Sunnyside up egg with avocado and toast by Christina Branco

You will need the following ingredients:

  • 1 pan
  • Spatula
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 slices of bread (sourdough or multigrain)
  • 1 avocado
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Alfalfa sprouts (if you’re feeling fancy)
  • Cherry tomatoes (cut in 1/2 or 1/4)
  • Tsp of cooking oil (olive, canola, butter or whichever oil you prefer)


  1. Turn your stove on to low-medium heat, crack both eggs and cook until the whites of the eggs are solid, but the yolk is still runny. This process will take no longer than 2-2 1/2 minutes.
  2. While the eggs are cooking, toast your two slices of bread and smash your avocado. Take a knife and slice the avocados down the middle, remove the pit and take a fork and smash the avocados. Once that’s finished, spread the smashed avocado on your pieces of toast.
  3. Slice your cherry tomatoes and add any extra garnish you want.
  4. Once your eggs are finished cooking, take your spatula and remove the eggs from the pan. Place the sunny side up eggs on your avocado toast.
  5. If you’re feeling it, you can add salt and pepper to taste as well as sliced tomatoes and alfalfa sprouts on top.

The finished product is scrumptious avocado 


A lot of the fat in this recipe comes from the avocado and eggs. If you’re looking to make this meal more fat-conscious, as an alternative, you can use only egg whites and turn it into a scramble.

Add the egg whites to your pan as usual and scramble them. Place the egg whites on the smashed avocado spread as you usually would. Add the extra vegetables and garnish as you see fit.
