Mashed avocado with a hint of garlic topped with a fried egg and dried cranberries in a delicious breakfast sandwich. Quick and easy to make, this mashed avocado and egg breakfast sandwich is the perfect way to start the morning on the go.
Let’s talk breakfast.
On days that I work, I’m up super early in the morning, like before the sun comes up early. I’m sure we all have experienced that at some point.
The truth is, I’m not a fan of eating right after I wake up. I have no appetite early in the morning, and I really don’t like the idea of forcing myself to eat. So instead, I make breakfast to bring with me while I take the bus to work. Sometimes it’s a yogurt, sometimes it’s a fruit, and sometimes it’s these breakfast sandwiches. I mean, avocado and egg? Love, love, love the combination. And hopefully, so will you.
Mashed avocadoes with a tiny bit of garlic powder and salt for flavor; fried egg with a yolk oozing from the center and black pepper sprinkled on top; melted shredded mozzarella cheese; sweet dried cranberries; and your favorite bagel sliced in half or slices of bread. Put them together and you have yourself a healthy but very tasty breakfast sandwich, fit to be wrapped and eaten as you make your way to work.
Not a fan of dried cranberries? Or not sure if you’ll like the flavor? Go ahead and take out the cranberries. But for me, I love the difference in flavor that both sweet and savory bring to this sandwich.
For an even healthier version of this sandwich, you can always replace the mashed avocado with the garlic edamame purée.
First, cut a large avocado in half and remove the pit. Carve out the avocado and place them into a bowl. Use a spoon to mash up the avocado until the texture is to your liking. Mix in the garlic and the salt.
Coat the bottom of a small pan with vegetable oil. It’s important to do this so that the egg doesn’t get stuck to the pan. Heat the oil over low heat for about 30 seconds. Crack an egg into a bowl and pour it carefully into the pan. This helps keep the egg together and less likely to spread. Once the egg white has turned white, the egg is ready. But if you like your egg not as undercooked, cover the pan with a lid and turn off the heat. Let the egg sit for about a minute. The yolk will have cooked a little bit but is still runny. Sprinkle the egg with black pepper.
Toast the bagel or the bread until lightly golden brown. Sprinkled shredded mozzarella cheese on one of the slices and warm the slice until the mozzarella cheese has melted.
Top the bagel slice with the mashed avocado, dried cranberries, and the fried egg.
And voila! You have a quick and easy breakfast ready to be wrapped up and carried on the go.
ill lol be bringing this to Fiesta Friday.

- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil, more as needed
- Black pepper (optional)
