This is a recipe for the classic Avocado Toast with a twist. My version is my Breakfast Avocado Toast with Sunny Side Up Egg. Everybody loves a good Avocado Toast and this one will not disappoint! If you know my style of cooking, you know I hate bland food. This Avocado Toast is seasoned to perfection with all the right toppings!
I personally made mine with Gluten Free Sourdough bread, but you can make this with any sliced bread that you prefer! I personally love sourdough bread and feel it provides a good texture when toasted. You want to make sure that the bread has a good density to it so that when you add all your toppings, it can sustain the weight of it. You also want it to be toasted enough where you get that nice crunch when you bite into it! Okay, okay. Let’s just get to it, alright?!
Breakfast Avocado Toast with Sunny Side Up Egg
Before we get started, I want to tell you guys to play around with your seasonings. I tend to change mine from day to day just to mix it up. This is one variation of seasonings I tend to use the most often. However, if you don’t like the seasonings I use, feel free to keep it out of the recipe. You can also substitute your own seasonings. To be honest, the natural flavors in this light dish really allow you to put little to no seasonings, if you prefer. But, here is my take on it with a little twist. Let me know your variations!
1 Slice of Sourdough Bread (I use Schar’s Gluten-Free Sourdough bread https://www.schaer.com/en-us/p/deli-style-bread)
1 Tomato (Pick your favorite here. I had some fresh Roma tomatoes on hand so that’s what I used.)
1/2 Haas Avocado (You can use any avocado you want. It’s easier for me to gauge how much by using a Haas avocado.)
Mayonnaise (You can use regular mayonnaise or Vegan. They both end up yummy.)
Crushed Red Chili Peppers
Pam Non-stick Cooking Spray
Prepare your toppings first. Slice a tomato into thin, round slices. Dice your avocado. I personally like my avocado diced. Some people prefer to mush it. You can do either one. However, if you plan on mushing your avocado, you’re going to want that to be your first topping, after you spread the mayonnaise. Then, all your toppings would go on after that.
Toast your bread. I personally like mine to be a nice medium brown. It gives the avocado toast a nice crunch and really holds the mayonnaise well without becoming soggy. I hate soggy toast!
Spread a layer of mayonnaise on top of your toasted bread.
Take 2 slices of tomato and place them side by side on your toast.
Time to Fry your Egg
Spray Pam into your Non-stick Sauté or Frying Pan. Set heat on Medium. Crack your egg into the pan. When I cook my eggs, I normally like the egg to be a bit runny, but not too much. I cook it just enough to let it ooze out slowly when you cut into it. I achieve this by not flipping the egg. As long as you cook the egg on medium for a bit, you will be able to achieve the entire egg cooking well. The bonus is that the egg yolk will cook as well, but won’t be too runny. I don’t like to tell people how long to cook the egg for because every stove is different.
Patience and Practice when cooking Sunny Side Up Eggs, Lol.
This may take some practice. I ruined a lot of eggs when I first started to cook eggs to be aesthetically more pleasing. Either way, don’t worry your yolk breaks or doesn’t come out perfect. The egg will taste amazing on this avocado toast regardless. Trust me.
While the egg starts cooking, sprinkle salt and pepper on top. Then, take your garlic powder and lightly sprinkle some over the egg being careful not too sprinkle too much. I like to do just a nice mist or layer of it. I then sprinkle some parsley on top of the egg. Then I take the crushed red pepper and sprinkle some on top of the egg as well.
Place the fried egg on top of the tomatoes, making sure to center it on top.
Take your diced avocado and put as much as you want all over your eggs.
