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?

    1. Thanks Asiya! It’s not easy at times, but my kids are used to it now. Once they see the camera they know to give me a few minutes before digging in! LOL
