I truly miss avocado. You just get crappy ones here.
Hard as stone and next brown and icky.
And on top expensive.

I haven't had eggs and avocado together- but I bet it tastes delicious. :)

DVArtist said...

Ohhh this just looks sooooo good. The avocados we have here are horrible and even if they fell good to the touch they are black and brown when cut into. Sooo I will have to wait on this one.

I recently was in contact with a birder who visited Uganda and said that quite often for breakfast he had avocado with poached eggs on top. Not a combination I would have thought of, but I will give it a try.
