Okay… at one of the resturants that I worked at in Chicago, they used to serve this really tasty breakfast dish. They used bacon, but I prefer a good breakfast sausage. As a matter of fact, you could easily substitute the sausage with bacon, or even ham; or make it healthy, and leave the meat out altogether. So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

How To Make avocado, sausage & eggs on toast

  • 1
    Gather together all your ingredients
  • 2
    Cut the avocado in half, lengthwise, and then remove and discard the seed.
  • 3
    Chef's Note: How do you tell if an avocado is ripe? Press against the skin using your thumb. If it leaves an indentation… it's ripe. If it feels like you're pushing against a brick, it needs a few more days.
  • 4
    Scoop an area out of the avocado that’s just big enough to hold the egg yolk, and a portion of the egg white.
  • 5
    Crack the eggs into a large bowl… don’t break the yolks.
  • 6
    Cook the sausage in a pan until cooked through.
  • 7
    Remove sausage from pan, dice, and reserve.
  • 8
    Place a rack in the middle position, and then pre-heat the oven to 425f (220c).
  • 9
    Using a small serving spoon, carefully place an egg yolk into each of the avocados, and then add as much egg white as you can until the space is full.
  • 10
    Chef’s Note: Unless your avocados are huge, you’ll probably have some leftover egg whites.
  • 11
    Chef’s Tip: The trick here is in keeping the round avocados upright during the baking process. I use a large muffin tin to accomplish this.
  • 12
    Sprinkle half the salt, pepper, and mustard powder on each of the avocados, and then, to top it off, add half the cheese to each.
  • 13
    Place in the preheated oven, and then bake for 12 minutes or, if you would like the yolks a bit firmer, keep them in for 15 minutes.
  • 14
    While the eggs are baking, toast and butter two large slices of bread, and place on individual plates.
  • 15
    Lay half the diced sausage onto each slice of bread.
  • 16
    Remove the avocados from the oven, and allow to rest for 3 to 4 minutes.
  • 17
    Use a serving spoon, to gently remove the avocado/egg mixture out of the skin, and lay on top of the bread.
  • 18
    Press down slightly, until the yolk breaks, and serve immediately.
  • 19
    Chef's Note: Many times, when I make this dish, I skip the toast, and meat, pull them out of the oven, and eat them right out of the avocado skin with a spoon… YUM.
