Cook's note

Double recipe to make two sandwiches, which would increase avocado to one full avocado vs half. You can also use one full avocado on one sandwich if you are like me and love avocados!

I used 2 slices of marble rye bread and the cheese I had on hand Monterey Jack and Vermont sharp cheddar. I fried the eggs on a griddle over my stove using my little veg oil then layered the buttered bread and layered egg, cheese and avocado. It was delicious!-31 Dec 2017

Used Muenster cheese instead of cheddar because my kids aren’t bug fans. It turned out great and I got two thumbs up! Will definitely be making this again.-01 Jan 2019

Wow! That was good stuff!!! Hard to find good breakfast recipes for 1. Only had swiss cheese and whole wheat bread, but still delicious! I never realized avocado would go so good in an egg and cheese sandwich.-09 Dec 2018


    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 2 large eggs
    • 1 tablespoon butter, softened
    • 2 slices Italian bread, salt and ground black pepper to taste/optional
    • 1 ounce Swiss cheese, sliced
    • 1 ounce Cheddar cheese, sliced
    • 1/2 ripe avocado, sliced
    1. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Crack eggs into skillet. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Flip and cook egg until done, 2 to 5 minutes more.
    2. Transfer eggs to a plate and season with salt and pepper.
    3. Spread butter onto 1 side of each bread slice.
    4. Heat a skillet over medium heat. Lay bread slices in the hot skillet, butter-side down. Quickly layer Swiss cheese, 1 fried egg, Cheddar cheese, 1 fried egg, avocado, and remaining bread slice, butter-side up. Carefully flip sandwich to grill other side until golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes.
    5. Remove sandwich from skillet and cut in half.
    6. Note: Double recipe to make two sandwiches, which would increase avocado to one full avocado vs. half. You can also use one full avocado on one sandwich if you are like me and love avocados! Substitute sourdough bread for the Italian bread, if desired. American cheese can be used in place of the Cheddar cheese.

    This recipe comes from Sweden, and it is quite simply over the top! The Smörgåstårta (lit. Sandwich cake) is the perfect cross between a sandwich and a cake &ndash lots of ingredients, lots of different ways to make, serve cold, share with friends. The vegan version is as delicious as it is nutritious &ndash just apply a healthy dose of avocado spread on top and you&rsquore ready to go!


    Avocado Toast Breakfast Sandwich

    This camping breakfast sandwich has it all: avocado, bacon, toast, and a fried egg. Plus, it can all be made with just a single skillet over a camp stove or campfire.

    While we love traditional avocado toast, we might just love this avocado breakfast sandwich even more – especially when we are camping.

    Not only do we get twice the creamy avocado goodness in each bite, but it’s loaded with crispy strips of bacon and a gooey fried egg!

    And it’s all put together in a portable, hand-held package that’s perfect for eating by the campfire while sipping a cup of camp coffee.

    We structured the recipe to make it as simple as possible, while also using just a single skillet. The first step is to fry up some bacon in your skillet. Doing this will render out the fat, which you will use to build the flavor profile of the rest of the sandwich. Once the bacon is done, remove from the skillet and place on a paper towel to drain.

    The next step is to use the bacon grease to toast your bread slices. Is this healthy? Hell no! Is it delicious, oh yeah! If your bacon rendered A LOT of fat, you might want to reserve some in a cup off to the side so as not to completely saturate your bread.

    While toasting, watch your bread carefully and flip as soon as it starts to toast up. The hot bacon grease really does accelerate the process. Once both sides are toasted, remove and set aside.

    Now it’s time to drop in your egg. If you reserved any bacon grease, now’s the time to add it back in. Otherwise, be sure there’s enough oil in the pan so the egg doesn’t stick. While the eggs cooks, you can start working on the avocado.

    Cut in half, remove pit, mash-up, and scoop out. Pretty easy. Depending on the size of the avocado, we spread out one half per bread slice. Once the avocado is on, it’s probably time to flip your egg.

    Once that’s done, we return to the sandwich and sprinkle on our favorite spice blend Everything But the Bagel from Trader Joe’s. Seriously, we can’t say enough good things about it!

    Then layer up the bacon, bring the egg over and you’re done.

    This recipe is great for building up a lot of flavors (bacon flavor) very quickly and delivering a fancy brunch-style breakfast sandwich at a fraction of the cost. So the next time you go camping, be sure to bring the avocado and the bacon!


    Sweetened with apples and dates, warming and delicious and the perfect thing to get you out of bed on a cold winter’s morning.

    I still couldn't believe that the eggs had come out of the microwave, and they tasted deliciously creamy as well — especially with the cheddar cheese mixed in.

    The thick-cut bacon was also the perfect choice for this sandwich. Its crispy texture contrasted nicely with the fluffy eggs, and it served as the perfect base with the avocado.

    But I do think Garten's recipe could use just a bit more oomph. I recommend adding a bit more cheddar cheese — and some hot sauce if you like heat — to elevate the flavors even more.


    Smashed Avocado Bacon Breakfast Sandwiches

    Smashed Avocado Bacon Breakfast Sandwiches – delicious healthy breakfast sandwiches. Poached eggs, smashed avocados, turkey bacon, cheddar cheese, all the makings of a most delicious breakfast sandwich.

    Well it’s all over now, Valentine’s day and my birthday. I’m glad! I’m officially one year older, and I’m not going to tell you how old I am. There was a time when I didn’t use to care. Now I do, funny how that works. I hate getting old and I know we all do, nobody wants to get older but there’s nothing we can do about it.

    My husband is a sweetheart. He got me these beautiful purple tulips for Valentine’s day and I love the color so much I just had to take a picture of them and share them with you here. Aren’t they gorgeous?

    Anyway back to my breakfast sandwich recipe. This sandwich is to die for. My husband and I made these together and they’re so good we made a couple for each of us. Yes I know we’re pigs but they are healthy, I mean we’re talking smashed avocados, poached eggs, turkey bacon, yeah the healthy kind, and delicious cheddar cheese on whole wheat rolls. Am I right or am I right? Delish!!

    The smashed avocado is really simple to make, you simply smash a couple avocados with your fork, drizzle with some lime juice just so they don’t turn brown, and season with salt and pepper. Couldn’t get any easier. And the great thing about smashed avocados is that you could literally put them on any sandwich you make. Total nutrients boost.

    And bacon…oh how I love bacon, but it’s good bacon, it’s turkey bacon. Have you ever tried it? It tastes almost like the real thing, but leaner, but the salty bacony flavor is there, which is what we love about bacon. So easy to crisp up too, this is how I do it. I cover a baking sheet with aluminum foil, place a cookie rack over it, and nicely arrange my bacon on the rack. Then I place it in the oven and bake it for about 20 minutes at 400 F degrees. After 20 minutes you have nice crispy delicious bacon and no cleaning required. Just throw out the aluminum foil. I’m all about easy and less dish washing.

    Poached eggs. You don’t have to poach your eggs here, you can fry them, boil them, hey whatever strikes your fancy. I wanted my eggs poached so I poached them. Easy peasy. Boil some water. You can add a bit of vinegar if you wish, the vinegar will help set the egg whites as you drop the egg in the boiling water, but some say the vinegar adds a flavor to the eggs so you can skip it. So carefully drop an egg in the boiling water, wait about 3 minutes then using a slotted spoon, spoon out the egg. And that’s all she wrote.

    All that’s left to do is to assemble your sandwiches, smashed avocado, cheese, bacon, egg, season with salt and pepper and enjoy my friends. It’s a good breakfast.
