A New Take On Avocado Toast

Refinery29 is participating in First Lady Michelle Obama's #GimmeFive challenge. To learn more, click here.

As part of her #GimmeFive Challenge, The First Lady has asked us to give her five essential ingredients that every millennial should have in her kitchen in order to prepare quick, healthy meals. We responded with our five favorite healthy ingredients: olive oil, broccoli, feta, pasta, and avocado.
Then, we asked our favorite bloggers to give us an easy, five-ingredient recipe using one of our essential ingredients.When Molly from My Name Is Yeh agreed to give us an easy recipe for avocados, we jumped out of our seats with joy. Here, she shares her avocado toast with a twist.

This dish is a grown-up version of my favorite childhood breakfast, eggs in a basket. Toasty bread with a soft-cooked egg in the middle is pretty much perfect on its own, but when it's fancied up with a smashed buttery avocado, magical things happen. It's quick to make and deliciously filling. Have it for breakfast, have it for a snack — have it anytime you want more out of your avocado toast.

Instructions
1. Cut a 2 1/2 or 3-inch circle out of your bread and drizzle both sides lightly with oil or spread both sides with a thin layer of butter.

2. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat and toast the bread and its circle on one side until brown.

3. Flip them over, and then crack the egg into the hole. Cover the pan and cook as desired.

4. Meanwhile, mash up your avocado and set aside.

5. Remove the bread and its circle from the heat and spread with avocado. Sprinkle with salt and serve. Use the little circle to sop up all the yummy, egg-yolk goodness!

Tip: When storing an avocado that's already been cut open, coat the exposed areas with a thin layer of olive oil before placing in the fridge. This will prevent the avocado from turning brown too quickly.
