This Classic Avocado Toast is the perfect breakfast or post-workout meal! It is packed with protein, carbs and healthy fats to keep you feeling energized and full until your next meal.
We’re going back to the basics today! Classic Avocado Toast, smashed avocado with some salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes, crispy bacon, and a runny egg. When you are craving a full spread for breakfast but you are short on time, cooking for one or just trying to keep it a smidge healthier this is just for you!
I am a serious fan of avocado toast but this one definitely takes the cake when it comes to breakfast toast! I spread a hefty layer of avocado, then layer that with perfectly crispy bacon and top it with a beautifully runny egg. How can your day be bad when you start it with a meal like this!
Is Avocado Toast a Healthy Breakfast or Post Workout Snack?
Avocado toast is one of my personal go-to’s for a post-workout snack! The main necessities in your post-workout food are protein, carbs, and fat. This simple meal has it all!
If you are using a whole grain bread that is high in fiber, this is also the perfect meal to get your day started! It has plenty of protein and carbs to keep you full and energized, healthy fat to keep your blood sugar stable and fiber which also keeps you full until lunch!
How do I Make Classic Avocado Toast?
Making this classic avocado toast is so simple! Just cut your avocado into fourths, remembering there is a pit inside. Sometimes I use a fourth of the avocado on my toast and other times I use an entire half. It is truly up to you and the size of your avocado! After you have decided how much avocado you want, scoop it out of the flesh and into a bowl. Mash up your avocado with a fork sprinkling with salt, pepper and red pepper flakes to your desired taste. Spread your avocado mash onto your toasted slice of bread, top it with a slice of bacon cut in half and your egg. Tada! It is super simple and can completely be customized to your liking. If you aren’t a fan of runny eggs, scrambled works just as well!
