I’ve been obsessed with avo toast for breakfast, especially when I have avocados in my fridge that need to be used up. It’s a simple, healthy breakfast when you need something delicious and fast. I also got Tommy and Karina on board, we all love avocado toast!!

Is avocado toast with egg healthy

Avocado toast is not just delicious, it’s also easy and good for you too. Avocados are a great source of vitamins C, E, K, and B6, as well as magnesium, and potassium. They also provide omega-3 fatty acids, lutein and beta carotene. Eggs are a good source of protein, and a great source of important nutrients, such as vitamin B6, B12 and vitamin D.

Best bread to use for avocado toast

There’s many great bread options to make avocado toast. If I am using a fresh bread, I usually like to use sour dough bread, rye or pumpernickel. For a shelf stable bread, Dave’s Killer Bread thin sliced is my favorite. If you need a gluten-free bread, schar gluten free bread is a great option.

Meal Prep Tips for Avocado Toast:

  • To store unused ½ of avocado, wrap tightly with plastic wrap and place in refrigerator. They also sell avocado keepers (affiliate link) that claim to keep them fresher longer.
  • Leave the pit in and get the wrap as close to the surface of the fruit as possible.
  • If browning occurs, gently scrape the exposed flesh with a butter knife and voila, beautiful green avocado lies within!
  • For meal prep, it’s best to use the hard boiled egg option.

Avocado Toast Variations

  • Gluten Free – use your favorite gluten-free bread.
  • No Eggs – don’t like eggs, leave them out!
  • Salmon – add smoked salmon for added protein.
  • Poached – if you want to get fancy, top your toast with a poached egg and microgreens.
  • Scrambled – if you prefer scrambled eggs, try them topped with some salsa.
  • Hard Boiled – hard boiled eggs are a great option for meal prep. If you wan to make it even better, add sliced tomato and scallions.
  • For flavor – add Everything Bagel seasoning on top.
  • Guacamole – Swap the avocado for guacamole (I do this when I have leftover) for a Mexican avocado toast.
  • Sliced – Don’t like your avocado mashed, slice it!
  • Add Tomatoes – Cherry tomatoes, sliced tomatoes or pico de gallo are a wonderful addition.

Course: Breakfast, Brunch
Cuisine: American
Avocado Toast with Egg 4 Ways
Prep: 5 mins
Cook: 5 mins
Total: 10 mins
Yield: 1 serving
Serving Size: 1 toast


  • 1 slice whole grain or gluten-free bread toasted (I love Dave's Killer Bread good seed, thin sliced)
  • 1 oz mashed 1/4 small haas avocado
  • cooking spray
  • 1 large egg
  • kosher salt and black pepper to taste
  • hot sauce or red pepper flakes optional


  • Mash the avocado in a small bowl and season with salt and pepper.

For Sunny Side Up Egg Option:

  • Heat a small nonstick skillet over low heat, when hot spray with oil and gently crack the egg into the skillet. Cover and cook until the egg sets and the yolk is to your liking.

Hard Boiled Egg Option:

Scrambled Egg Option:

  • Beat the egg in a small bowl with a fork and season with a pinch of salt. Heat a small nonstick skillet over low heat, when hot spray with oil and pour the egg into the skillet. When the edges start to set, gently fold the eggs until the eggs are cooked through, about 2-3 minutes.

Poached Egg Option:

  • Bring a small pot of water to a boil. Crack the egg into a small bowl. When the water is boiling stir 1 teaspoon of white vinegar into the water and stir in a circular motion to create a vortex. Lower the heat then carefully add the egg to the middle of the pot and cook for 3-4 minutes, until the yolk is cooked to your liking. Remove the egg with a slotted spoon and place on a paper towel.

To finish the avocado toast:

  • Place mashed avocado over toast, top with egg, sprinkle with salt and pepper and/or hot sauce or red pepper flakes, if desired!

  1. I decided to try this recipe using Trader Joe’s pumpernickel panne and jammy eggs_ cooked in the microwave until the yolks were cooked about have way between soft and hard. This is amazing! Definitely a new favorite breakfast, or even lunch or light dinner!

  2. Best way (IMHO): Find a really good multigrain bread for toast (bakery, not supermarket). Mix lots of lemon juice into the avocado mash – need not be fresh squeezed – and salt to taste. Top with sprouts, alfalfa, radish, etc., or with microgreens. Add egg (up or over easy) on top. Delish!

    I was not a big fan of avocado until I tried this recipe. It is now in my breakfast rotation.

  4. Made this recipe with a few alterations, was so good I made a second one. Used sourdough bread for the toast, fried egg over easy. Mashed half an avocado onto the toast, and then coated that with a layer of newman’s medium black bean salsa. Easily the best breakfast sandwich I’ve ever had, and super easy to whip up. The black bean salsa really brought it all together. Highly recommend.

    This is my favorite breakfast. I use light bread to save on points and I like it with Everthing but a Bagel. However, it is even good without ir. I find this to be quite filling and after the first time or two it just takes minutes to make. I scoop and mash the avocado while the egg is frying and I cook it in 1 tsp olive oil.
