The most popular post on my blog till date has been fried egg in an avocado – a simple and quick breakfast that involves baking or frying an egg in an avocado, using the avocado as a vessel, which can be topped with bacon for a salty and crunchy texture atop the nutritional mush that lies beneath. I have to admit that I am surprised that is the most popular recipe, but it got me thinking about the combination of eggs and avocados when I was trying to empty my refrigerator last week and whip up a meal without buying any new groceries. End result – a jalapeno-cheddar toast with a guacamole spread, topped with a fried egg with feta and cilantro.
The crunchiness and heat from the jalapeno-cheddar toast goes really well with the soft texture of the egg and the acidity of the guacamole. Topped off with some salty, crumbly feta and some fresh cilantro, this turned out to be a pretty filling meal. You can fry the egg to your personal preference – I personally like the yolk a little firm, but you can also choose to have the yolk ooze out on to the toast (though it may get soggy faster that way).
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup guacamole
- 1/4 cup feta cheese, crumbled
- Cilantro, chopped
- Salt, to season
- Black pepper, to season
- Jalapeno-Cheddar bread, sliced (This is my preferred choice of bread since it goes so well with the guacamole, but if you don’t have this, any kind of bread can be used)
- 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
- Heat olive oil in a pan. Crack two eggs in the pan and let them fry.
- While the eggs are frying, toast the two slices of the bread.
- Put some guacamole on the toasted slices.
- When the eggs are fried, put them over the sliced bread and guacamole.
- Add some crumbled feta and chopped cilantro over the fried eggs.
- Season with salt and pepper.
- Serve immediately so that the toasted bread is still crisp and does not get soggy.
