Fried egg, avocado and Gruyère cheese over toast

Serves 2


  • 2 pieces whole wheat bread
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil or butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1/2 cup Gruyère cheese, shredded
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Put the bread in a toaster oven and turn on.
  2. Heat a pan over medium heat, add the oil or butter and swirl it around to coat the bottom of the pan. Crack the eggs into the pan and let them cook until the whites are completely cooked and the yolk is still runny. For sunny side up eggs, don't flip the egg when cooking. For over-easy eggs, flip once to cook on both sides.
  3. Once the toast is done, divide the avocado between the 2 slices and spread it all around (this works best when the avocado is really ripe). Add 1/4 cup of the shredded Gruyère cheese and top with the fried egg.
  4. Add salt and pepper to taste and enjoy your easy yet delicious breakfast.
