Avocado toast with Eggs and Prosciutto

avocado toast Wahoo! I’m finally done with work for the next 12 days, yeah, that’s right, you heard me. We’re going on a short vacation trip to Minneapolis next week, but my hubby isn’t going to be off until next week, which means that I’d have a few days to myself. Being the nice person that I am,  I thought that I’d work on my glamourous “to-do” list for the family that just doesn’t seem to ever end: oil changes for example, I mean fun right? And catching up on things that I don’t normally get to do like the kids’ photo books, this blog (ehm!), and mailing out pictures (do post offices still exist by the way?). Doing laundry also doesn’t seem to be too bad when I’m not rushing through the loads.
avocado toast 2 This recipe that I wanted to share with you today is a really simple. It is so simple that it’s probably shouldn’t be called a recipe. This open-faced sandwich can be enjoyed anytime; and it is a winner at my house, because each member of the family can eat a portion of this sandwich. My kiddos love the eggs and prosciutto, with toasts and jam or Nutella separately. But I love mine stacked like that.  I have always loved avocados, and love eating them on everything. But buying them is pretty tricky. If you buy them too ripe, you’ll have to eat them immediately – and still run the risk of them being too ripe (and nasty!). But if you buy them too early, you’d have to watch it closely and wait until you “think” that it’s ready to be enjoyed, or if you open them too early, then you have the tough flesh that isn’t as creamy. When you do find the ripe ones though, I love eating mine with a toasted crusty bread, eggs, and prosciutto. It really just doesn’t get better than this. I put generous sprinkle of coarse salt, and even add Sriracha sometimes. Perfection on a plate!
