Breakfast isn’t my favorite meal. I like breakfast foods well enough, but I rarely get excited about it all. I like sausage and eggs and bacon, but I’d just as soon have a bunch of melon, some juice, and be done with it. I don’t even drink coffee so there’s no morning ritual with a nice warm cup of something infused with caffeine to look forward to. But this… this is something to look forward to. Simple, delicious, ready in mere minutes. This is a breakfast I can get behind.
Avocado Toast with a Fried Egg
1/2 ripe avocado
Sprinkle of garlic powder
Squeeze fresh lemon, to taste
Salt, to taste
1 piece bread of choice
1/2 tablespoon butter
Place the flesh of 1/2 a ripe avocado in a shallow dish. Sprinkle with garlic powder. Add a squeeze of lemon juice and salt to taste. Mash well with a fork. Set aside.
Set bread to toast.
Heat a small skillet to medium-high. Add butter. Once butter is melted, crack egg into pan and fry, flipping at least once, until desired yolk-consistency is reached.
When toast is toasty, cover with avocado mash and top with your fried egg. Eat.
Seriously – isn’t that super good?! Oh man, I could eat one right now!!
PS – Use gluten-free bread for the gluten-free version of this. The rest of it is inherently gluten-free, which is awesome.
