I just have to share my newest breakfast obsession with you guys.

It’s not even really a recipe, per say…but it is oh SO good and you definitely need to make it.  Simple food really is the best, isn’t it?

The premise is a simple one, lightly toasted bread (or broiled if I’m at home and too lazy to get the toaster out) is topped with avocado slices and thinly sliced cheese (my favorite is pepper jack) and then broiled until the cheese is golden brown. Then top the toast with preferably, a runny egg. De.Vour.

If I’m at work, I’ll bring a fully cooked egg and then put the components together once I’m ready for breakfast. (But there’s no real plate, golden brown cheese, or runny egg.) It’s still good and definitely still satisfying, but not quite the same.

This toast also makes a delicious lunch or simple dinner if you just can’t fathom such a savory meal first thing in the morning. Anytime of the day, just make sure you eat this soon!

    That looks incredible! I often scramble my avocado into my egg but I love this idea!

    Simple is always best, and this toast looks like a perfect example of that!

    I am starting a new job next week where I get to eat breakfast again! (Ie, not waking up at 3:30am for work anymore). I’m already dreaming about this combo.

    This is one of my absolute favorite things to eat, and it’s just so simple! I don’t typically add cheese to mine, but I do add hummus and tomato. Yum!

    I do this exact combination as well (sometimes add tomato) and love it!

    If I had seen this earlier (I’m seriously falling behind on the internet the past two weeks), I would have had this for dinner.
    I’m a fan just from the look of it!

    One of my favorite meals ever! Eggs are my go-to for lunch… I bring a couple to work, crack ‘em, pop ‘em in the micro and then sandwich ‘em up :)

      I’m curious, how do you cook them in the microwave? In a mug? I need details. :)

          No spray or anything? I’m totally trying this next week.

            Spray helps and makes it easier to clean the pyrex! Let me know how you like it!

    Simple, quick, and healthy. I’m always looking for something I can create quickly. Definitely beats grabbing something unhealthy while you’re on the go.

    I eat mashed up avocado on Ezekial 4:9 toast at least once a week. It always hits the spot. I love it with eggs, but sometimes making an egg is too ambitious. :)

    That looks mouth watering and delicious! Fits my more less vegetarian lifestyle. Im with Michelle Ezekial bread sounds like a good bread to go with that…
