Start your day off with this Breakfast Smashed Avocado Tomato Toast with Fried Poached Egg – it will keep your tummy full all morning long. I love savory breakfasts, especially ones that combine different textures and temperatures. Crunchy toast with creamy smashed avocado, topped with a warm fried or poached egg and cool juicy tomatoes are the ultimate combination. This avocado toast is packed with protein, fiber, healthy fat, vitamins and minerals.
A few weeks ago, we hosted my husband’s cousin and niece from Taiwan during their stay in the U.S. and I had the pleasure of introducing them to all sorts of new foods. Every meal was like an adventure, from granola with yogurt to barbecue chicken – foods that are so common to us, yet so foreign to them.
One morning, I made this Breakfast Smashed Avocado Tomato Toast with a Fried Poached Egg on top, inspired by something similar that I ordered from a local restaurant a while back.
In Taiwan, avocado is often served as a sweet drink, a smoothie of sorts from what our relatives told us. So, this savory breakfast with avocado was new and different. I simply smashed some avocado with a little lemon juice and sea salt, spread it on toast, topped it with a lightly fried egg, and then added a few slices of tomatoes on top. I had a batch of Sous Vide Poached Eggs in the refrigerator and lightly fried them just to firm them up a bit, but you can just fry up some eggs or use poached eggs.
Our guests really enjoyed this breakfast smashed avocado tomato toast topped with a fried poached sous-vide egg, and I loved introducing them to this new way of enjoying avocado.

Love avocado and eggs for breakfast! This looks so flavourful, Jeanette!
Laura @Petite Allergy Treats says
Avocado is one of this amazing fruits that can be great savory or sweet. Love the combos in here!
That is so true Laura – so interesting that in some cultures avocado is eaten as a sweet and in others enjoyed more as a savory.
I love avocado toast and with the eggs and tomato, this sounds perfect and exactly the kind of breakfast I would love waking up too!
Such a simple breakfast, yet so delicious! Especially with all that runny yolk.

Love love avocado! This is a very delicious and nutritious breakfast.
Glad you all like this easy recipe – I could eat this almost every day!
the egg – fried or poached?
can’t be both.
I actually did fry a poached egg, but the poached egg was prepared using a special technique called sous vide. For an easier approach, fry or poach an egg depending on your preference.

I love avocado toast and with the eggs and tomato, this sounds good and precisely the reasonably breakfast i’d love wakening too!
I made this tonight and it was delicious! Great using this as sub for breakfast. Will make again.
Kristen – so glad you enjoyed this – it’s one of my favorite breakfast foods.
Jeanette,looking forward to fixing this in the morning! My hubby is a tax account and right now I see him very little. Therefore, I like to be dure and fix a high protein, low carb breakfast. (diabetic) This am he had a low carb tortilla with avacado smashed and spread instead of mayo…a free ranged home grown egg cooked with some chunky salsa, 2 small slices of venison sausage (very lean) and some sharp cheddar. Other than the salsa, I didn’t have tomato on it. He never knows when he will get lunch or when he will get home in the evening!!!! Anything else you could suggest to give him a variety? Been trying to make sure there is flavor to go with the restricted diet. Your breakfast is much simper and would be a change up but still put it in a tortilla. He usually grabs it and heads out the door! LOL
Judy – I love your tortilla idea with salsa, venison sausage and sharp cheddar – and there’s nothing like a home grown egg! It is a busy time of year with taxes due this week. Here’s another grab and go idea that he might like: https://jeanetteshealthyliving.com/mini-crustless-asparagus-red-bell-pepper-ham-quiche/ – pack him a bunch – if he has a microwave at work, he can reheat for a minute or so.
This is exactly what I eat for breakfast every morning! Sometimes I add a bit of hot sauce in the avocado mash and I add a tiny bit of grated cheese under the egg! Such an amazing way to feel full but not bloated.
I love your additions! Thanks for sharing.
i love this breakfast, an I love avocado too…
Hi Gemma – this is so easy to make and delicious. I hope you enjoy it!
