Triple-Layer Avocado “Toast”

March 6th, 2019 | no comments

This recipe was inspired by a breakfast that I recently enjoyed at a local restaurant: avocado toast with egg and sausage.  It was so full of flavor and nutrition, but I knew I could boost the wholesomeness just a little more by substituting sweet potato slices for the bread.

Add a little lemon juice to the mashed avocado and you can prepare this ahead of time, then just heat and enjoy!

I used organic, free-range eggs and Pederson’s Breakfast Sausage— free from preservatives (including nitrites and nitrates), antibiotics and hormones, this sausage is fully cooked and made with no added sugar or artificial ingredients. Another tasty breakfast sausage is Applegate Naturals Chicken & Apple Breakfast Sausage Patties. 

I like to add a couple squirts of hot sauce for a little extra spice and serve it with a side of fresh berries.

  • 1 large sweet potato (you will have leftovers) sliced lengthwise into 1/4" thick slices
  • 1/4 large avocado, peeled, seeded, and mashed
  • Sea salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 breakfast sausage patty, heated I like Pederson's or Applegate Naturals
  • 1 large organic, free-range egg
Instructions
  1. Place sweet potato slices in toaster or toaster oven on high for two to three cycles. You can also bake in the oven on a baking sheet at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until tender (but still a bit firm).
  2. Lay two sweet potatoes on a plate or small oven-safe container. Season mashed avocado with sea salt and pepper (mix in a sprinkle of fresh lemon juice if planning to eat at a later time) and spread on top of sweet potato slices. Top with cooked sausage patty.
  3. To cook egg sunny-side up, heat a teaspoon of Kerrygold butter or coconut oil in a small frying pan over medium heat. Crack egg in a small bowl or ramekin and add to pan. Cover with a tight lid and cook until the whites are completely set but the yolks are still runny (about 2 to 2 1/2 minutes). Slide the egg out of the skillet onto sausage patty. Season with fresh ground pepper and salt to taste. Add a dash or two of hot sauce if you'd like! Yum 🙂

Open-Face Salmon & Avocado Apple “Sandwich”

May 31st, 2018 | no comments

This may look like lunch, but believe it or not, I’ve been eating it for breakfast and can’t believe how nourished and satisfied I feel afterwards.

Yes, I know what you’re thinking: Salmon for breakfast Melanie? Really?!

Hey, don’t knock it till you try it. Savory breakfasts tend to be more satiating because they usually contain some sort of protein, like eggs. Since I’m always trying to mix things up (and because on this particular morning we barely had any food in the house), I came up with this simple recipe that works for breakfast or lunch.

The recipe calls for only five ingredients: Wild Planet Canned Salmon (could also sub Wild Planet Tuna or hard boiled egg), chickpeas, full-fat plain Greek or Icelandic yogurt, avocado, and apple. Whatever you do, please don’t be tempted to use fat-free yogurt (blah!). The creaminess of the avocado really comes through better in the presence of whole milk yogurt. If dairy-free, you could substitute plain coconut yogurt.
