Egg-Topped Avocado Toast

We always have avocados on hand, so it's easy to make this quick breakfast toast for my husband and me. It's really tasty! —Kallee Krong-McCreery, Escondido, California
  • Total Time
    Prep/Total Time: 20 min.
  • Makes
    2 servings


  • 2 slices multigrain bread, toasted
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 1/2 medium ripe avocado, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 4 thin slices tomato
  • 2 thin slices red onion
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/8 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 2 tablespoons shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled


  • Spread each slice of toast with butter; place on a plate. Top with avocado; mash gently with a fork. Top with tomato and onion.
  • To poach each egg, place 1/2 cup water in a small microwave-safe bowl or glass measuring cup; break an egg into the water. Microwave, covered, on high 1 minute. Microwave in 10-second intervals until white is set and yolk begins to thicken; let stand 1 minute. Using a slotted spoon, place egg over sandwich.
  • Sprinkle eggs with seasoned salt. Top with cheese and bacon.

Test Kitchen tips
  • For a buttery texture and flavor, be sure to use a ripe avocado. To speed its ripening, place it in a brown paper bag along with an apple or kiwifruit.
  • If your avocado is ripe before you need it, refrigerate it and it'll stay at its peak a few days longer.
  • To store leftover avocado, sprinkle the cut surface with lemon juice and wrap it tightly with plastic wrap; use within a day.
  • If you're more comfortable cooking your egg in a skillet, sunny side up or over-easy eggs would be delicious, too!
  • Health Tip: Skip the cheese and bacon to reduce the saturated fat and start your morning on a healthier note.

      Great recipe for breakfast or lunch! In place of the butter I used a little mayo and cooked my eggs in a skillet. Such a wonderful combination of flavors.....the tomato and onion and a sprinkling of seasoned salt along with the creamy avocado really brings this dish together. If you've got an avocado staring at you from the kitchen counter, make this! Will definitely enjoy this fact, it's my lunch again tomorrow.

      I had some sour dough bread that I toasted for this. Since family doesn't like poached eggs, I placed a fried egg on top instead. Great, easy recipe.
