Avocado Toast with Egg

avocadotoast1

There are very few meals that couldn’t be improved by the addition of a fried egg- I’ve been known to add eggs to pasta, pizza, and even a few salads. It’s the perfect way to add protein to an otherwise vegetarian meal. Not only is this recipe quick and easy to make on a weekday morning instead of the usual oatmeal and fruit, but it really kick starts your day!

directions:
Toast slices of bread. Cut the avocado in half lengthwise, twist to separate, and remove & discard the pit. Scoop out the avocado flesh. Add it to a small bowl, and mash with a fork. Stir in the lemon juice and season with salt and pepper. Set aside.

Cook eggs sunnyside up. Spread the avocado mixture on toast. Top each piece of toast with an egg, and sprinkle with salt and fresh ground pepper, if desired.
