Avocado Toast Recipe
I didn’t think it was possible to love avocado any more than I already do. I always have at least 4 or 5 ready to eat in the kitchen, and they are an absolute staple for my kid’s lunches and dinners. I never realized that simply frying an egg and combining it with some smashed avocado and hearty toast would be so over the top delicious!!
The combination of flavor + texture is out of this world amazing! And the pictures are so pretty it looks like some a fancy breakfast that would take all morning to prepare but that is definitely not the case. This honestly takes about 5 minutes to prepare. It is perfect for breakfast. Lunch. Dinner. Or even as power-packed snack.
