Bacon, Avocado and Egg Open-Faced Sandwich

During the week my breakfast is pretty simple. I either eat oatmeal, make a fruit or yogurt bowl, or energize with a smoothie. (Fact: My favorite is oatmeal. Love it. I could eat it every morning finding new ways to enjoy.) But on the weekends I like to mix it up. Try new things. Occasionally splurge. Fix an elaborate brunch. Whip up some homemade waffles. Cook an omelet. Sometimes Mr. B and I satisfy our morning hunger with cinnamon toast. And some mornings we reach for the cereal box.

A few Sundays ago, I decided to spice up my simple egg, bacon and toast breakfast. I was in the mood for something different and creative when I spied the avocado. It was just sitting there on the counter, begging to be eaten, slowly passing its prime. I stood amazed that I even had an avocado left. When those beautiful green things come into my house, I consume them. Quickly. They're great in my smoothies, on a salad, or chopped up in salsa. I must have missed this little guy.

But let me give you a heads up. This breakfast sandwich is super filling. I couldn't finish. It might have been because I'm not used to a heavy breakfast (I consider this heavy), or because it was quite rich. Whatever it was, it was good eats. Therefore, I think it might make a great dinner option. Actually, just go ahead and eat this whenever you feel like it!
