I love avocado with eggs. I add slices on top of fried eggs on toast, and inside egg sandwiches. But I had never tried adding avocado to scrambled eggs — until last week. Why not? I have no idea — these two things were meant to go together.

I will be the first to admit that chunks of avocado in scrambled eggs looks a little odd. There’s a greenish cast to the whole dish (Green Eggs and Ham, anyone?). But ignore that. The soft, creamy eggs coat the bites of even creamier avocado for one big mess of savory creaminess. It’s utterly delicious.

It’s also extra-simple to make. Just scramble some eggs until they are barely set, and still soft. (See how to make creamy, luscious scrambled eggs.) Dice an avocado and stir it in, gently, cooking until it is just warmed through. Pile on toast and eat immediately!

Do you ever add avocado to scrambled eggs? I’m already plotting a signature breakfast burrito with avocado in scrambled eggs, perhaps with a little cilantro and queso fresco tossed. in.
