I had so much fun shooting these photos.
I’d been wanting to make this avocado sandwich of a thing for a while now. I saw it on pinterest or IG months ago and the idea had stuck in my head, so it was time to make it.
I thought this was best eaten with a couple pieces of toast. While I really like avocados, I prefer to pair their smooth creaminess with something crunchy like toast. But you do you.
Do you see my whale sponge holder in the above picture? He is one on my favorite things in my house. He looks like a “Walt”. Don’t ya think?
Also. In the above photo…do you see how clean our kitchen is? I’ve talked before about how I don’t see messes and I’m not a tidy person. But for the past week we’ve had a community of sugar ants move into our kitchen and I’m trying my best to be super clean and hoping they disappear. Of course I didn’t notice the ants -bc i don’t see messes- but Andrew does see messes so he made me aware of them.
You really didn’t need to know any of that. All that was to say is YAY CLEAN KITCHEN! I really do love when it’s this clean, but I know I don’t have it in me to be tidy. It’s just not me. But for Andrew’s sanity I’m trying!
So the everything bagel topping is such a fun topping for many things other than bagels. I’ve had this idea for awhile to make a pizza with an everything bagel crust. How yum does that sound? Perhaps that’ll happen one day.
To make this everything bagel topping all the more epic I used truffle salt, which was a great idea…except now I’m out of truffle salt. But I don’t actually hate that because I’m so on the fence about truffle-y things. 70% of the time I’m like, “yes gimme the truffle things” and 30% of the time I’m like, “no, I hate truffle things.”
I think my tastebuds are trying to help me be less black and white and find the gray more often by confusing me as to if I really like truffle.
So for this recipe you mix together an everything bagel topping with dried minced garlic, truffle salt, onion powder, poppy seeds and sesame seeds. You don’t have to use truffle salt, because maybe you don’t want your entire kitchen smelling like truffle. In that case, feel free to just use a coarse salt.
I’d love to know what is something you think would be good with an everything bagel topping. I image an omelet would be insanely delish with said topping. Or some type of savory muffin. Like a muffin with an everything bagel streusel. That idea is worth trying out.
Everything Bagel Breakfast Avocado-wich
Yield: makes however much bagel topping you decide to make + one avocado-wich
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
everything bagel topping
2 parts dried minced garlic
2 parts onion powder
2 parts poppy seeds
2 parts sesame seeds
1 part truffle sea salt (or another coarse salt)
for the avocado-wich
a fried egg
hunk of cheese
In a bowl, combine all ingredients for the everything bagel topping. Slice an avocado in half and take out the pit. Peel the skin off the avocado and press it into the everything bagel topping. If the topping isn't sticking, use a fork to scrape lines into your avocado to help the topping stick. Top one side of your everything bagel coated avocado with cheese, bacon and an egg. Add other avocado half and viola! I like mine best served with toast.
