Without a doubt my favorite breakfast since I started my weight loss and fitness journey is avocado and egg on toast. This is really such an easy creation that I'm a little embarrassed to even claim it's a “recipe”. Never the less, just becasue it's simple doesn't mean it's not delicious. It just takes less time to prepare and it's easier to clean up!
The ingredients for this recipe are only 5 things. Yes, I like to keep it simple, mainly because I'm not skilled enough yet to do anything much more complex! lol
Ingredients for Avocado and Egg on Toast Recipe:
- Eggs, 2
- Bread, 2 slices
- Avocado, 130 grams
- Honey, 21 grams
- Butter, 14 grams
The bread and honey brands used are my personal favorites. They're not the lowest in calories but I believe they're healthier options and I really enjoy the quality and taste.
Additionally, I use pure butter (unsalted), again personal preference. I don't worry about the small amount of added fat as I believe it's a healthier choice than the imitation stuff.
Lastly, there's nothing special about the avocado or eggs. I just hope they look good when I crack them open!
1) Scramble the eggs using the butter and eggs.
Note: I like to keep the eggs moving, never sitting for more than a second or two as they cook on medium heat. Believe it or not, it makes a big difference in the “fluffiness” and the taste of the eggs as well. The butter choice instead of spray also really makes a difference in taste.
2) Toast the bread and add avocado slices
Note: Yes! Most of the avocado was ripe this time. That always brings a smile to my face. 🙂
3) Place the scrambled eggs on top of the avocado and add the honey.
Note: It may be easier to add the honey on top of the avocado in the prior step. That way it reduces the likelihood of it dripping when handling and getting your hands all sticky.
- Eggs, 2 = 140
- Bread, 2 slices = 260
- Avocado, 1 medium = 200
- Honey, 15 grams = 30
- Butter, 14 grams = 90
Total calories = 720 calories
Keep in mind, the above calories could easily be reduced to under 600 if you swap some of the ingredients for lower calorie options.
For example, one slice of bread is 130 calories, which is a lot. There are other bread options that are 70 calories per slice. However, I really don't believe those lower calorie options are as nutritious. Of course, you could skip the bread entirely, or maybe use a keto friendly wrap.
Other possible calorie reductions include: using just 1 whole egg and 1 egg white, or eliminate the butter for low calorie cooking spray, or use less avocado, or eliminate the honey.
I've tried several brands of ingredients and numerous methods to cut calories. In the end, I've settled on using these ingredients becasue it's just so darn tasty!
You may notice that my food creations are not rocket science. Honestly, I'm really not a great cook but I'm trying, and I'm really enjoying learning new delicious combinations.
Well, that's it! I hope you enjoyed my little creation. I know I do. 🙂
