Trending lately on social media is a fascination with Avocado Toast. There is a reason why I have not posted a version of this mysterious concoction, mainly because it honestly sounded awful. I love avocados, but never thought to combine them with bread, eggs, salsa, or any of the other crazy combinations out there in cyber world... At least that was until recently.
As I was tooling around for salsa recipe ideas, I ran across yet another reminder of this trend. Despite my reluctance to try avocado toast, my curiosity finally got the best of me. Determined to make this layered, green obsession with our products, I put my big girl pants on and started creating. I adorned a humble piece of toast with creamy avocado seasoned with Cherchies® Chardonnay Lime & Cilantro, fluffy scrambled eggs, and a dollop of Cherchies® Black Bean & Corn Salsa. Within minutes, this masterpiece was finished.
Wow! Talk about a flavor party in my mouth! I cannot believe I procrastinated all this time to make avocado toast!!! Seriously friends, if you have reservations about avocado toast, let me debunk any concerns because it is delicious and addicting! (In fact, I may eat it for breakfast or as a snack forever:). So the next time you want to switch things up from your usual routine, grab some bread, avocados, eggs, and salsa, and create this healthy breakfast, lunch, or snack. It only takes minutes, and you will not be disappointed!

- 1-2 slices whole grain bread (In this picture we used two slices of Gluten Free Artisan Bread. They were smaller in size, so feel free to use a slice of your favorite bread)
- 1/2 ripe avocado, mashed
- 1 Tablespoon olive oil
- 1/2 teaspoon (tsp) fresh lime juice
- 1/2 teaspoon Cherchies® Chardonnay Lime & Cilantro Seasoning
- 1 Tablespoon butter
- 2 eggs slightly beaten
- 1 teaspoon chopped fresh cilantro (optional)
- 2 teaspoons (tsp) Cherchies® Black Bean & Corn Salsa (or Cherchies® Vidalia Onion Peach Salsa)
Cut an avocado in half and score one half of the avocado with a knife. Scoop out the avocado with a spoon into a small bowl. Add lime juice, Cherchies® Chardonnay Lime & Cilantro Seasoning, mix and set aside. Tightly cover the other avocado half with plastic wrap and place in refrigerator.
Toast the bread in a toaster. While the bread is toasting, in a small bowl, beat two eggs. Turn the skillet on low, and cook the eggs, stirring occasionally until the eggs are cooked through.
On a small plate, begin layering the toast with the avocado, scrambled eggs, salsa, and garnish with the chopped cilantro (optional).
And voila! Your healthy, tasty, treat awaits you! Dig in!
