My morning routine usually involves waking up early for any number of various activities … especially sports and school (sad-but-true story). But I, as a teenage boy, am a huge advocate for sleeping lots. (*SIGH* Do you see the problem here??)

So, in order to maximize my sleep time, I need a quick but sustaining breakfast to power me through the day. If you read our blog a lot, you know my mom is alllll about nutritious breakfasts to fuel up for the day, and I’ve been trained well, believe me!

My go-to has always been eggs, and (not to brag … ahem …) I’ve pretty much perfected the scrambled egg. However, recently I’ve been seeing avocado toast all over the internet, and thought I’d give my classic egg an updated spin! Perfect! 

But wait! Are you wondering …

What Is Avocado Toast?

For those of you who don’t know what avocado toast is, well, it’s not hard to guess – but I’ll clarify …

Avocado toast is when you (wait for it) put avocado on toast!

Really, it’s pretty much that simple. Warm, crunchy toast is slathered with rich, creamy avocado – an incredibly satisfying combination of textures, yet perfectly simple (and nutritious!).

But here’s where the fun begins, because while it can be that simple, that can also be just the beginning of the story! Once the avocado and the toast meet up, you’ve got all kinds of options for toppings and flavors you can add. (Think avocado toast with Mexican 7-layer dip or smoked salmon. Hint … hint … recipes coming soon! 😉 ) 

Take my breakfast Avocado Toast with Egg as a perfect example. It’s even better than just plain ol’ avocado toast! You’ve got:

• Warm, whole-grain toast that boasts keep-you-full fiber and lots of great texture.

• A tangy slather of reduced-fat cream cheese, in addition to the creamy avocado. If you haven’t tried a little cream cheese on your avocado toast, I’m here to tell ya … it’s a major upgrade!

• Ridiculously good scrambled egg. (Remember I mentioned that I’ve perfected the scrambled egg?) Yeah … it’s awesome. I promise! Plus, it’s loaded with protein that helps the keep-you-full fiber in the toast keep you full looooooonger. Oh – and that hot sauce in the scrambled egg? It doesn’t make the egg spicy. It makes it good. Really, really good. Trust me on this part.

Oh, yes. This is breakfast joy. (If you’re awake enough to feel emotions in the morning.)

And, it’s got the trifecta of keep-you-full nutrients:

  1. whole grains
  2. protein
  3. healthy fats

Maybe add in some fresh fruit, and we’re talking breakfast of champions here.

And all that breakfast joy won’t dump you mid-morning, leaving you hungry, depleted and grouchy. Nope! This avocado toast will easily power you straight on to lunchtime. Breakfast joy that lasts all morning long! No energy crash, no rumbling tummy (which is so not cool).

Plus it’s ready in less than 10 minutes, so there’s a chance you’ll get to sleep in long enough to actually feel a little joyous. (maybe)

But What’s the Best Way to Mash the Avocado?

Avocado toast is flexible – so mash your avocado how you see fit. There’s no right or wrong! It can be super smooth or really chunky. In fact, you can even skip the mashing altogether and lay slices of avocado on top of your warm, toasty bread. Hey, you do you.

That being said, though, I’ll tell you how I like my avocado mashed.

I like it so that it still has a few creamy chunks of avocado, but is overall pretty smooth – that way it makes a great spread for your toast but still has some texture left. I usually use a fork, but my mom loves this little mashing gadget my grandma gave her for Christmas.

I also like my avocado mashed up with a little salt and a little pepper – not so much that they overpower the avocado, but enough to bring out its flavor. I tend to use around 1/16 of a teaspoon of each for half an avocado. But, it’s a judgement call.

That’s it! Easy, right?!?

How to Make Avocado Toast: Tips and Tricks

After making this recipe time after time, I’ve learned a couple little tips and tricks along the way.

1) Make sure that you have your avocado mashed and the ingredients for your scrambled egg all ready to put in the pan, before you pop the toast into the toaster. You want everything to be ready at essentially the same time!

2) After you top your warm toast with the cream cheese and mashed avocado, just plop the scrambled egg on top. If you made too much egg in proportion to the toast, you can put some on the side to eat like normal egg. The choice is all yours (again … the flexibility of this easy recipe)!

Swap-tions (Swaps and Options!)

Kind of repeating myself, here … but avocado toast really is so flexible and so, so easy. If you don’t like something in this recipe, take it out. The avocado toast is still gonna be awesome!

Or, if there’s something you really want to add, feel free! (Shhh … don’t tell my teachers, but they are wrong … adding and subtracting have no effect on the final product!)

  • Want to go vegetarian? Take out the turkey sausage. It’ll still be delicious!
  • Don’t have cheddar cheese in the fridge? Try feta or swiss!
  • Have some leftover veggies in the fridge? Scramble some up with the eggs. Peppers and onions would be especially great!
  • Like things spicy? Add extra hot sauce in as you scramble the egg, or even drizzle a little (or a lot!) on top!

You’re Ready to Power Up Your Day!

I love this recipe! And I really hope you do, too … and that it gives you the energy boost you need to get through the daily grind (or an awesome adventure)!

Ingredients

Mashed Avocado

  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1/16 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/16 teaspoon kosher salt

Scrambled Eggs

  • 1 egg
  • 1 breakfast turkey sausage link (about 22 grams), cut into thin rounds (we like Bob Evans)
  • 2 tablespoons shredded, reduced-fat cheddar cheese
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons nonfat milk
  • 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon Tabasco sauce (for flavor, not spiciness)

To Assemble

  • 1 large slice whole grain bread, lightly toasted (see note)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons reduced-fat cream cheese
  • optional for garnish: additional black pepper, thinly sliced chives, or a drizzle of Tabasco sauce

Instructions

  1. In a small bowl, mash avocado with a fork or a mashing tool. (As shown in the photo in the post, we like it to be just slightly chunky and not completely smooth, but you can adjust the consistency to your liking.) Stir in black pepper and salt. Set aside briefly while you toast the bread and make the scrambled eggs.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk egg, sausage rounds, cheese, milk, and Tabasco sauce. (Do this before toasting your bread, so the eggs and toast are done at the same time and the toast is still warm when you serve it). 
  3. Lightly toast bread.
  4. Meanwhile, preheat a small, nonstick skillet over medium heat (spray with cooking spray, if needed). Add egg mixture and cook until the egg is just set but not over-cooked (about 2 minutes), occasionally stirring gently with a rubber spatula so the egg mixture becomes scrambled and fluffy as it cooks.
  5. Spread warm toast with cream cheese, and then spread mashed avocado mixture on top of the cream cheese. Spoon warm scrambled egg mixture on top of the avocado. 
  6. Garnish as desired and serve immediately.

Notes

Bread: We like to use a larger slice of bread instead of a smaller, square sandwich bread. We always use a whole-grain or whole-wheat bread because it's more nutritious, and we prefer bread that has some bits of grains or seeds to add great texture. Among the store-bought brands, our current favorite is Dave's Killer Bread, which is organic (we used the Dave's 21 Whole Grains variety in our photos, which looks like THIS). Read ingredient lists carefully to make sure whole wheat or grains is the first ingredient, and that the bread doesn't contain any high-fructose corn syrup (as many processed brands do).
