Sweet Potato Toast with Avocado and Egg


If there is one food that I love and that is perfect for getting things done, it is Sweet Potato Toast with Avocado and Egg.

I’ve shown similar recipes here before and also told you about them on social networks… But this Sweet Potato Toast with Avocado and Egg has a special touch and gives me great pleasure when I eat it. 😀

Lately, I’ve been buying a lot of organic fruits and vegetables.

Not exactly because they are organic, but because they are from the farm of a person I met recently.

I know they are good fruits and vegetables, well treated and free of toxic products, full of nutrients, and good for our bodies.

And that is why avocados, homemade eggs, and sweet potatoes are never missing from my kitchen. Oh, and cherry tomatoes are always around, too.

Not to mention that their combination is beyond perfect!

I was talking to Marcia, from Argas Seasoning, and commenting that I didn’t feel like cooking, much less thinking about what to make for lunch.

So I told her: “oh, I even have sweet potatoes and avocado in the fridge. And eggs.”

To which she replies, “how about some sweet potato toast with poached eggs?”

Sure! My favorite recipe, which is super easy! I really didn’t feel like it, but it immediately whetted my appetite. ahah

Aiiii this toasted sweet potato with avocado and egg… guys, it’s a WONDER!!!

And conversation after conversation, I decided to take the hollandaise sauce recipe from Márcia’s book and put it on top of the eggs. It was so delicious, it is all I can tell you!!!

How do you make this Sweet Potato Toast with Avocado and Egg?

Similarly to sweet potato toasts from the recipe I posted long ago, it is possible to make this toasted sweet potato with avocado in the toaster oven.

But since I like to add seasonings, I put them in the oven, which is much easier to clean.

I’ll explain everything below.

For this recipe you’ll need:

  • Sweet Potato
  • Avocado
  • Cherry Tomato
  • Eggs
  • Olive oil
  • Paprika
  • Turmeric
  • Cumin powder
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Chili flakes
  • Butter
  • Vinegar

Please pay attention to:

For the sweet potato:

  • As I said earlier, I put the sweet potato in the oven because I like to season it. But you can put it in the toaster oven.
  • If you put the sweet potato in the oven, you should dry it before baking, so it will be crispier / less mushy.
  • You should season the sweet potato with the help of a brush so that it holds the seasonings well and doesn’t get too greasy.

For the avocado:

  • If the avocado is not quite ripe, mash it up with the help of something more powerful, like a blender or food processor.
  • If it is ripe, just use a fork.
  • You can use any tomato. I like the cherry ones, but others are fine, as long as you cut them into small pieces.
  • The chili flakes are optional, but they add a lot more flavor to the avocado paste.

For the poached eggs:

  • Add salt and vinegar to the egg pan, which will also help in perfect cooking and consistency.
  • For poached eggs, the trick is not to put too much water in the pot.
  • Once the water starts boiling, turn the heat to low.
  • When the eggs start to cook, take a spoon and carefully start pouring spoonfuls of the boiling water over the yolks so that they cook slightly.

For the hollandaise sauce:

  • It is important to understand that for the hollandaise sauce you must do the process in bain-marie.
  • I’m talking about the recipe I made, which I kind of cheated on because I got distracted and made a mistake (but it was TOP anyway so I wanted to show you), but if you want to make the original recipe, just use the egg yolks.
  • The mixing part is essential! It’s a bit of a pain, but worth it…. Stir constantly and without stopping!

For the Hollandaise sauce

  • 4 eggs
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp vinegar


For the sweet potato toast

  • Start by cutting the sweet potato into thin slices. If you have a mandoline, you can use it to make the process easier.
  • Dry the sweet potato slices well and arrange them on a tray lined with baking paper. Set aside.
  • In a bowl, mix together the olive oil, paprika, turmeric, salt, and pepper.
  • Using a kitchen brush, brush this sauce onto each sweet potato slice.
  • Bake in a preheated oven for about 20 min at 180º.

For the avocado taste

  • Cut the avocado in half and remove the pulp.
  • Crush it slightly with the help of a fork.
  • Add the previously cut cherry tomatoes.
  • Add the cumin, paprika, salt, pepper, and chili flakes and stir well.
  • Squeeze the juice from the lemon into the bowl of avocado and fold it.

For the poached eggs

  • Pour the water into a small saucepan and turn the heat on high.
  • Add the salt and vinegar and let it boil.
  • As soon as the water starts bubbling, bring the heat to a minimum.
  • Crack the eggs, one by one, into the pan.
  • When the underside starts to cook, remove the water from the sides with the help of a spoon, and carefully pour it over the yolk so that it cooks.
  • I don't like eggs with the yolk undercooked, but let it cook to your liking.

For the Hollandaise sauce

  • Prepare a bowl in a bain-marie (i.e., hot water bath), over high heat.
  • Add in the butter and let it melt.
  • Add the egg whites, salt, pepper, and vinegar and stir vigorously with a wire rod.
  • When small bubbles begin to form, lower the heat and add the egg yolks.
  • Stir constantly and without stopping until the mixture starts to thicken.
  • Once the consistency is to your liking, turn off the heat.

For the plating

  • Arrange the sweet potatoes on a plate.
  • Add the avocado paste on top.
  • Carefully arrange the poached eggs on top of the avocado paste.
  • Sprinkle with the fresh herbs you like best.
  • Pour the hollandaise sauce into a small bowl, so that each person can serve themselves to taste.


You can replace sweet potato toast with bread toast or roasted zucchini or pumpkin.
If you don't have avocado, you can use hummus (see the recipe I left above for sweet potato toast).
The chili flakes are optional to give a boost in flavor. If you use a small amount, it won't get super spicy.
The poached egg should be just the way you like it, whether it's undercooked or not. 
You can also make fried or boiled eggs. I love this recipe with hard-boiled eggs, it's AMAZING!
As for the hollandaise sauce, if you want to make the original recipe, turn down the heat as soon as the butter melts and add only the egg yolks.
If you don't want to make the sauce, it's not mandatory either, but it gives it an even better flavor.
