Just when I think the avocado toast boat has sailed, I realize it totally hasn’t. It’s really science at this point – avocado toast is delicious. While I LOVE the dish, I almost never order it at restaurants. I just can’t bring myself to $12+ for this setup. Are those just LA prices? No matter, I also always need protein to go with it, so that usually means an egg. But then sometimes fried or poached eggs are just more than I’m ready for. Hence these amazing hard boiled egg breakfast toasts – avocado toast topped with a hard boiled egg and a variety of toppings!
Hard Boiled Egg Breakfast Toasts
Eggs have such great protein, but the time and work to make them for breakfast (or usually lunch in my case) usually aren’t compelling enough. Making a few hard boiled eggs ahead of time, however? Right up my alley. The other thing I love about these hard boiled egg breakfast toasts is that you can make one or, in this case, four at a time in just a few minutes!
Make Ahead Breakfast Idea
Obviously you can hard boil the eggs ahead of time. You can actually make the toast a little ahead of time as well. After toasting your bread, let them cool completely on a wire rack. This prevents them from getting soggy! If you’re serving a crowd (of 4 or 8 or whatever). You can mix up the avocado (see recipe below) and lay out the various toppings for everyone’s choosing.
Hard Boiled Egg Toast Toppings
The options here are pretty endless, but these four toast topping ideas are all so delicious and so easy. And don’t worry, those aren’t spicy peppers. They’re actually sliced, mini sweet peppers. It’s really a tasty topping for all that avocado!
Simple seasoning toppings include red chili flakes and dukkah seasoning. Dukkah is a Middle Eastern seasoning made of nuts, seeds, and spices. We get ours at Trader Joe’s, so it’s pretty easy to find!
And finally, the most time intensive topping combo is the lemon zest and chives. I’m secretly obsessed with chives. They have such a great flavor and require no cooking. They’re also the closest thing we can get to that onion flavor on my husband’s Low FODMAP diet, so it’s a winner all around in our kitchen!
If you just need every meal served on a lovely piece of toast, try this smoked salmon tartine, this spicy avocado toast, a tuna tartare tartine for two, some ricotta and zucchini toast, or this ceviche avocado toast! On the sweeter side, try these fig + berry burrata toasts. One loaf of bread and you’re set for the week on meals!
