Forget tortilla chips! Seeded whole grain bread, toasted to its full potential, is avocado’s real soulmate. After a lifetime of knowing this power couple, I decided to throw some subtle spice and acid their way to better complement the healthy fats, especially when an egg is involved. Works the same if you skip the egg and make it vegan!
Toast bread on the highest setting until dark golden brown all over.
Heat a small pan over medium heat. Brush oil onto the hot pan and crack in the egg. Sprinkle sea salt, black pepper, and pepper flakes on top. Cover and cook until whites are set and yolk is still runny, about 3 minutes.
Scoop avocado onto the toast and spread evenly. Squeeze some lemon juice on top. Season with salt, black pepper, and red pepper flakes. Top with fried egg; pierce the yolk and spread it around. Squeeze in more lemon juice to taste and cut avocado toast in half for optimal enjoyment.
