    I like to take a slice of whole wheat toast and top it with a quarter of a smashed California avocado (mix in a bit of salt and pepper). It should look like toast topped with some smooth guacamole. Then place a fried egg on top. Leave it a little runny if you like that. Enjoy!

    We eat avocados for breakfast almost every day…but it helps to live on a California avocado ranch and be married to the farmer! Thanks for helping to promote our wonderful California avocados!

    A BLG is what we call it in my house –
    Two pieces of white bread, two yummy slices of fried bacon, smashed up California Avocados with a pinch of salt, onion and lime. Fry an egg and place it on top. VOILA – A BLG sandwich. It’s truly delicious!

    well this might sound somewhat odd, but I take a California Avocado and smash it include salt, pepper, a hint of lime and some garlic powder and top a waffle with that mix instead of butter.

    I wish I had time to create something as this sounds like a fun little party. We do eat avocados a lot for breakfast, especially since we have given up dairy, sugar, and wheat. Avocados just add the goodness that egg dishes crave!

    A quick, super flexible egg ranchero dish

    2-3 eggs scrambled, splash of milk or 1/2 & 1/2 if I have some
    Few tbsp of salsa, black bean salsa also works
    Bit of shredded cheese if its handy
    Few slices of California Avocado, on top or smashed & mixed in
    Served on or with toast…if there’s bread in the house. You could even add some hot sauce or, my preference, sour cream.

    Thank you for hosting such a fun contest. I created and shared the Breakfast Veggie Wrap! Hope you all will like it as much as my family does. :) My family loves CA avocados, especially the kids! Yup, they certainly know the good stuff!

    second recipe I’m sharing with you is the Summer Berries, Arugula and Avocado Salad Recipe. It’s simple and refreshing. On of the most requested salad at home. :)
