Avocado Toast with Egg

Avocado Toast with Egg is so simple, yet so delicious and satisfying! TheCornerKitchenBlog.com #avocado

Happy Friday!  I’m currently in beautiful, sunny Palm Beach, Florida.  I figured if the sun and warm weather weren’t coming to me in New York, it was time to take matters into my own hands and to go to warmer temps!  Well, that, and I’m here for a wedding this weekend.

This morning I’m tackling my last long run before the Brooklyn Half Marathon.  I planned today’s run by combining a couple of suggested routes from MapMyRun.  We’ll have some great scenery as we cover most of Palm Beach, head over to West Palm for a short stretch, and back to Palm Beach.  In fact, as you’re reading this I’m probably mid-run….and I’m probably dreaming about this avocado toast with egg.

By the time I hit the last few miles of my long runs, all I can think about it is what I want to eat when I get home.  I may not even be hungry yet, but I know I’ll be ravenous the minute I walk through the door, so food is on my mind.  My post-run food cravings can run the gamut from watermelon and pineapple to a cheeseburger (although, it’s pretty rare I actually seek out the burger).  More regularly, I go with a big smoothie filled with greens, a bowl of oats and quinoa, an egg sandwich or once in a while, pancakes.

Lately, my post-run meal of choice has been lightly toasted multi-grain bread with a thick coating of mashed avocado and a delicate, yolky sunnyside egg, with a sprinkling of se salt and fresh ground pepper.

To be honest, there’s really nothing special or extraordinary about avocado toast with egg.  And, that’s really what makes it so great!  It is so, so simple, yet so delicious and satisfying.  This toast is perfect for so many ocassions, though – breakfast, lunch, snack, a simple dinner.  Try adding black beans, sliced tomato or a sprinkle of shredded cheddar cheese to your toast!

yum! I love avocados, but have never thought about mashing it all up on toast with a dippy egg. Sounds like an easy breakfast.

I wish I had this in front of me right now! This would be a fun breakfast for cinco de mayo too :)


Hannah @ CleanEatingVeggieGirl May 10, 2013 at 4:53 PM

This is the best and one of my favorite “go-to” breakfasts. I have never though to add black beans, though. I will have to give that a try!

Tried this recipe this morning, and WOW, in all honesty it is one of the best things I’ve ever had for breakfast. I do think that you should wait until the eggs are cooked to toast the bread though so that your toast isn’t cold. But other than that, this recipe is amazing. Easy, quick, healthy, tasty — amazingness

Thanks, Nick! So glad you enjoyed it!

How many calories does this have?


Kelli September 13, 2014 at 8:00 AM

Unfortunately I do not have the nutritional information. Sorry!

Eggs are not high in calories, 1 large egg is around 90 calories, toast is probably between 60-70, depending on what you use and the avocado paste is very little in calories as well, maybe 20-30 depends on how much you spread on. So something around 200-250 calories at most. This looks so good though, I am very tempted to make it now.

I can’t stomach runny egg yolks. I abhor the taste! Can I just scramble the egg?


Kelli February 6, 2015 at 7:57 AM

I hear you, runny eggs aren’t for everyone. You can definitely use scrambled eggs instead.


Sue February 16, 2015 at 2:47 PM

Baste eggs until white is done. I do not care for runny eggs either. This recipe sounds great.
I keep looking for healthy recipes.

I see that alot of your recipes call for eggs. What about people with high cholesterol? Do you have substitutes that will taste just as good?


Kelli March 23, 2015 at 10:50 AM

The avocado is the real star of this! You could always swap out the egg for some sliced fresh veggies, and maybe a sprinkle of red pepper flakes. Enjoy, Leyna!

So, a serving is only one toast? Is it filling? How can I eat just one?! The temptation may just be unbearable…


Kelli April 10, 2015 at 2:27 PM

I know, right! It’s surprising how filling one piece is – though some days I totally go for two :)
