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

Step-by-Step

  • 1Gather together all your ingredients
  • 2Cut the avocado in half, lengthwise, and then remove and discard the seed.
  • 3Chef'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.
  • 4Scoop an area out of the avocado that’s just big enough to hold the egg yolk, and a portion of the egg white.
  • 5Crack the eggs into a large bowl… don’t break the yolks.
  • 6Cook the sausage in a pan until cooked through.
  • 7Remove sausage from pan, dice, and reserve.
  • 8Place a rack in the middle position, and then pre-heat the oven to 425f (220c).
  • 9Using 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.
  • 10Chef’s Note: Unless your avocados are huge, you’ll probably have some leftover egg whites.
  • 11Chef’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.
  • 12Sprinkle half the salt, pepper, and mustard powder on each of the avocados, and then, to top it off, add half the cheese to each.
  • 13Place 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.
  • 14While the eggs are baking, toast and butter two large slices of bread, and place on individual plates.
  • 15Lay half the diced sausage onto each slice of bread.
  • 16Remove the avocados from the oven, and allow to rest for 3 to 4 minutes.
  • 17Use a serving spoon, to gently remove the avocado/egg mixture out of the skin, and lay on top of the bread.
  • 18Press down slightly, until the yolk breaks, and serve immediately.
  • 19Chef'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.
  • 20Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
