Restaurant-style breakfast sandwich at home! It's quick, easy and delicious! The sliced avocado is what makes this sandwich pop and gives it a unique flavor. It is chock-full of protein, as well, so this sandwich will keep you full until lunchtime.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Crack eggs into skillet; cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Flip and cook egg until done, 2 to 5 minutes more. Transfer eggs to a plate and season with salt and pepper.

  • Spread butter onto 1 side of each bread slice.

  • Heat a skillet over medium heat. Lay bread slices in the hot skillet, butter-side down. Quickly layer Swiss cheese, 1 fried egg, Cheddar cheese, 1 fried egg, avocado, and remaining bread slice, butter-side up. Carefully flip sandwich to grill other side until golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes.

  • Remove sandwich from skillet and cut in half.

Cook's Note:

Double recipe to make two sandwiches, which would increase avocado to one full avocado vs. half. You can also use one full avocado on one sandwich if you are like me and love avocados!

Substitute sourdough bread for the Italian bread, if desired. American cheese can be used in place of the Cheddar cheese.

Delicious!! Try using Sriracha salt it gives the sandwich a hint of spice and garlic. I doused it in hot sauce but it is indulgently delicious as written. There is a slight discrepancy in step three regarding the bread. Regardless hindsight taught me that next time I will put both slices of bread -butter side up-in the same pan I used to cook the egg (without wiping it out). Then I'll flip one over layer the ingredients and top with the other bread slice butter side up. Then flip the whole sandwich. Because the sides that weren't toasted were soggy. Thank you for the recipe. Read More

This dish was bland to me. I think adding bacon would help. Read More

Used Muenster cheese instead of cheddar because my kids aren’t bug fans. It turned out great and I got two thumbs up! Will definitely be making this again. Read More

My execution of the ingredients was not very good but the end result was very tasty. I didn't have Swiss cheese, just sharp cheddar and my avocado was too ripe so I smashed it and spread it on the bread, along with the other ingredients. Both my hubby and I really liked this sandwich but the way I made it, I think it would be better as an open- faced sandwich. Definitely a good recipe to try again. Read More

Excellent sandwich! I used multi-grain sour dough bread and only one egg. Would never think to add avocado to a sandwich like this but it works really well here. I had it for lunch and it is very filling. Thanks for the easy recipe! Read More

I made it a "Three Cheese" Egg and Avocado Sandwich: I just added a third cheese (Muenster) on top of the second slice and then piled on the ingredients as instructed. It helped to hold the avocado chunks in the place too. I used whole grain wheat bread and it was killer. Read More

I used 2 slices of marble rye bread and the cheese I had on hand Monterey Jack and Vermont sharp cheddar. I fried the eggs on a griddle over my stove using my little veg oil then layered the buttered bread and layered egg cheese and avocado. It was delicious! Read More
