Avocado and Fried Egg Sandwich

Marathon training was very time consuming, and often took away from my passion of cooking. I am glad to say that training is over and the Holidays are among us! I can't wait to dive back into the kitchen and share new recipes with you. 

Until then, I thought I would share a sandwich I made on one of those long training nights. Towards the end of the training schedule, the runs got further and longer, meaning dinner options had to be quick. Eggs were often my solution for this. They are quick, healthy and very filling. Not to mention, they provide the protein needed to recover muscles after a long run.

I dove right in, then remembered I needed to take a picture!

This sandwich was quite enjoyable and inspired by one I recently had in Austin. Toast your favorite bread (gluten or sans gluten), slice ripe avocado, fry two eggs, schmear pepper jelly or favorite condiment on the bread and assemble. I didn't include cheese because I was doing no dairy the weeks before the race, but I bet a slice of Swiss would be delightful on this bad boy!

Avocado and Fried Egg Sandwich

Yields: 1 serving
Prep Time: 5 min
Cook Time: 2-4 min

2 slices bread, toasted
1/2 ripe avocado, sliced
2 eggs
pepper jelly or onion jam (or caramelized onions)
lettuce or fresh spinach
mayonnaise, mustard, cheese (optional toppings)

Toast 2 slices of bread and prep all of the condiments and sandwich components for assembly.

Heat a medium non-stick skillet over medium heat. Once the pan is hot, melt a little bit of butter in the pan. Crack two eggs into the pan, being careful not to burst the yolk.

After about a minute, flip the eggs over gently to fry the other side, again being careful not to disturb the yolk. Cook the egg to desired firmness. I like a runny yolk since I don't use mayo or cheese on my sandwich.

Place the fried eggs, avocado and other sandwich components onto the toasted bread, slice in half and devour!

Go crazy and try a new condiment, like Stonewall's Kitchen Roasted Garlic Onion Jam or a Seven Pepper Jelly. Or even, a pesto or olive tapenade.
