The Easiest Eggs & Toast…Maybe Ever

Eggs in a Mug with Avocado Toast

After reading BuzzFeed’s “19 Breakfasts You Can Make In A Mug,” I wanted to test out their idea for eggs. Seemed simple enough. With it being so hot and muggy this summer, I haven’t been too inclined to make eggs and have the stovetop emitting so much heat.

I knew I need avocado in this sandwich after seeing that. Sriracha sounded like a good pairing, and I have hummus begging to be used in my fridge. My mom got the idea of pairing hummus and eggs after making one of Giada De Laurentiis‘ veggie breakfast wraps with hummus and poached eggs. Toss in some spinach over a multigrain bagel, and an unlikely grouping of ingredients to make the best breakfast I’ve had in ages.
