Breakfast Sandwiches With Creamy Avocado Sauce

Breakfast needs to shine. After eating the same thing for breakfast for several weeks in a row, I decided it was time to change things up a bit. Ginny went on an avocado rampage, so I came up with these breakfast sandwiches with creamy avocado sauce. I had the revelation that you can mix mayonnaise in with smashed avocado to give it an extra zing.

English muffins are a staple of Ginny’s breakfast menu, so I decided to throw together these breakfast sandwiches with creamy avocado sauce and put a bag of frozen hash browns to good use. Confession: I am a bit of a snob when it comes to frozen veggies that have been in the freezer for a while. I was convinced that if they have even a little ice on them the flavor is no good. Ginny convinced me to use them and she was right. They were still good! That happens more than I would like to admit. But that’s another story…

These sandwiches are really easy to put together. Just cook the hashbrowns in a bit of olive oil, fry an egg for each sandwich, toast the muffin and whip together the creamy avocado sauce. The sauce has five easy ingredients: avocados, mayonnaise, lime juice, garlic and salt. You may need to adjust the amount of lime juice to suit your preferences. I used half a lime for the sauce with about a half teaspoon of salt.

You could also make these sandwiches on a bagel, if that is your breakfast bread of choice or some toasted whole wheat bread. Add in a cooked sausage patty for an extra protein kick.
