Avocado and Egg Breakfast Sandwich (URS: Breakfast)

Hard cooked eggs and toast make a fabulous base for an easily assembled and highly portable breakfast sandwich.

Breakfast can be a tricky meal. It’s the most important, but it’s also happening at a busy time. Mornings can be a rush. Somedays, I get the kids fed, but forget to feed the Mama. That’s when a breakfast sandwich suits me just right.

Easily assembled and highly portable a breakfast sandwich can combine protein, fat, and carbs in one tasty morsel. And if you keep hard cooked eggs and sandwich bread on hand, you’ve got it made.

Or close to.

Here’s how to build your breakfast sandwich:

1. Toast the bread.

I’m not a big fan of hard, crispy toast, at least not for sandwiches. I recommend toasting it enough to add structure to the sandwich but not so toasty that it scrapes the roof of your month. (Just saying)

2. Peel and mash the egg.

Each week I hardcook 8 to 10 eggs for our family to munch on. They cook quickly, store well, and are great for quick snacks or to pack in my husband’s lunch. (We just keep them away from FishChick3 who has the egg allergy.)

For the sandwich, peel the egg and place it on the toast. Lightly mash it with a fork and spread it across your toast.

3. Add some flavor.

Here’s where things get exciting. Add whatever you like to boost the sandwich to the next level. Consider these options:

  • avocado
  • tomato slices
  • sliced cheese
  • onion rings
  • spinach
  • sliced ham
  • salt and pepper
  • mayonnaise and/or mustard

There’s no limit to your options. Try different flavor combinations until you find what you like. My recent concoction included toast, egg, avocado slices, and sweet onion. Can’t wait for summer tomatoes to arrive so that I can add those into the mix. Yum!

  1. This looks like something my mom would love. I’ll have to pass this along.

  2. I love avocado. I could eat it on about anything! I linked up two recipes: one for a puffy German Pancake. It’s a staple at our house – 6 eggs, 1 cup milk, 1 cup flour & a bit else. Serve with syrup. My kids L.O.V.E this recipe. The second recipe is for Eggy Breakfast Muffins – a versatile recipe you can make with whatever meat & veggies you happen to have on hand. This is one of my hub’s favs. Best of all, this one’s freezer friendly! So make a double batch and save some for quick breakfasts later on. Thanks for hosing, Jessica!

  3. Looks like a great breakfast sandwich! Healthy and tasty! Thanks for hosting!

  4. Thanks for hosting, I posted this crazy viral egg technique that’s all over Pinterest, a way to NOT peel eggs. I also did a demo on our Carolina Kitchen Tuesday. I hope others benefit from this super easy technique to serve boiled eggs.

  5. Thank you for hosting. For breakfast on weekends I make cinnamon donut muffins. There is enough to last for snacks during the week for my 3 year old.

  6. That sounds delicious, but I do have one question — how is that sucker portable? It seems like everything would fall everywhere. Then again, maybe I’m defining “portable” wrong. I was picturing trying to eat it in the car while driving to work… ;-)

      I kind of smoosh it together. If the avocado is soft enough, it will act as “glue”. You can also wrap it in waxed paper if you’re really on the go.

  7. I Love egg sandwiches – usually I use kale and feta cheese. But lately I’ve switched to avocado and daikon radish sprouts (grown in my kitchen.)

    Avocado’s healthy fats keep you satisfied longer, are good for preventing heart disease. And get this – avocado is packed with L-carnitine, an amino acid that helps you lose weight, gain in lean muscle and have more energy. Pretty nice addition for a morning startup! For more portability @Kate, like when we’re in the car I’ll use a tortilla wrap instead of bread.

  8. Looks tasty! Thanks for sharing.

  9. I love avocado, and this looks delicious! Thanks!

  10. YUM! That looks really good!
    A breakfast burrito with avocado would be yummy too.

    Its almost lunchtime and I had eggs for breakfast, but now I could eat them again, if I had avocados!

  11. I love avocado, and have been using it more frequently in our family’s recipes. Basic guacamole and pasta salad are just the beginning, obviously…since I didn’t think to put it with egg for a breakfast sandwich! Yum! Can’t wait to try it :)
    I linked up with French Toast Bake. This is one of the most popular recipes on my blog, so I hope you like it too!

  12. i love eggs & avocado!

  13. Thanks so much for another great linky. I ALWAYS need inspiration for breakfast.

  14. Thanks for hosting. Hope mine is okay even though it’s not an ‘everyday’ breakfast but really a treat breakfast!

  15. Totally, going to try the egg, toast and avocado. Love all those ingredients!
