A great Avocado egg sandwich full of protein to help you start your day!
Folks always say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and with two busy boys in our house that demand food as soon as they get up, breakfasts often consist of bowls of cereal or yogurt to quickly sate the beasts! However on the weekends, we get a chance to slow down and come up with a breakfast that is a little more substantial and definitely more delicious. And how can you go wrong with an avocado egg sandwich?
One of our go to meals is a fried egg sandwich, a classic breakfast staple that serves nicely as a basic building block in making a variety of sandwiches using different seasonal ingredients.
We have been getting lots of great avocados recently which in our house typically gets turned into guacamole due to popular demand, but every now and then we can sneak one or two avocados away from the chip and dip crowd and use them for breakfast. Smash up an avocado and smear it on a crusty piece of toast and you can get a deliciously simple breakfast sandwich.
Add in a few pieces of crispy bacon, caramelized onions and sauteed mushrooms, top with a fried egg and that simple breakfast goes to the next level and becomes a savory decadent breakfast that is an absolute star on any breakfast sandwich.
What Ingredients are Needed for the Avocado Bacon Mushroom Egg Toast?
- Salt and Pepper
The combination of cool creamy avocado and crunchy salty bacon is a real winner, as the smoke of the bacon really brings out the flavor. The mushrooms soak up the savory garlic and bacon flavors while adding just a hint of chewy texture. Add in the luscious runny yolk from a sunny side up or over easy fried egg, and the flavors are deliciously rich and satisfyingly fatty.
Top up with a few sprinkles of your favorite hot sauce (we obviously recommend our personal favorite from Crazy Gringa Hot Sauce!) The little bursts of heat and cool makes each bite fantastic! Give this breakfast a try next weekend and let us know you liked it in the comments below!
