Nutrition Facts
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 tsp (1.25 mL) each salt and pepper (approx.)
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) olive oil
  • 1/2 ripe avocado, peeled, pitted and sliced

Instructions

  1. Whisk together eggs, salt and pepper. In non-stick skillet, heat oil over medium-low heat; pour in egg mixture. Cook, stirring constantly, until eggs are creamy and softly set, approximately 5 minutes.

Notes

Alfalfa sprouts are widely known, but try others, such as hemp, radish, or pea sprouts.

Add a drizzle of your favourite hot sauce for a little spice to your morning sandwich.
