Avocado Fried Egg Biscuit Sandwich


When I was in London this past fall, my husband and I stayed at a beautiful French hotel in London.  The entire staff was French and they spoke perfect English with a French accent, naturally.  fried egg avocado 073

As sexy as the French accent sounds (on a man), it is a tough accent to follow.  fried egg avocado 023

One evening I called up concierge to inquire about tickets for the "Duck Tour." 
Our conversation went as follows:

me:  Hi. I'm interested in booking tickets for the "Duck Tour," how much will that be?
French lady:  Excuse me, you want the "ducktur."
me:  Yes. How much will that cost?
French lady:  Oh, that will be very expensive.
me:  *baffled*  Okay, but how much will it cost?
French lady:  Probably around 300 to 400 pounds!
me:  WHAT?  For the "Duck Tour."
French lady:  Yes, it will much cheaper if you go to the "
ducktur" on your own. 
me:  *so confused*  I just want to book tickets for the "Duck Tour," it is a bus that drives into the Thames River.
French lady:  Ah, you say "Duck Tur," I thought you say "
ducktur" (as in doctor).    
me (in my head):  *O-M-G!  You still sound the same.

We both started laughing.

I find that story so amusing, and hopefully you guys get the joke, or is the joke on me?fried egg avocado 039

Well, if I bored you with my lame story, perhaps I can excite you with this delicious Avocado Fried Egg Biscuit Sandwich.fried egg avocado 026

I normally don't buy store bought biscuits due to the amount of saturated + trans fat in them, however when I saw these Buttermilk Biscuits at Trader Joe's without any trans fat, I couldn't resist.  TJ’s biscuits are so flaky and delicious, but still high in saturated fat.fried egg avocado 012

In any case, I was full for about 5 hours after just eating 1 sandwich.  Hope you guys enjoy this as much as my husband and I did.fried egg avocado 050

NUTRITION: Avocados are rich in Antioxidants and are a good source of Fiber, Folic Acid, and Vitamins B6, C, E and K.  In addition, they help lower cholesterol and contain anti-cancerous properties.  Eggs are a very good source of Vitamin B2, and are a good source Protein and Vitamin D, although the yolks do contain a lot of cholesterol, the yolk also contains tons of nutrients that are good for you. 
The Buttermilk Biscuits do not contain any nutrition, for a healthier alternative, opt for 100% Whole Grain bread.


INGREDIENTS:
for the Avocado Mash (enough for 4 biscuit sandwiches):
  • California Hass Avocado – 1  (mashed)
  • Fresh Lime Juice – roughly 1/2 a tbsp
  • Black Pepper – 1/4 tsp
  • Salt – 1/4 tsp or more  (to taste)
for the Fried Egg:
  • Organic Canola Oil – 1/2 tbsp
  • Organic Egg – 1  (broken into a bowl and poured into a pan)
  • Cayenne Pepper – season to taste
  • Black Pepper – season to taste
  • Salt – season to taste
for the Sandwich:
  • Trader Joe’s Buttermilk Biscuits – follow the instructions and bake  (for a healthier alternative, use 100% Whole Grain bread)
  • Avocado Mash – spread on one side
  • Fried Egg – placed on the opposite side
  • Chives – 2 to 3  (finely chopped for garnish)


DIRECTIONS:
1. Here are your main ingredients.
2. Start by preheating the oven and baking the biscuits.  Follow the directions on the package.
3. Prepare the avocado mash by adding the avocado to a bowl.  Add a little lime juice to prevent the avocado from browning and season with salt and black pepper.
4. Mash the avocado.  Set aside.
5. Finely chop the chives.  Set aside.
6. Once the biscuits are perfectly golden brown, remove them from the oven.
7. Heat a pan on low heat (dial #3) until the pan is pretty hot.  Once hot, add organic canola oil.
8. Crack an egg into a bowl and carefully pour the egg into the pan.  Allow the egg to cook for about 3 to 4 minutes, or until the bottom is slightly golden.
9. Gently dislodge the egg from the pan, and flip without breaking the egg.


