egg sandwich with avocado and bacon

My brain is addicted to breakfast. For lunch and dinner. In fact, I could have it at every meal for the rest of my life and be completely content.

In my opinion, there really is nothing that beats an egg sandwich — specifically this egg sandwich. And although it’s as simple as it appears, it truly is the best you will ever have.

Let me put it this way: Eggs + Avocado + Bacon + Tomato + a little heat all on top of thick grainy toast = OMG! It makes me want to cry every time I eat it, in a good way of course. Tears of pure happiness. This egg sandwich will probably be the best party your taste buds will ever experience.

Okay I’ll stop with the dramatic descriptions. This open-faced sandwich just makes me happy. And I want to share the recipe with you!

I make this sandwich open-faced because I enjoy eating it with a fork and knife and soaking up the incredible runny yolk. I like switching up my toppings too!

The following are my go-tos:

  • 1/2 a ripe avocado, sliced or mashed
  • ripe, sliced tomatoes
  • red pepper flakes
  • 1 egg, usually fried over easy, sometimes poached
  • crispy bacon — I use turkey bacon
  • good multi-grain bread for toasting — the thicker the better!
  • pepper jack, havarti, or goat cheese — I like mixing it up
  • good quality hot sauce
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper

Other favorites I’ve added:

  • spinach, arugula, or kale — more good-for-you greens!
  • green chile
  • tomatillo salsa
  • cucumbers
  • basil or cilantro — for that fresh taste!
  • red or green onion
  • chicken sausage, thinly sliced
  • tri-colored peppers, sauteed
  • jalapenos — if you like it hot!

Happy weekend!

Start your morning off right with the best egg sandwich ever. It’s served open-face on hearty bread, with turkey bacon, avocado, cheese, tomato, plus a little bit of heat. So simple and so delicious, plus you can mix and match toppings to make it your own.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 a ripe avocado
  • 1 slice of good multi-grain bread for toasting - the thicker the better!
  • 1 tomato, sliced
  • 1 egg
  • 2 slices of turkey bacon
  • 1 slice of high-quality pepper jack cheese
  • few dashes of hot sauce (I use cholula brand)
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

  1. In a small bowl, add avocado and sprinkle with salt and pepper, gently mash with a fork until it reaches a slightly chunky consistency. Add red pepper flakes if desired.

  2. Toast bread to perfection, and spread smashed avocado over toast. Add the tomatoes and slice of cheese.

  3. In a small skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crispy. Remove and transfer to paper towel and pat dry. Keep heat and crack egg into skillet. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and cook until egg whites are set on the bottom yet yolk is still glossy, about 3 minutes or so. 

  4. Add the bacon to the toast and top with the fried egg. The warm egg should melt the cheese a bit. Top with a few dashes of hot sauce, if desired. Either add on another slice of toast and eat it like a sandwich, or serve it open faced like I do and dig in with a fork and knife. Enjoy!
