Breakfast is a very special meal in my home and not just because I have a fondness for eggs.  I love a lazy Saturday and Sunday brunch, leisurely eaten at home with countless cups of fresh coffee.  As much as I try to vary my meals, my go-to is always avocado toast with an egg.  It’s a combination that never gets old and has countless combinations.  This time, I added frisee, and a great whole-grain mustard for some extra tang.

Avocado Toast with Egg & Frisee | Julia Gartland for Camille Styles


  • 4 slices bread, toasted
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1 cup Frisee
  • 4 tablespoons Stoneground Dijon Mustard
  • 2 organic eggs


1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spread 1 tablespoon of mustard over each piece of toast. Then, layer a quarter of an avocado to each slice topped with a small bunch of frisee. Set aside.

2. In a large cast iron skillet, add 2-3 tablespoons olive oil. Heat pan over medium heat and carefully crack two eggs into the pan. Use a silicon spatula to shape your eggs. Cook just until the whites set, and transfer to the oven for 5 minutes or until egg white is opaque, but yolk is still runny.

3. Transfer egg atop toast. Season with coarse sea salt and freshly ground pepper. Break yolk and enjoy!

    That’s my go to favorite go to meal as well. But I add sliced raw onion and cayenne.:)

  15. AbFab says:

    Sounds delicious! I usually have arugula around the house so I might try it with that. Do you use two pieces of toast per egg? The recipe calls for two eggs and four pieces of toast…I think I might do a 1/1/ ratio instead.