10. Season with salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper.  Cook for a few minutes until the bottom is golden.  I prefer my yolk cooked.  Once done, turn off the stove and proceed to assemble.
11. Slice a biscuit in half.  Spread the avocado mash on one side. 
12. Top the other side of the biscuit with the cooked fried egg. 
13. Garnish with chives.
14. Serve immediately.fried egg avocado 071

  4. Haha your story made me laugh...almost as much as the bit about Buttermilk Biscuits having no nutrition- eh that's okay every so often right :)! These photos and recipe are killing me- I love the combo of eggs & avocado but this just takes it to a whole new level....YUM!

  5. I so wish we had a TJ's near us! I bet they bring one to SFlo when we move! Haha. Anyway, this sandwich looks so good - I love the combo of eggs and avocado. YUM!

    And I laughed out loud when reading that conversation. Sounds like something that would happen to me!!

  6. I was totally imagining that conversation in my head with the french accent! Too funny! To us Brits half the stuff the French people is totally incomprehensible! The other half we don't seem to hear becasue we are still trying to understand the first half of a sentence!

    The avacado, egg and biscuits combo looks yummy a perfect sunday brunch recipe!

  7. I imagined the whole convo between you two in my head and laughed alot :)since I also have bit of an accent, I am sure people feel same way about me every once in a while. The idea of this sandwich is too delicious, will try it with 100% whole bread. Loved how you red-alerted us about the biscuits.

  8. My kind of sammie and conversation -- now I can expect such scenario if and when we get a chance to visit France ;)

  9. I love the story...I have a difficult time understanding people with accents (including my own father!).

    Ali and Maya love these biscuits! They are the only pre-made version that I buy because the ingredient list is not unreasonable. They cover them with jam and butter and they do look divine! I love the avocado mash...looks tasty.

  10. @Ameena - I am fascinated by accents, but some are definitely more difficult to follow than others. I thought the TJ biscuits were great, but I'll have to buy them every few months, it's different buying them when you have a kid around. :-) Thanks!

  11. @Kiran - You totally can expect such a scenario in France. :)

  12. @Dixya - Haha.. yeah, I feel the need to red-alert on items that aren't so healthy, my blog is suppose to be a healthy food blog, but not 100% of the time. Jeez, that conversation was absurd.

  13. @Sejal (Diary..) - LOL! You are funny! The French are pretty incomprehensible, but it is a sexy accent on a man, it must be a cliche thing.

  14. @Parita - no TJ in Miami? Really? I didn't know you are moving to SFO. I know for sure they have them in the Bay Area and the Valley, just don't know about SFO specifically. LOL.. thanks, it was funny when I look back, but at the time we were both so confused.

  15. @Khushboo - thanks.. I had to throw in the red-alert on the biscuits. Definitely once in a while biscuits, else I'd have to go to the ducktur! :)

  16. @Ameila - Aside from my favorite accent, the British accent, the Aussie accent is sooooooooooo HOTTTT! I would not give you funny looks, I would be paying attention to everything you are saying and trying to copy it in my head. Yeah, I know avocados aren't big in India, but according to Khushboo they are quite popular in Mumbai. :-(

  22. Oh wow this is so simple yet so good. I could probably eat a few of these. I love avocado in anything. You are giving great ideas :-) So you like my new logo? Thanks :-) Now, who is going to Mexico? you are making me so jealous, that beach picture sure looks dreamy!! Have a few cocktails on my behalf would you? :-) Have fun.

  23. Accents are such a funny thing. My extended family lives in India and Australia, and we used to spend hours imitating each others accents.
    This recipe looks so good! I'm going to try making it this weekend with some whole wheat biscuits. Thanks for sharing!

  24. My husband would love me forever if I made this for him--he loves avocados!

  25. @eatgood4life - Yeah, it's simple and good. Love avocados too. Love your new logo.. I briefly saw it on fb. Oh Miryam, I drank plenty of cocktails on everyone's behalf. :)

  27. @Natasha - Yeah, I imitate the Indian accent, amongst others, love learning new accents. Hope you tried this recipe and let me know your feedback. Thanks.
