Ingredients

  • 1 large avocado
  • 2 slices thick bread
  • 6 slices fresh mozzarella
  • 6-7 cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
  • 1/2 tbsp salted butter
  • 2-3 eggs
  • 1-2 tbsp milk
  • salt and pepper
  • fresh basil (for garnish)

Instructions

  1. Begin by toasting the bread. While it's toasting, melt the 1/2 tbsp of butter in a non-stick skillet on medium heat. Crack two eggs into a small bowl. Add 1-2 tbsp of milk and salt and pepper and mix to combine. Pour the eggs into the melted butter. Using a rubber spatula gently move around the eggs until they’re fully cooked through. This usually takes about 2 to 3 minutes. You never want to overcook them. You you want them to be light and fluffy. Once they're done, keep them warm on the stove. 

  2. Slice the avocado in half, remove the pit and scoop the inside of it out with a spoon into a bowl. Mash with a fork until easily spreadable. Set aside. If the mozzarella log isn't already sliced, slice it into 4-6 thick slices. Slice your cherry tomatoes in half. 

  3. By now the, toast should be done. Add a thick layer of mashed avocado to the bread followed by a generous pinch of salt. On top of the avocado, add the mozzarella slices. Next, add a generous amount of the scrambled eggs. Top with the cherry tomatoes, fresh basil and salt and pepper. 

  4. Eat while warm and enjoy!
