Avocado Toast with Herbed Goat Cheese and Fried Egg

Turn basic avocado toast into a hearty weekend brunch or easy weekday lunch with the addition of herbed goat cheese, ricotta salata and a fried egg. If you want a little extra kick, drizzle the finished dish with chili oil or your favorite hot sauce.



  • 2 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
  • 2 slices country-style bread
  • 4 Tbs. (2 oz./60 g) herbed goat cheese
  • 1 avocado, pitted, peeled and sliced
  • 2 eggs, fried to your desired doneness
  • 1 oz. (30 g) ricotta salata, shaved
  • 2 tsp. chili oil (optional)
  • Snipped fresh chives for garnish
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper


In a fry pan over medium-high heat, warm the olive oil. Add the bread and toast, turning once, until golden brown on both sides, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.

Spread the goat cheese on the toast, dividing it evenly. Top each piece of toast with the avocado slices, a fried egg, the ricotta salata and chili oil. Drizzle lightly with more olive oil and garnish with snipped chives. Season with salt and pepper and serve immediately. Serves 2.
