Hello people! I cannot believe it is almost August. The long summer days go by fast!
I’ve been a little MIA over here the past week or so, but only because I’ve been busy studying NASM, visiting with my mom (ok ok that was last weekend), and working.
In other news, I’ve also been very into open-faced sandwiches. Specifically, sourdough + avocado + egg. If I’m feeling a little adventurous, I’ll add some cheese in there too.
I’d seen so many pictures of avocado toast blowing up blogger’s posts and Instagram feeds, I knew I had to try it for myself. However, I wanted to kick the flavour (and protein) up just a notch, so I made a couple eggs and tossed them on top.
You know when you make a recipe and it’s so good that you think to yourself, “man, they would charge like $20 for this at a restaurant”! No? Yes? I admit, this may be the first time that’s ever happened to me.
I’m not even a fan of egg sandwiches, but thanks to the hefty amount of avocado, sourdough, and minuscule amount of cheese (eggs + lots of cheese = yuck), I was loving it.
Open Faced Egg and Avocado Toast
Serves 2, or 1 very hungry person (aka me)
- 2 slices sourdough bread
- 2 eggs; fried with slightly runny yolks (sunny side up, I believe that’s called)
- 1 avocado
- a little bit of cheese (I used cheddar the first time, and goat cheese the next, and they were both great)
- seasoning/ salt and pepper to taste
Toast the bread, cook the eggs, mash the avocado, top em up, and voila!
I inhaled two open faced sandwiches this morning when I came back from Flywheel. It was my first time back at Flywheel in a couple of years, and I’d completely forgotten how hard you work when you’re competing against the others in the class! To make matters even more intense, I was seated beside an instructor, so I was constantly trying to keep up with him the whole time. Let’s just say I earned my breakfast this morning, and I will need to keep re-hydrating for the rest of the day.
Now I’m off to a meeting, followed by some NASM studying, and then squash later on this evening! Shaping up to be a good day so far!
Are you a breakfast sandwich kind of person? If so, what’s your favourite combination?
