Eating My Way Through the Alphabet: Letter A

What’s Cooking in Gail’s Kitchen? The Chow Down: Avocado Breakfast Toast! Nothing looks more appealing in the morning than an open face breakfast sandwich, in my opinion. Avocado and salmon step things up a notch when paired with a nice yolk-drenched piece of artisan toast. I love French butter, but if you choose to omit slathering the toast with it, Iโ€™ll understand. My husband and I donโ€™t mind a little taste sensuality in the morning. You choose. 
AVOCADO BREAKFAST TOAST
Ingredients:

2 slices artisan bread, toasted

1-2 tablespoons sea salt butter

1 avocado; halved, pitted, peeled, and chopped

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1/8 teaspoon garlic powder

2 eggs, cooked over easy or poached 

1/2 cup grilled salmon, flaked

1 teaspoon capers

Pinch Herbes de Provence 

Fresh thyme for garnish
Instructions:

Take the chopped avocado and mash it until chunky. Fold in the lemon juice and garlic powder. Set aside. Toast bread as desired. Spread with sea salt butter and keep warm. Cook the eggs over easy so the yolks are still runny. Place one piece of buttered toast on a plate. Spoon a thick layer of avocado over toast. Next divide flaked salmon between the two servings. Sprinkle with capers. Place one egg on top. Garnish with Herbes de Provence and fresh tarragon.

  1. I love avocados with any meal. My daughter in law uses them in making chocolate cake, instead of oil or butter. It is a natural thickener! I love it on chips, sandwiches and on toast! Thank you for reminding me of this, dear Gail! xo ๐Ÿ’ ๐Ÿ˜Š โค
