Egg Toast

It’s always a good time for egg toast. Whether it’s breakfast, lunch, brunch or dinner it’s an easy way to eat something light and healthy. You can dress it up or keep it simple. The possibilities are endless.

For this next recipe I used Sara Lee’s Artesano Bakery Bread. It is the perfect thickness and texture for my recipe. I must say, I’m not the best egg maker in the kitchen (my daughter is a pro) so I keep it simple with a light and fluffy scrambled egg and avocado, but any style egg would be great. These bread slices can hold up to any eggs or toppings and won’t turn too soft or soggy.

I used a side of organic arugula and Campari tomatoes (our favorite) lightly dressed with olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. I quick pickled some red onions and used it to garnish along with chives and red pepper flakes for a little heat.

It’s that simple. Anything goes with egg toast!
