If you're a lover of avocado, like I am, you're always finding ways to use the delicious little fruit. This avocado-stuffed French toast is an amazing breakfast idea! —Paige

Test Kitchen Notes

This was delicious. I felt there was a LOT of avocado in each sandwich—the instructions were misleading, because it said to put 1/4 of the mashed avocado per toast... I read it as putting 1/4 of the mashed avocado, however perhaps she meant 1/4 of an avocado (a.k.a. 1/8 of the mashed mixture). I would 100% make this recipe again... and again... and again. But I would use one avocado instead of two. One piece of the French toast, along with the egg, was PLENTY to keep me full until lunch. —Victoria Ross

What You'll Need
  • 2 avocados
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 4 1 1/2 inch-thick slices of bread
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot sauce
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 eggs (poached or fried)
  1. In a small bowl, mash the avocado with with salt and pepper.
  2. Slice a horizontal slit in the bread along the longest side, all the way through to the back, trying not to cut all the way through. Stuff each piece of bread with a quarter of the mashed avocado.
  3. In a shallow, rectangular container, whisk together the eggs, milk, and hot sauce.
  4. Melt butter on a griddle over medium-low heat. Dip the sandwiches in the egg mixture for a few seconds on each side. Cook the toast until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes per side.
  5. Top with a poached or fried egg, or other avo-toast toppings you wish!

Wondering what bread would be thick enough to accomodate?
