Egg avocado toast?

I know it's pretty popular right now, and I had some this week end at a local place that was pretty delicious (egg was on the side though), but I was wondering how you make it so it's not too bland.

I mixed the avocado with lemon juice, salt, and pepper, sliced an hard boiled egg on top and sprinkled that with salt and paprika.

It wasn't bad, but there seems to be something missing.

Ideas?

    Garlic? Hot sauce? Mustard? Soy sauce? Combined?

    I like to hardboil the eggs and mix them with the avocado, relish, and mustard over toast or an english mufin topped with flax seed and cayenne for breakfast. It's pretty much just egg salad with avacado instead of mayo, but it's delicious and versatile. This week I also added a layer of smoked salmon (lox) and topped it with sprouts. Sometimes I like to add some black beans and red pepper.

    I like making guacamole by adding mango salsa, red bell pepper, salt and pepper, and a little lemon juice. Put that on toast with a fried or sunny side up egg on top is amazing.

    Sometimes I'll have toast with guacamole topped with a fried egg. I also tend to add hotsauce to my eggs no matter how they are prepared. Another option I like is to make a sandwich with guac, fried egg, cheese slice, and bacon.

    I saw a chef on the chew make it with a 7 grain bread spread lightly with harissa, then avocado and garnished with drizzle of honey and red pepper flakes. I don't have harissa so I use just a little tiny spread of garlic chili paste. Really good!

    Yeah I guess that hot sauce would help, I just don't like spicy foods, lol!

    Lots of good ideas here - got to try mixing eggs with avocado and salsa for sure.

    Cumin's another seasoning to try. One of my favorite restaurants (Le Pain Quotidien) adds cumin salt, olive oil and chia seeds to its avocado toast.

    No need to be so complicated.

    When I have boiled egg with toast, I only sprinkle salt on it. And when I use avocado, I only sprinkle salt on it.

    Never had avocado on toast though. I have toast at breakfast, and am much more likely to have avocado at lunch or dinner.

    If it were me I would throw the egg in the trash, get some fresh sourdough bread, spread with cream cheese, add smoked salmon/lox and then avocado.

    A) use poached eggs (or soft boiled at least!)
    B.) add Vegemite to the toast. Alternatively, a bit of feta cheese

    I had a fried egg and avocado on an English muffin for breakfast today for my meatless Friday - delicious, wasn't missing a thing!

    Get a decent, seeded wholemeal bread. A little more calorific but better for you and will keep you full for longer so worth it. Pop a slice in the toaster. Mash your avocado with salt, pepper and chilli flakes. Poach your egg - make sure your egg is super fresh, crack into a shallow dish, slide into boiling water then turn the heat off and leave covered for two minutes. Drain, leave on kitchen paper to get rid of some of the moisture while you spread the avo on the toast. Put the egg on top, cut into it, the yolk should be nice and runny. Absolutely one of my favourite breakfasts ever.

    The restaurant probably buttered the bread before toasting it, giving it a richer taste.

    I made this for my boyfriend -
    seeded bread, toasted with minced garlic, 0 cal butter spray and mozzarella cheese
    add 1/4 sliced avocado, 2 basil leaves, 2 slices beef steak tomato, a couple strings of red onion and a poached egg.
    drizzle with balsamic glaze and sprinkle salt and pepper

    About 350- 400 cals total
