Egg In A Hole Avocado Toast – Slathering warm egg in a hole toast with a creamy chive and lime-scented avocado spread is beyond DELICIOUS!! This Avocado toast with egg is EASY, ready in 15 minutes and perfect ANYTIME!!

Egg in a Hole – A Classic!

Egg in a hole is one of the oldest ways to prepare eggs and toast. I think mothers everywhere have made it at least once. Or 726 times. But egg in a hole is fun, never goes out of style, and the extra bread round is always a highly coveted item.

Avocado Toast with Egg – Better than Classic?

And in case you missed it, avocado toast seems to be one of the trendiest ways to eat toast.

For my birthday dinner this year I went out to a swanky restaurant downtown San Diego and ordered two orders of (very overpriced) avocado toast and fought over every last bite with my family. The birthday girl won, but I digress.

Since I love avocados, you don’t have to twist my arm to eat them in any way, shape, or form. But, they’re especially good on avocado toast. The warm toast softens the avocado and makes them even creamier. So what happens when you marry egg in a hole with avocado toast?

How to Make Avocado Toast with Egg

For this easy egg in a hole recipe mashup, I married what’s old and what’s new. This easy, 15-minute creation is the most delicious and satisfying breakfast, lunch, snack, or brinner. A soft runny egg yolk with bread that’s lightly buttered and golden browned before smearing it with lime and chive-scented avocado. So scrumptious and I have literally made it every day for the past week because my daughter begs for it daily.

For the ingredients, I went to my local San Diego Albertsons store and before I went to the store I downloaded the newly launched just for U. It’s an easy-to-use mobile savings tool and I love that there are no coupons to clip.

Egg-In-A-Hole Avocado Toast

For this easy recipe that’s ready in 15 minutes I married what’s old and what’s new and this creation is the most delicious and satisfying breakfast, lunch, snack, or brinner. A soft runny egg with bread that’s lightly buttered and golden browned before smearing it with lime and chive-scented avocado. So scrumptious.

Did you make this recipe?


  • 1 medium ripe avocado, peeled and seeded
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice, or to taste
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons fresh chives, finely minced
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt, or to taste
  • 3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 slices artisan-style bread (thicker bread works best and is sometimes called ‘Texas toast’ or ‘French toast’ toast)
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste


  1. To a medium bowl, add the avocado, lime juice, chives, kosher salt, freshly ground black pepper, coarsely mash the avocado with a fork and toss with a fork to combine (I prefer to keep mine on the chunkier side); set aside.
  2. Cut a 2.5 to 3-inch circle from the center of each bread slice with a cookie cutter or glass.
  3. To a large non-stick skillet, add the butter, and heat over medium-low heat to melt.
  4. Add the bread, bread rounds, and cook until golden brown on the first side, about 1 to 2 minutes.
  5. Flip everything, crack one egg into the hole of each piece of bread, and season eggs with salt and pepper. Cover pan and cook until eggs are as set as desired, about 3 to 6 minutes. The bread rounds will cook faster than the eggs (in about 1 to 2 minutes); remove them from the skillet as soon as they’re golden browned and place on a plate. Remove egg-in-a-holes and place on the plate.
  6. Evenly spread the avocado mixture over the bread and bread rounds and serve immediately. Recipe is best warm and fresh.
