Prep Time
Cook Time
Total time: 20 minutes
  • 4 pieces good-quality bread
  • 2 ripe avocadoes
  • juice from 1/2 a lemon
  • 4 eggs
  • flaky sea salt and freshly-ground pepper, to taste
  • 1 pinch of red pepper flakes
  1. Toast 4 pieces of bread until your desired level of doneness. For the best results, use a delicious crusty bread, like sourdough or a whole grain loaf.
  2. Working carefully, cut 2 avocados in half and remove pit. Peel skin off avocadoes and cut into thin slices.
  3. Arrange your avocado slices on 4 pieces of toasted bread in an even layer.
  4. Squeeze the juice from 1/2 a lemon evenly on the avocado toasts. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Cook 4 eggs in your desired method. We love a poached egg with a runny yolk, but fried eggs, scrambled eggs and even hard-boiled eggs can make a great avocado toast topping.
  6. Add 1 egg on top of each avocado toast pice.
  7. Add red peper flakes. Serve and enjoy!
