Easy avocado & egg breakfast sandwich ready in just 10 minutes.
Sometimes it’s really hard to get myself up and going in the morning… anyone else? My kids are much better sleepers than they used to be, but we still have rough nights now and then. So starting off the day with something delectabl and SO easy helps push me out of my cloudy mind space. (Well, an easy breakfast AND a homemade iced coffee.) I threw together this avocado breakfast sandwich a few weeks ago on a whim, and I’ve been addicted ever since. It comes together quickly, and it is seriously so delicious!
So I am a huge fan of avocados. And lucky for me, no one else in my family likes them, so I get them all to myself. I had been hearing so many rave reviews about avocado toast, and I tried it a few times but I just wasn’t super impressed. I guess I’m not a true millennial….ha!
One day I was super craving a breakfast sandwich from my favorite fast food chicken place, and suddenly decided I should combine the two worlds. So I assembled the most delicious array of ingredients. A toasted English muffin, an avocado, a lime, an egg, some pickled onions, some salt and pepper, and some mayonnaise and sriracha. I took my first bite, and it was seriously perfection!
My husband saw me eating it and asked where his was….and he hates avocado. I threw together another one for him, although he chose to have spinach as his veggie of choice and added some pepper jack cheese to his fried egg.
The beauty of this “recipe” is that it’s totally customizable to your preferences. And if you know me at all, that is totally my jam. So many of my favorite dishes are adaptations of things I’ve found. I love to add my own flair to things… usually that means I add something spicy or tangy…in this case I added both. While this may not be as easy as a frozen waffle or freezer-ready French toast, it’s definitely more satisfying!
