Scale

Ingredients

  • 4 slices rustic bread
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • 12 avocados, mashed or sliced
  • 2 vine-ripe tomatoes, thickly sliced
  • 4 large eggs
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon Italian parsley, chopped
  • Optional garnish: red pepper flakes

Instructions

  1. Toast bread to desired crispness. (I used crispness level 4.) Rub it with a clove of garlic. Drizzle the toast with olive oil. Spread mashed avocado over the surface.
  2. Add olive oil to a skillet over medium heat. When the oil shimmers, add the tomato slices. Sear only one side, undisturbed until charred, for about 3 minutes. Transfer the tomatoes to the avocado toast.
  3. Add oil to the pan. Cracks eggs into the skillet. Cook undisturbed for 3 minutes or until the whites are set. Transfer an egg to each piece of toast.
  4. Garnish as desired with salt and pepper, Italian parsley, and red pepper flakes.

Notes

EXPERT TIPS FOR THIS RECIPE

  • HOW TO MAKE AVOCADO TOAST HEALTHIER: Start with whole-grain bread. Instead of buttering your toast, drizzle olive oil over the surface. Add purple onions, or a nutrient-dense topping like alfalfa sprouts. Add a slice of your favorite cheese.
  • HOW TO SELECT THE PERFECT AVOCADO: Use Hass avocados. If they’re green, they’re not ready to use. Look for avocados with a deep purple skin and no bruising. When gently squeezed they should not be rock hard or mushy. Ripe avocados will gently yield to the touch!
  • MORE TOPPING IDEAS: For more texture, add a sprinkling of poppy seeds, sunflower seeds, or chia seeds. For a bit of spice, add jalapeno slices, hot sauce, or Tajin.
  • HOW TO BRIGHTEN THE FLAVOR OF AVOCADO TOAST: Squeeze lemon or lime juice over the avocado!
