Hard Boiled Eggs with Avocado Toast

Here we have a perfect marriage of two of my favourite foods: eggs and avocados. My love of avocados runs deep; I can easily devour a whole avocado every day, slicing half on toast and half on a salad later in the day. My husband gives me such a hard time about all of the avocados I eat ­čśë (Can’t stop, won’t stop!)

Avocado toast is the perfect avocado vessel for fanatics like me. (Psst, for some fun reading, check out How the Internet became ridiculously obsessed with avocado toast and My fruitful search for the origins of avocado toast.)

To pair with avocado toast, I like to add a hard boiled egg. Along with the healthy fats in the avocado, eggs provide tons of protein, vitamin D, B vitamins, and minerals such as zinc, iron and copper. Which means that Hard Boiled Eggs with Avocado Toast will keep you full, and doubles as a quick lunch.

┬áThis recipe isn’t really a recipe per se. It’s just a guideline of some foods that taste good together –┬ácertainly not re-inventing the wheel! ­čśë I’ve included a few favourite variations – like adding a smear of goat cheese or ricotta cheese underneath your smashed avocado, or adding chopped scallions or chives. Whatever you do, make sure to grind fresh pepper, coarse salt, and sprinkle red pepper flakes to garnish for a kick of flavour.

And I leave you with a┬ámorning hack – make┬ámultiple hard boiled eggs at the beginning of the week and store them in the fridge for quick breakfasts (or lunch salads!) throughout your busy week.┬áAnything to make mornings easier!
