This is about as easy as it gets, folks.

Yes, we’re having eggs and toast for dinner but don’t worry, this isn’t your every day run-of-the-mill fried eggs over wheat toast situation.

We’re making fast and easy “refried” beans and spreading them over a slice of toasted baguette, then topping those beans with ripe tomatoes, creamy avocado, and a perfectly fried egg.

Okay, here’s the deal: I can’t do fried eggs. I’ve tried, I really want to, but I just can’t. I find them repulsive.

So if you or your kids are like me and fried eggs aren’t your thing either, just top your toast with scrambled eggs, or sliced hard-boiled eggs, or leave the eggs off all together.

Or…

If you just looked at that picture up there and rolled your eyes because you just know your kid would never eat that, then just save this one for weekend brunch for you and your honey.

Serve your eggs and toast with some simply dressed mixed greens or a bagged salad and call it dinner.

This dinner comes together super fast and for just a few simple ingredients, it’s surprisingly filling too.

I’m sharing my method for what my husband considers perfectly cooked fried eggs but obviously, feel free to cook your eggs however you please.

 

 

 

Fried Eggs on Toast with Easy Refried Black Beans, Avocado, and Tomato

  • Servings: 2-4
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

 

Ingredients:

1/4  of a baguette

1/2 can of black beans with liquid

1/2 a green onion, the white part – diced

chipotle pepper, minced

cumin

avocado

tomato

1 egg per person

mixed greens

dressing of your choice

 

Directions

Drizzle a little extra virgin olive oil or veg oil into a sauce pot set over medium low heat and add the chipotle pepper and green onion. Saute until tender.

Add beans and mash with a fork or potato masher (my weapon of choice). You don’t need to get the mixture completely smooth.

Add cumin, salt, and pepper to taste. Remove from heat.

Thinly slice baguette on the bias so you have nice large slices and lightly toast the slices.

Set a small frying pan over medium-low heat, spray with non stick spray, and add a little pat of butter.

Crack an egg into a bowl.

Once the pan is hot, add the egg and cover the pan immediately.

Check the egg after a couple of minutes. The white should be completely set but the yolk should still be nice and runny.

While the egg cooks, spread the beans onto the toast. Top with thinly sliced tomato and avocado, season with salt and pepper. Slide fried egg on top.

*It’s not as pretty but this situation is actually much easier to eat if you mash the avocado and then add it to the toast so I suggest going that route.

Serve with lightly dressed mixed greens.

Win at dinner… or brunch.
