornings or a speedy lunch. The creamy texture of the avocado pairs wonderfully with the crunch of the toasted multi-grain bread, creating a delightful contrast in textures. The sunny-side-up egg not only adds a visually appealing aspect but also introduces a rich, velvety component when the yolk breaks and melds with the other ingredients. Nutritionally, it’s a powerhouse, balancing healthy fats, proteins, and complex carbs. Plus, it’s incredibly versatile – you can jazz it up with various toppings and seasonings to suit your taste. It’s a simple, wholesome, and delicious dish that never fails to satisfy.
1 ripe avocado
2 slices of multi-grain bread
Salt and pepper, to taste
Optional garnishes: red pepper flakes, chopped cilantro, or a squeeze of lemon juice, we love a splash of sriracha sauce on for a spicy kick.
Prepare the Avocado:
Cut the avocado in half and remove the pit.
Scoop out the avocado into a bowl. Mash it with a fork until it’s creamy but still has some texture.
Season the mashed avocado with salt and pepper. You can also add a squeeze of lemon juice for a bit of tanginess.
Toast the Bread:
Toast the multi-grain bread slices to your preferred level of crispiness.
Cook the Eggs:
Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat. You can add a little butter or oil if desired.
Crack the eggs into the skillet. Cook until the whites are firmly set but the yolks are still runny, about 2 to 3 minutes.
Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.
Assemble the Toast:
Spread the mashed avocado evenly on each slice of toasted bread.
Carefully place a sunny-side-up egg on top of each avocado toast.
Sprinkle some red pepper flakes for a bit of heat or add chopped cilantro for a fresh, herby flavor.
Serve immediately and enjoy your delicious and healthy avocado toast with a su
