Often known as nature’s butter, avocado is a creamy and nutrient-rich fruit that has gradually occupied the place of staple food in many worldwide cuisines. Whether planning for a simple breakfast or brunch, avocado can be inserted into your course without any hassle.   

Avocado was first cultivated in Mexico as early as 500 BC. According to Critical Reviews In Food Science And Nutrition in their study, ‘Hass Avocado Composition and Potential Health Effects’, avocados are packed with dietary fibre, potassium, sodium, magnesium, vitamins A, C, E, folate, monosaturated fatty acids, and other nutrients. Its versatility knows no bounds, whether mashed onto toast for a quick breakfast, sliced into salads for added creaminess, or blended into smoothies for a nutritious boost.  

If you love having avocado, it is a perfect breakfast staple, try moving from avocado toast and try out different recipes made with the fruit. The smooth texture, subtle nutty flavour elevates any recipe. Look at some of the breakfast recipes:  

  • Avocado Breakfast Burrito  

The dish perfectly blends the creamy richness of ripe avocados with protein-laden scrambled eggs, black beans, and a zesty kick of salsa all wrapped up in a whole wheat tortilla. The avocado adds a smooth texture that complements the eggs and the beans, while the salsa adds a touch of freshness. It is topped with shredded cheese and a dollop of Greek yoghurt.  

  • Avocado Egg Cups  

This is a creative breakfast idea made with avocado. To make these, the avocados are cut in half and the pits are removed, creating a hollow for the eggs. Crack an egg into each half of the avocado, and sprinkle salt, pepper, herbs, and spices. These are then baked until the egg whites are set but the yolk remains slightly runny for a perfect, creamy texture. They can be topped with diced tomatoes, crumbled bacon, shredded cheese, or fresh herbs.


  • Avocado Smoothie Bowl  

This is a nutritious and delicious option where ripe avocado, banana, green leafy like spinach, Greek yoghurt, and a splash of milk is blended together to create a thick and creamy base. This is poured into a bowl with a variety of toppings such as granola, sliced fruits like berries or kiwi, nuts, and seeds. The creamy texture of the avocado complements the sweetness of the fruit.  

  • Avocado Breakfast Salad  

Salads can never be boring if you add avocados to it. Diced avocados add a creamy texture and rich flavour that perfectly complements the crispness of the mixed greens and cherry tomatoes. If you want to make it a protein boost salad, add sliced hard-boiled eggs to it along with quinoa. Toss it with a mixture made of olive oil, lemon juice, salt, and pepper which adds a burst of freshness.  

  • Avocado Breakfast Pizza  

This innovative dish uses a pre-made pizza crust onto which a layer of mashed avocado is spread adding a velvety texture and a subtle, buttery taste. The avocado serves as a perfect base for scrambled eggs, baked sausage, shredded cheese, and cherry tomatoes. As the pizza is set to bake, the cheese melts while the creamy avocado remains intact.   

  • Avocado and Egg Breakfast Sandwich  

This is the basic sandwich where the mashed avocado is spread onto the bread. A freshly fried or poached egg is carefully placed atop the avocado layer, adding richness to every bite. The sandwich is accompanied by a slice of melted cheese, crispy bacon or ham, and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. The sandwich blends the creaminess of avocado and runny egg yolk.  

  • Avocado Breakfast Bowl  

This combines cooked quinoa which is adorned with slices of ripe avocado. Sautéed vegetables like bell peppers, onions, and spinach are added to the dish which not only adds colour and flavour but also vitamins and minerals. You can also add a perfectly fried egg or poached egg to the bowl that boosts protein in the bowl.
