Avocado Toast with Jalapeño Fried Egg, Peachy Jalapeño Dressing & Spicy Shrimp Pasta SaladPosted:
Avocado Toast with Jalapeño Fried Egg
Turn breakfast into a healthy meal by piling crisp-edged eggs, feta, arugula, and avocado on top of Italian toast.
1 cup arugula
1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper
2 tablespoons Queen Creek Olive Mill Fresh Crushed Jalapeño Olive Oil
2 large eggs
2 slices crusty Italian bread
1 garlic clove
1 ounces crumbled feta cheese
1 medium-size ripe avocado, halved, pitted and peeled lime wedges
Toss arugula with lime juice in a small bowl; season with salt and pepper.
Heat Jalapeño Olive Oil in a medium skillet over medium-high. When the oil is hot, crack both eggs into skillet and season with salt and pepper. Oil should be bubbling around eggs from the start. Cook, rotating skillet occasionally until whites are golden brown and crisp at the edges and set around the yolk (which should be runny), about 2 minutes.
Meanwhile, Toast the bread until browned and crisp. Lightly rub 1 side of each slice with the cut side of the garlic until fragrant; discard the garlic.
Mash the avocado with a fork in a shallow bowl until chunky and stir in the feta cheese.
Divide the mashed avocado evenly among the toasts, and top with the fried eggs.
Spoon any remaining Jalapeño Olive Oil from the skillet on the eggs, and top with arugula.
