Avocado Egg Salad

Looking for an easy breakfast idea that's perfect for St. Patrick's Day?  Look no further!  Today I'm going to be sharing one of my favorite (and easiest) breakfast ideas.  I absolutely love avocado toast and was all over that craze last year.  I'm hoping that it's still going strong because I'm not getting over it any time soon!  This version is more hearty and filling, but every bit as creamy and delicious.  It may not be easy being green, but it sure is easy to make and devour this avocado egg salad!


1 hard boiled egg
1 avocado
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
Juice of 1 lemon
1/2 teaspoon paprika
Salt and Pepper
2 Slices of Bread



1.  Mash egg and avocado.  I used an egg mashing tool, but you could also use a food processor or dice very fine.


2.  In a bowl, mix mashed egg and avocado, mayonnaise, lemon juice, and seasonings.  If you like the toppings more chunky, mix until all of the ingredients are just combined.  If you like it more smooth, mix thoroughly.



3.  Spread mixture over two slices of bread.  Top with more pepper and paprika if you'd like!


What are you doing for St Patrick's Day?
Do you also love paprika?  I have to say that it's one of my favorite seasonings!  When I was in Hungary a few years ago, I picked up a few of the little pouches of paprika you see above.  Our tour guide laughed at me and said one of those pouches wouldn't last a day in a Hungarian kitchen!
What is your favorite avocado toast recipe?

  4. I've made a similar avocado egg salad a few times, but always had it for dinner, not breakfast. But, I guess I've also been known to eat spaghetti & meatballs for breakfast, or a salad, so I don't think there's anything stopping me.

    PS. That little mixing animation is so neat!

  5. Oooh, look at you so fancy with that last image!! How cool! And I've never thought of pairing egg salad + avocado but the textures are so similar. It seems like a perfect match! Great idea and it looks delish!

  12. You know, growing up in Mexico, Avocado has always been one of my FAVORITE things to eat, we put it in sandwiches, tacos, eat it with rice, with soups, well, with everything! But the concept of avocado toast just baffles me. But I do love the idea of making it into an eggsalad...or a potato salad, or maybe on it's own, scooped out with a spoon... yeah... I'm hungry now! Thanks for the suggestion!
