Are you an avocado toast lover? Add a hardboiled egg for a protein-packed healthy breakfast or dinner!

  • 1 egg
  • half an avocado, peeled, pitted and sliced
  • 1 piece whole wheat bread
  • salt and pepper, to garnish
  • red pepper flakes, to garnish
First, make the hardboiled egg:
  1. Put the egg in a pot and cover with cold water by 1 inch. Over high heat, bring to a boil, then shut off heat, cover pot, and remove from heat. Let pot sit, covered, for 8 minutes. Scoop out the egg with a slotted spoon and either dunk in an ice bath or run under cold water for a few minutes. Peel shell and slice egg into rounds.

To assemble toast:
  1. Toast bread. Smash avocado slices onto the toast with a fork. Arrange slices of hard-boiled egg on top and sprinkle with freshly ground salt and pepper and any other topping of choice (see notes).


  • smear a soft cheese like goat or ricotta underneath the avocado
  • drizzle avocado with lemon juice
  • top with bacon bits
  • garnish with a shake of garam masala
  • sprinkle with sesame seeds
  • sprinkle with toasted almond slivers
  • add pea shoots
  • add chopped scallions or chives
