Sooo I kind of have the biggest sweet tooth EVER.
And it’s kind of taking over my life. (Just look at the breakfast and dessert portions of my recipe index.)
Breakfast is something that I almost always want to be on the sweeter side, but even I get cravings for something savory.
Enter: the most delish, savory breakfast in the universe that satisfies even moi. And it takes 10 minutes to make!
Did I mention it’s also one of the most filling and nutritious breakfasts out there? Let’s start the day with a NUTRITION POWER HOUSE, people!
Three main components give it major power brekkie status:
- whole grain toast: whole grains still include all parts of the grain, including the rough bran, the nutritious germ, and the endosperm. This means fiber, which will keep you full longer and lower cholesterol, contributing to a healthy heart.
- avocado: not only do avocados impart great flavor, but they’re also great for your health. They have more potassium than a banana (975mg, to be exact, compared to 487mg in a large banana), and are a great source of antioxidants heart-healthy fats, and protein.
- eggs: eggs are a significant source of complete protein, a necessary component of a power breakfast. Protein will help wake you up and give you sustained energy throughout the day.
Also it’s yummy, and that’s WAY important. Happy taste buds = happy mornings.
I’m on vacation this week, so this will probably be my only post for the week. But that gives you some time to make it a few times, decide how you like your eggs (I like over-easy), and come back and let me know. 😉

Avocado Toast with Eggs
2 slices hearty whole grain bread
1 ripe avocado
vegan butter for pan
salt and pepper to taste
1. Start the bread toasting. While the bread is toasting, heat a small skillet over medium-low heat for the eggs. Then cut the avocado in half lengthwise (there’s a large pit, if you’re unfamiliar with avocados). Pierce the pit with the knife and twist to remove it.
2. Melt a little butter in the skillet. Gently break the eggs directly into the skillet.
3. Use a fork to mash the avocado over the toast.
4. When all of the egg whites look set, carefully flip the eggs over. Let cook one minute longer, then place one egg on each slice of toast. Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve immediately.
