I’ve got something GREAT for you guys today! It takes, like, ten minutes to make, and tastes amazing.
You know when something is satisfying because it’s got all the textures and tastes you’re looking for? Yup – this is it.
Creamy, chewy, crispy, AND cheesy. It doesn’t get much better!
Oh, did I mention it’s super easy?
All I did was top a toasted, halved focaccia bun with a smear of butter. I always buy focaccia from a local bakery. It’s always spiced with little oregano flakes and addictive poppyseeds. So good. Then, I mashed an avocado with some freshly-ground black pepper and a bit of lemon juice. Spread the mashed avocado on top of the toasted bun, and top that with a scrambled egg (with a Laughing Cow cheese wedge cooked in!). The cheesiness in the egg cuts through the rich herbs in the bun. It’s seriously so, so good. I cannot get over how amazing eggs and cheese taste together!
On top of being creamy and delicious, avocados are cholesterol- and sodium-free, and more than 50 percent of the fruit’s fat content comes from monounsaturated fats or good fats. You can also find healthy monounsaturated fats in almonds and olive oil.
This was a daily lunch in the summer, when I wanted something not-too-heavy. Great with some fruit or a little salad! This would also work as a filling, healthy breakfast. Really, this avocado toast will work for any meal! Why not try having this open-faced sammie with a fruity yogurt bowl for dessert or a hearty morning meal?
Even though I never got sick of the egg + Laughing cow + avocado on focaccia, I came up with another scrumptious combo!
In this version, I ditched the avocado for roasted red pepper, and added some garlicky basil pesto. Classico makes the best, and you can find it in supermarkets everywhere. Instead of scrambled eggs, I plopped a runny fried egg on top, as well as a sprinkle of parmesan cheese. Open-faced sandwiches are so good! I like sopping up the yolk with the crusty bread.
Try this out and let me know how you like it. Enjoy!
And don’t forget the freshly-ground black pepper. It will honestly take any meal from good to gourmet!
Have a great Wednesday evening – time for me to do homework! 🙂
