Healthful, nutritious, and filling, this avocado toast with hard-boiled egg, and tomato is an easy-to-assemble open-faced sandwich ready for eating on the go.
Are you over the “put an egg on it” movement yet? I know. Me neither. It seems like it’s the mantra for making any favorite recipe a little harder to resist. It’s the most popular way to sexy things up. Simply top whatever you’re making with a golden drippy yellow yolk that oozes down the edges of whatever it’s topping and BAM! You have one Instgrammable dish. I’m certainly a fan of the egg drip over anything and everything, but it can be a bit of a mess, and far from being hand-held fare. To make my egg-topped avocado toast a little less napkin-needy, I’ve taken to topping it with the simple but mighty hard-boiled egg. And this time around, this egg gets a shave. I first discovered this idea when I had an avocado toast at Solitude Mountain Resort’s Honeycomb Grill. There it’s served on squaw bread with romesco sauce and cotija cheese. Their version is hardy and definitely more of a knife-and-fork affair. But for me, breakfast and lunch are usually eaten on the go or at least while I’m doing several things at one time, so making a quick open-face sandwich with ingredients I can have ready to assemble is key to my meal planning success. I recently discovered my favorite new way to make hard-boiled eggs that peel like a dream: My Instant Pot’s pressure cooker setting. I cook them on low for 7 minutes at high altitudes then do a quick release and plunge them into an ice cube-filled cold water bath. If you’re not at a high altitude, you can cook them for less time, 5 minutes seems to be the time I’ve seen most floated around. If I’m feeling virtuous I’ll drizzle flax seed oil on my bread after toasting and I love the nutty taste it gives my avocado-topped bite. Of course, there’s nothing much better than good old buttered toast, so that’s always an option too. My avocado toasts don’t get very far without a few slices of tomato, too. But if I don’t have any on hand, I don’t sweat it. I just eat it. If you make this recipe, please let me know!
