In the kitchen with Kelley: Avocado toast and eggs over-easy

Now that we can breathe a sigh of relief about eating eggs without fear of falling over dead with cholesterol, I present you with my absolute favorite brunch recipe.

Avocado toast and eggs over-easy is the stuff Saturday and Sunday mornings were made for… A satisfying breakfast that tantalizes the taste buds, while giving you just enough of the healthy fats you need, a smorgasbord of protein and nutrients and a little salsa to top it off.

Eggs are and have always been one of my favorite foods. I love the taste and texture, but there are many health reasons to make eggs a regular part of your diet. For starters, this once vilified superfood boosts muscle and sheds pounds. That’s something I can feel good about eating.
