Healthy Avocado Toast

We live in a time where avocado seems to be all the rage. It's truly everywhere, and I am one of those gals who has jumped on the avocado bandwagon. There are tons of interesting and delicious ways to enjoy avocado, and along with them, there are also tons of health benefits to consuming them. Not everyone in my house likes avocados, so I try not to over-buy them, but I do usually purchase 2-3 avocados a week and use them in different ways.

Easy Avocado Toast

One of my favorite ways to enjoy avocado is on toast with eggs. I'll add it to just about any sandwich, but it makes an incredible addition to a boring old breakfast. To make my favorite breakfast, all you need is a nice piece of bread to toast, a ripe avocado, and a couple of eggs. I like to use a sturdy piece of bread which will actually hold the weight of the eggs and avocado without falling apart. Trader Joe's and Earth Fare are among my favorite stores to buy bread. Salisbury also has a fabulous local bakery with amazing bread, as well.

Semi-hard boil the eggs while you prepare the toast and the avocado. I like to boil a small pot of water, and then place 2 eggs into the water, place the lid on the pot, and let them steam boil for about 11 minutes. This cooks the whites and leaves the yokes semi-runny.

You'll know your avocado is ripe and ready to eat when the skin is a very dark color, and the little end stem falls off easily. Simply cut the avocado in half lengthwise, remove the pit with a knife, and then score the avocado, and scoop out gently with a large spoon.

Toast your bread, and layer the avocado pieces on top. Top the avocado with your halved eggs (after you peel them, of course!). Now, here's where you can get a bit creative- add salt and pepper, add some sunflower seeds or nuts, or even add fresh tomato and spinach! Your avocado toast creation doesn't have to be boring.

With so many great ways to use and enjoy avocados, I'll be sharing more ideas and recipes soon. For now, I'm off to make some breakfast for my family. Avocados, here I come!
