Just when you think you've seen avocado toast in every way possible, here comes a TikTok trend that blows your mind. It’s so good that I’ve been craving this brilliant Grated Egg Avocado Toast for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I love to mix salty, sweet, and spicy flavors so here’s my take on the awesome trend that has breathed new life into a breakfast classic.
The Viral Tik Tok Recipe
The original recipe is the creation of Sarah Thomas-Drawbaugh of “Healthyish.” It’s not surprising it’s gone viral when a quick and easy breakfast idea turns out looking and tasting this good!! Her recipe calls for kewpie mayo and sriracha along with avocado and grated eggs. Sounds yumm! So excited to add this recipe to my list of FAV TikTok Recipes.
What’s So Special About Grated Egg Toast?
First of all, grating the hardboiled eggs achieves a phenomenal texture. The heap of finely shredded eggs is light, fluffy, and rich—like shredded cheese that practically melts in your mouth.
Grating also distributes the cooked egg yolks and egg whites more evenly. It’s so delicious and there’s no chalky taste or feel at all, as can sometimes happen with hardboiled eggs.
It looks impressive and gorgeous, and fun to eat! It’s also an incredibly easy and nutritious meal. Need I say more??
- Hard-boiled eggs can be made ahead and refrigerated. This makes them more firm and easy to grate. Also a great time saver in the morning!
- Sourdough bread works best for this recipe but you can also use thick-sliced multi-grain bread or other artisan bread.
- Use a cheese grater if you don’t have a microplane.
Building the Perfect Grated Egg Avocado Toast
- For this dish, I like to lay thinly sliced avocado on my favorite thick-sliced sourdough. I usually mash my avocados for toast, but I love the look of the neat slices and the silky texture against the eggs. Salt and pepper of course.
- Then I run the chilled hardboiled eggs over a microplane, as in the viral videos, and watch in delight as the impressive mound of fluffy grated eggs covers the toast.
- Next, I spice it up with salty crunchy Everything But the Bagel seasoning, a healthy drizzle of Mike’s Hot Honey, and Spicy Red Pepper Flakes. The balance of flavors is addicting!
Serve this toast immediately for the freshest tasting avocados. We love to serve it with a hot cup of ginger tea in the morning for breakfast. It also makes for a delicious after-school snack served with creamy mango lassi.
This easy breakfast recipe can be meal prepped by hard boiling the eggs a day or two before and refrigerating them. Chilled eggs are easier to grate and you will have a delicious breakfast ready in under ten minutes.
- Smash the avocado instead of slicing
- Change it up by topping the toast with easy guacamole! Simply mash avocado with grated garlic, lime juice, salt, and pepper
- Load up the toast with veggies like sliced ripe tomatoes, microgreens, scallions, or chives, and layer on top of the avocado before topping with the eggs
