Avocado Toast is ALL OVER social media... (Instagram...Pinterest... I'm looking at you!). I am a huge advocate of avocados and eggs are my go to source of protein in the morning so this avo toast seems like a no brainer favorite for me. As a gluten free gal things need to be modified a bit though. I have tried many different versions of the "toast" portion... anything from gluten free pizza crust, to polenta, to gluten free bread. All of these options had their own perks but my tried and true favorite has become the corn tortilla. It is light enough that it doesn't overpower the avocado and the egg and it adds a bit of a taco flare which I can't complain about. This whole breakfast takes less than 10 minutes to make and is absolutely delicious.
I start with mashing the avocado with a tiny bit of salt and pepper, frying an egg, and then putting the corn tortilla on the frying pan for about 20 seconds to soften it up. The picture shows my basic version but sometimes I like to mix it up adding some tabasco or other hot sauce and maybe even cheese if I am feeling up to it. Another favorite addition is refried beans which definitely add a taco feel. Everyone who knows me knows that tacos are my all time favorite food so having them for breakfast is basically heaven. Overall this breakfast is a winner because it hits the spot and offers a great mix of protein, carbs, and healthy fat and on top of that it is so quick and simple to make!
What are your favorite ways to mix up the classic "avocado toast"?
