Egg-in-avocado breakfast sandwich

Parents always tell us to not play around with our food. But why not I say? Cool things can come out of it!

Like this:

The idea for this was inspired by a show on the Food Network, where one of the chefs placed a raw egg in the avocado hole. I went ahead and cooked mine, especially because I love cooking avocado too.

So here are the steps, but be creative! It's a sandwich, you can make it any way you want :)

Egg-in-avocado breakfast sandwich
Servings: 1
Prep time: 0 min
Cook time: 5 min
Total time: 5 min

1 slice country or sourdough bread
1 slice fat free ham
1 slice swiss cheese
1 tbsp curry yogurt dressing
1 slice (vertical) avocado
1 egg
salt and lemon pepper to taste

Heat a nonstick skillet to medium heat. Spray with nonstick cooking spray. Place the avocado slice on the heat until just browned, about 1 minute. Add the egg carefully to the center hole, letting the white spread to the outside. When the whites have set, flip over carefully. Cook as long as you'd like. I like my yolk runny, so I only left it about 30 seconds on the other side.

Toast the bread in the toaster or griddle if desired. Spread the curry yogurt dressing on it. Alternatively, you can mix about 1 tsp of yellow curry to 1 tbsp mayo and use this as a spread. Layer the ham and cheese, and top with the avocado and egg. Sprinkle salt and lemon pepper on top to taste.

If you have a small oven, you can place it in for a couple of minutes for the cheese to melt too!

This sandwich was cool and very good! I think I'm going through an avocado phase...
