Egg in a Basket ~ Avo-Toast Edition

If you've been following along my IG this week, I'm on an egg and breakfast kick! Easter is right around the corner and it's a time when most people have eggs on their mind. Even if Easter's not your jam, I hope you enjoy a good avocado toast or brunch idea. Normally I am a pretty standard scrambled eggs kinda gal, but today I thought I'd try a fun twist on avocado egg toast by cooking the egg right in the bread. I used thick slices of the whole wheat bread I made in our bread maker this week. Normally I have farm fresh eggs on hand, but with the COVID19 restrictions I haven't been able to get any recently. To cut the hole out, I used a small canning jar to twist out the bread. Then, I put the bread slice in a greased, heated pan and cracked the egg right in the middle. Once it was cooked a bit, I flipped it over to sear the other side. I sprinkled the egg with pepper and turmeric (key word: sprinkled - don't accidentally dump all your turmeric on the egg like I did in the video LOL). Once cooked to my liking, I served with sliced avocado sprinkled with some everything but the bagel sesame seasoning from Trader Joes. Once plated, I added the avocado slices right on top and ate just like a slice of toast. It was so good and easy to whip up! See below for my 30 second tutorial and photos.


  • Egg

  • Bread of choice

  • Half avocado, sliced

  • Olive oil to heat in the pan

  • Seasonings to taste: I used pepper, turmeric, and EBTB seasoning

this is so cool. we love these. made them for robby when he was little. called them birds nests. of course back then they weren’t organic and didnt have the avocado. we like avocado toast too and bob likes it with an egg so will have to try this version. our grand daughter introduced us to avocado toast when she was living with us.
