For years, I’ve put Avocado Toast on a pedestal. I thought it was only something you could order and high-end (or hipster) restaurants but not anything I could ever tackle at home. Today, I am proud to say that I have now successfully made Avocado Toast at home, and it was WAY easier than expected and just as good as I wanted it be. Hooray!
The ingredients are simple and, with a little patience, the prep is, too.
First, gather your ingredients:
-Fresh avocados that are easy to mash, or your favorite spreadable option (we love Good Foods 16-pack).
-1-2 chilled eggs
-Everything but the bagel seasoning (there are some good knock-offs out there, but we try to stay true to the OG from Trader Joe’s).
Next, get your water boiling. Find a small pot and fill it with enough water to fully submerge one to two eggs (pick based on protein needs or hunger level). Then, toast your bread and spread a generous layer of mashed avocado on it. Season lightly (or heavily depending on your preference) with the seasoning. Once your water is boiling, use a spoon to gently lower the egg(s) into the water. Set your timer for 6-minutes and let the magic happen. Once (softly) cooked, carefully place the egg in a bowl of ice water for 3-minutes.
Ever-so-gently, peel your egg, and cut it into fourths (or so) onto your pre-made toast. Finally, top with a light drizzle of sriracha. Feel free to jazz it up with anything else you have in your kitchen (microgreens, pickled onions, candied bacon, oh my!).
Pairs perfectly with a bowl of grapefruit and a big mug of coffee:)
Tackling this toast was an example of putting off learning to do something because I thought it would be too hard. In actuality, when I committed to doing a little research (I searched YouTube™ for how to make a soft-boiled egg), it wasn’t bad at all. Now what should I tackle next? I’m thinking French braiding Livia’s hair?
What’s one intimidating skill that you’ve been putting off tackling? Our advice … go for it!
