Breakfast Sandwiches with Smashed Avocado

Breakfast Sandwiches are an easy grab-and-go meal.

One smashed avocado makes enough for four servings – it can be made, covered and refrigerated the night before for speedy assembly in the morning. A slice of cheddar or Swiss cheese can be added, if desired.

  1. Smashed Avocado: In a bowl, use the back of a fork to lightly mash avocado until fairly creamy, with some smaller chunks remaining. Stir in tomato, lime juice, salt, pepper and hot sauce (if using).
  2. Heat a small non-stick skillet over medium heat; brush with oil. In a separate bowl, beat eggs with 1 tsp (5 mL) water; pour into skillet. Cook, stirring, until large curds form and eggs are set, about 3 minutes.
  3. To assemble, layer 2 of the toast slices with ham; divide and mound scrambled egg on each and top with Smashed Avocado. Sandwich with remaining toast slices. (Or divide and wrap everything inside 2 wraps instead).
