How to Make Avocado Toast with Egg

This light yet filling breakfast, brunch, or protein-rich snack is ready in only 15 minutes.

First, slice the bread and toast according to your preferences: You can use a toaster, toaster oven, or standard oven set at 400 degrees F.

Meanwhile, cook your eggs however you like: hard-boiled, scrambled, poached, fried, or sunny-side-up in a pan or skillet.

Next, cut the avocado in half and remove the pit. Then cut each half in half, to create 4 equal sections. Use a fork to smash each avocado section, and then smear the avocado mash flesh over each piece of toast.

Top each piece of toast with a cooked egg.

Then add your preferred toppings and spices (salt and everything but the bagel seasoning are popular). Enjoy the toast right away.
