Fried egg sandwiches are one of my favorite foods. Not only are they delicious, but they have great sentimental value for me. My Grandma and Grandad both made them for me when I was young. My mom made them for me (and occasionally still does). It was one (if not THE) first foods I cooked for myself. And now, whether I’m dieting or not dieting, sad or happy, it’s one of my favorite things to make. Breakfast, lunch or dinner. I don’t eat them every day, but when I do, I enjoy every single bite.
At my favorite fruit stand today, I discovered a new thing, a Bacon Avocado! Now you, like me, may be all excited about the seeming hybrid of bacon and avocado, but alas, that is not the case (although that would be awesome). They are just named after somebody named Bacon who discovered them. But, although they have nothing to do with actual bacon, they are really, really delicious! Very creamy and good. And more importantly, they paired beautifully with a fried egg on my sandwich.
My mom might be appalled that I’m messing with the traditional fried egg sandwich, but then again, she’s an avocado fan, so she may go for this one.
Fried Egg and Avocado Sandwich
2 pieces good bread (I prefer rye or sourdough)
1-2 large eggs
1 tsp. mayonnaise (optional)
Salt & pepper
Heat small skillet over medium heat. When pan is hot, rub the surface with a bit of olive oil or butter. Break egg(s) into pan. Sprinkle with a bit of salt and pepper. Cook a minute or two on each side, until they are done to your liking. I like mine over easy, still yolky in the middle.
While the eggs are cooking, smear a little mayo on the bread if you like that sort of thing. Slice up the avocado and spread out on one side.
Gently place the egg on top of the avocado, top with the other piece of bread and dive into bliss!
