Avocado toast has become popular as a breakfast or snack. You can find avocado toast on Instagram and restaurant menus alike, but it’s quick and easy to make at home.

Step the classic recipe up a notch by adding an extra punch of protein with scrambled eggs. The combination of fiber, protein, and healthy fats is filling, satisfying, and provides lots of nutrition to start your day.

Avocados are a great source of potassium, fiber, heart-healthy monounsaturated fat,​ and folate, while eggs provide protein and micronutrients like choline, B vitamins, and vitamin D. A sprinkle of green onions and freshly cracked pepper top it all off.

Ingredients

  • 1 slice whole grain sourdough bread
  • ½ small avocado
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • olive oil spray
  • 1 tablespoon green onions, chopped
  • freshly cracked black pepper

Preparation

  1. Toast sourdough bread in the toaster or in a small skillet over medium heat.

  2. Smash avocado with a fork. Spread over toast.

  3. Whisk together egg and milk. Spray oil in a small nonstick skillet and heat over low heat. Pour eggs into the pan, and cook, stirring with a spatula until set.

  4. Place eggs with avocado and sprinkle with green onion and pepper.

Variations and Substitutions

  • Use gluten-free bread if necessary.
  • Choose a different egg preparation. Top toast with a fried or poached egg instead of scrambled if you prefer.​
  • Add fresh herbs. Top the eggs with dill, chives, parsley, or basil.

Tip

  • Serve with fresh fruit for an easy breakfast. Sliced strawberries, berries, or apples make a great choice.
