Toast with Egg and Avocado
Now avocados are known to be insanely nutritious. In fact, according to Medical News Today:
Avocados are a source of vitamins C, E, K, and B6, as well as riboflavin, niacin, folate, pantothenic acid, magnesium, and potassium. They also provide lutein, beta carotene, and omega-3 fatty acids. Avocados contain high levels of healthy, beneficial fats, which can help a person feel fuller between meals.

Avocado Toast with Egg

What you have is a healthy filling meal without all the calories and empty nutrients!
Avocado on Toast
Most folks will just mash the avocado and put it on toast.
By grilling and charring it in a hot skillet, you’re going to bring out more of the flavor. It’s going to be more creamy and smooth and velvety.
We’re adding some spices that will elevate the overall flavor profile!
Toppings for Avocado Toast
Now you can decide your toppings for this toast, but for us, it was definitely thinly sliced sweet Vidalia onions, tomatoes and cucumbers. What we have is the crunch from the cukes and the juicy from the tomatoes. And, who doesn’t love tomatoes and onions together. Then topping the toast is some olive oil and freshly chopped celery leaves. They’re more flavorful, I think, than say flat parsley or curly parsley, and they add so much to the depth of taste.
Best Bread for Avocado Toast
Choosing the type of bread is a real personal choice. For us, it’s got to be a crusty sourdough.
Toasting it to a golden brown adds more crisp and crunch. Once you slather on all the charred avocado mash and toppings, you’ll see that the toast softens and is easier to cut and bite into.
