Poaching the perfect egg may not come easy to you, but with this recipe simply poach the egg, mash the avocado, and top it all on a fresh piece of whole wheat toast. it doesn't get any simpler or more wholesome than that. Add a little Sriracha if you like it spicy! You can go really crazy and use guacamole instead of plain mashed avocado. It's a little more work, but it sure is tasty. You can also just spice it up with a little cayenne or a drizzle of your other favorite hot sauce or spice. This toast is so versatile. You can really top this toast with any kind of egg. A fried egg would work just as well. Even scrambled would be welcomed. Whatever is easier for you.


  • 1/2 avocado, mashed, chunky if you like

  • 1 slice whole-wheat bread, toasted

  • 1 large egg

  • 1 dash salt, to taste

  • 1 dash freshly ground black pepper, to taste

  • 1 dash Sriracha, or other hot sauce, to taste

Steps to Make It

  1. Toast your whole-wheat bread until lightly browned but still slightly soft. A really crunchy toast will be hard to eat with the toppings.  

  2. Mash your avocado, leaving it as chunky as you like. Sprinkle a little salt onto the avocado.

  3. Poach your egg, or use a fried egg, whatever you prefer.

  4. Spread the avocado over the toast. Top it with your egg. Sprinkle a little hot sauce on top if you like and another sprinkle of salt! Dig in and enjoy.

  5. Recipe can easily be doubled or tripled but is best done single serve, this way the toast stays crispy, the avocados stay green, and the eggs perfectly poached.
