Heaven on a Slice of Toast....

Actually....I think the toast is part of the heaven.....maybe I need a new title for this post...LOLS. Since I saw this recipe on the Bon Appetit site 3 weeks ago, I have been thinking about making it....it just looked so amazing and delicious...and boy...it sure did live up to expectations!

The toast was crunchy and I brushed it with the Lime Olive Oil I bought in Pittsburgh and popped it in a 350 degree oven for about 15 minutes.  The oil gave it a delicious delicate lime flavor (without the tartness) and aroma.

I "cheated" a little and I bought the guacamole from Trader Joes and it was delicious!!

The eggs were buttery and creamy...I didnt cook them quite all the way so they are a little tiny bit runny, but really good.

The salmon adds that smoky savory flavor to the sandwich....This is definitely one of the best sandwiches I have had in a looooong time!

The eggs and guacamole and toast were soooo good by iteself, I think next time I might do it without the smoked salmon (since smoked salmon is a little bit expensive). Give this a try and stay consumed! :)


3 Tbsp. minced fresh chives, divided
2 Tbsp. crème fraîche (optional, but it really does add to the creaminess of the eggs)
6 large eggs
2 Tbsp. (1/4 stick) unsalted butter
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 large or 8 small slices sourdough, whole wheat, or pumpernickel bread, toasted
1 avocado, halved, pitted, peeled, and diced
1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
4 oz. thinly sliced smoked salmon

  1. Whisk 2 Tbsp. chives, crème fraîche (if using), and eggs in a large bowl. 
  2. Melt butter in a large heavy nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. 
  3. Add egg mixture and season with salt and pepper. 
  4. Cook, occasionally scraping bottom of skillet with a heatproof spatula to form large, soft curds, until just barely set, 3-4 minutes. Set aside.
  5. Place 2 slices toast on each plate. 
  6. Put avocado into a bowl, mash with a fork, and season with lemon juice, salt, and pepper. 
  7. Spread mashed avocado over each slice of toast. 
  8. Spoon eggs over avocado. 
  9. Drape salmon slices over eggs
  10. Garnish with remaining 1 Tbsp. chives, and season to taste with pepper.


  1. Haha, that's practically all of my favorite foods in one place! I love guacamole on sandwiches. Love bread, LOVE eggs, LOVE smoked salmon too :-) I would just need some french fries with that & I'd be good...
