Avocado Mixture

1 medium (1/2 cup) avocado, pitted, peeled

2 tablespoons chopped red onion

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon pepper


3 to 4 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

4 large Land O Lakes® Eggs

8 (about 4 1/2x3-inch) slices Italian bread

8 (2x1/4-inch) slices ripe tomato

4 (3/4-ounce) slices Land O Lakes® Provolone Cheese

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Combine avocado, onion, salt and pepper in bowl; mash with fork until well mixed. Set aside.

  2. STEP 2

    Melt 1 teaspoon butter in 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat until sizzling. Break 2 eggs into pan; break yolks with spatula. Cook 2-3 minutes or until set on bottom. Turn eggs over; continue cooking until eggs are cooked through. Remove eggs from pan. Cover; keep warm. Repeat with 1 teaspoon butter and remaining 2 eggs.

  3. STEP 3

    Spread 1 tablespoon avocado mixture onto 1 side of each bread slice. Top 1 slice bread, spread-side up, with 1 fried egg, 2 slices tomato and 1 slice cheese. Place 1 slice bread, spread-side down, over cheese. Butter outside slices of bread with about 1 teaspoon butter each.

  4. STEP 4

    Place 2 sandwiches in same skillet; cook over medium heat, turning once, 2-3 minutes or until golden brown on both sides. Repeat with remaining 2 sandwiches.

Tip #1

FDA guidelines for safe handling instructions recommend cooking eggs until white and yolk are firm.

Tip #2

To prevent avocado from browning, prepare avocado mixture just before assembling sandwiches.
