This snack. I can’t even come up with the words you guys – I have literally been having it every day for the past week and a half and there’s no way I see myself getting tired of it any time soon. It’s filling and super flavorful but simple, and pretty much everything a good snack should be.
First of all, let me just share this: I am SO EXCITED to be working with Great Day Farms to help develop recipes and find new uses for their fantastic eggs. The product is outstanding and we used their eggs long before this partnership ever came about, but the more I’ve learned about the company the more I’ve fallen in love.
What defines Great Day Farms is not what we do, but the why behind it. We are a company that works hard to better the lives of others and demonstrate Godly principles, and we just happen to sell eggs.
Y’all know my heart and know that what I want more than anything else in the world is to love others well because God first loved me, the least deserving of his love and compassion. To find a company with a product I love and who stands behind those same principles is an amazing place to be!
OK. So boiling eggs isn’t really all that hard, but it’s one of those things that can just be kind of a pain to do at times. BUT did you know that Great Day Farms sells already boiled eggs right in the deli case? In the name of transparency I was a little hesitant to try them because I’ve only ever eaten freshly boiled eggs, but these were perfectly cooked and just so easy to use! I’ve been buying a couple packages every week and grabbing them for snacks (or using in salads) as a good, healthy protein.
And a big bonus that I just found out yesterday – Wes loves them! I didn’t realize that he would because he’s being super picky about textures these days, but after he kept grabbing at my snack I let him have some and then I didn’t have any more!
It’s hard to really call this a “recipe” because it’s just a bunch of really easy ingredients thrown together in minutes, but the result is delicious, healthy and incredibly satisfying!
3-MINUTE AVOCADO TOAST WITH HARD-BOILED EGGS
- 1 piece sprouted whole-grain bread
- 1/2 ripe avocado
- 1 Great Day Farms hard-boiled egg
- pinch of salt
- pinch of pepper
You guys, the biggest tip I can give you is this: the pepper is KEY to this snack. It brings out the flavors in all of the components, bread included, and makes it a good cohesive dish. Toast the bread to your desired doneness; I’m right in the middle of the road when it comes to toastiness of bread! While the bread is toasting, mash the avocado with the salt. When the bread is done toasting, spread with the mashed avocado. Slice the egg and place in an even layer over the avocado, and then sprinkle with the black pepper. Enjoy!
