Open Faced Egg and Avocado Sandwich


It’s May!

Oh, and May is National Egg Month!

We love eggs around this house. My kids go crazy for eggs.

When I was growing up the only way I ever ate eggs was scrambled. So when I met The Man he introduced me to what he calls the “dip egg.”

It’s an egg cooked whole, on a hot skillet for just a couple minutes, flipped once. Leaving the yolk runny and perfect for dipping with toast.

And that’s how my kids enjoy it.

This is how I enjoy it…

Such a quick and easy breakfast, or lunch, or dinner, or snack… whatever floats your boat.

Crack an egg onto a hot skillet.

Sprinkle with fresh cracked pepper and salt.

Carefully flip after just a minute or two, and sprinkle the other side with more salt and fresh pepper.

Toast up an English muffin and add a little butter.

I love spinach so I adorned this sandwich with a little fresh organic spinach leaf.

Slice up some fresh avocado, and throw that on top.

Grate some fresh Parmesan cheese on top and maybe just a little more salt and pepper. {couldn’t hurt}.

And there you have it!

Enjoy with a fork, or pick it up and stuff it in your mouth.

Both are completely respectable choices.

How do you prefer your eggs?
