Bacon dust… Check!

I only think it could be more on trend if I made sweet potato toast instead of using bread. I totally dig that since it would be Paleo and Whole30 complaint but I think that was soo much trendiness for me.

Anyway, I think that taking time to eat a good breakfast needs to be trendy. Yes, let’s make that on trend. Let’s embrace the hygge and take time to enjoy breakfast.

No, you can’t do that on a busy morning as you try to chug your smoothie and coffee (almost at the same time) as you hustle your kid out the door, before you have to run back in at least 3x because you keep forgetting stuff.

*Side note… my almost 3 year old kid now yells “Hustle! Hustle! Hustle!” as we run across the parking lot at daycare in the mornings. Awesome…

But for the weekends, let’s be cozy in our PJ’s with a big cup of coffee and an great breakfast.

September is National Breakfast Month so what better way to celebrate that than with some eggs. I think eggs make a wonderful breakfast since you need to take the time to cook them and sit down to eat them. I think there is a bit of hygge in that.

I used Nellie’s Certified Humane Free Range Eggs for this toast. I use Nellie’s eggs for everything since they have such a great quality and taste. You can even see the difference when you compare their eggs with other store-bought eggs. 

Eggs are so versatile, lending themselves to a variety of creative breakfast recipes. Besides that, they are also a delicious source of protein.

I pick Nellie’s eggs for my family since it’s so important to me to pick eggs that are healthy for us from a brand that really cares about their hens. They stick to standards you can trust since they are Certified Humane Free Range.

Besides using awesome eggs, you need to use a smokey bacon to make the most amazing bacon dust. Yes, I said bacon dust.

It’s magical.

It takes some time to prepare but it’s worth it. I swear.

Breakfast will never be the same again.

  • 4 slices of Hawaiian Bread
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 ripe avocado

  4. Add bacon to a food processor and pulse until you have a very fine, powdery texture.
  5. When you are ready to make the assemble your breakfast, begin by toasting the slices of bread.
  6. Mash your avocado. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  7. In a skillet over medium heat, add 1 Tablespoon bacon fat. Cook your eggs sunny side up or over easy. Transfer to a paper towel lined plate to remove excess grease.
  8. Add the mashed avocado to the toast. Then place the eggs on the avocado.
  9. Sprinkle the bacon dust on the cooked eggs. Add chopped scallions and lemon zest.
