I told in my several posts that avocado is not very common in Turkish cuisine, but as we do love this healthful vegetable (or fruit?), I love to try new recipes with it. I saw the combination of egg and avocado in many recipes, so I wanted to make this scrumptious Egg and Avocado Toast.
Although this egg and avocado toast looks like a breakfast food, I made it as an appetizer before lunch. It might sound weird, but I didn’t feel like eating avocado in the morning. I just can’t give up Turkish style breakfast with various cheeses, olives, tomatoes and cucumbers.
I already feel the flavor of egg when eating plain avocado, this might be the reason why these two make great couples.
Egg is one of the foods I can’t live without, I love it so much that I can have an egg at each meal, but I stop myself due to health concerns. This one was my second egg in a day, so I don’t think it was a problem.
I love my egg soft boiled and Yusuf loves his a bit hard boiled, so we had two versions of Egg and Avocado Toast in the end. I can die for the moment when the yolk oozes just when I bite or cut the egg! So mouthwatering, isn’t it?
We need a ripe avocado for this toast, because we want it to stick on the toasted bread. It’s easier to handle the toast this way. Well, it’s still a bit hard not to have a mess when eating the soft boiled egg on the top, but I do love that mess!
If you love hard boiled eggs or if you want to be a clean eater, then use a hard boiled egg on your toast just like Yusuf did. It’s so tasty either way!
