If you love simple yet gourmet food as much as I do, then you’ll love these eggs on toast.¬†Just seven minutes away from the perfect breakfast, these smashed eggs on toast take just seven minutes to prepare.

Why Try Smashed Eggs On Toast?

It reminds me of egg salad when I eat smashed eggs on toast.

Due to the mayonnaise and lemon juice that are used in their preparation, I am saying this.

Imagine the best egg salad served on crispy artisan bread for a brunch treat you’ll never forget.

Despite its humble roots, this is a recipe with quality ingredients. Sometimes, the simplest things are the best.

Soft Boiled Vs Hard-Boiled Eggs

Soft-boiled eggs are my favorite for smashed eggs on toast. I love the taste of the yolks when they are tender and just a touch runny.

This recipe can be made with hard-boiled eggs or soft-boiled ones. I suggest trying it with soft-boiled eggs first, then deciding whether you want to switch to hard-boiled ones.

How To Perfectly Cook Soft-Boiled Eggs

You will get a perfectly cooked egg yolk with a creamy center when you cook it for seven minutes.

My opinion is that putting eggs into cold water and heating the water and eggs together is not an accurate method of determining when the eggs are done.

As a result, I always bring my water to a boil first. Once the water boils, I gently lower the eggs into it and cook them without adjusting the heat.

You just need to set a timer (or use a drop-in egg timer like this one) and prepare an ice bath. Once your timer goes off, submerge the eggs in the ice bath and leave them to cool for 5-6 minutes.

For boiling, use eggs at least a few days old, and leave your super-fresh eggs for desserts. If you have difficulties peeling eggs, it may be because your eggs are so fresh.

Kewpie Vs Regular Mayo

In this recipe, I use Kewpie mayonnaise. Kewpie mayonnaise is a Japanese mayonnaise made with egg yolks, rice, or apple cider vinegar. Classic mayonnaise is an emulsion of oil, eggs, and acids.

Despite having some similarities, kewpie mayonnaise uses only egg yolks, giving it a smoother texture and a much more umami taste.

If you can’t find or don’t like kewpie mayonnaise, you can use regular mayonnaise.

Which Bread To Use

If you prefer, you can use plain white bread, artisan bread, sourdough bread, bread rolls, or any other bread that you like.

For this recipe, I usually use different types of bread, but when I want to pamper myself, I always choose artisan bread.

Toasting the bread is crucial here. I don’t know why, but toasted bread is always better.

In my opinion, it’s the extra crispiness of toasted bread that makes me addicted to it. You can toast your bread in a toaster or in a skillet over medium heat.

How To Garnish The Toast

Adding microgreens all over smashed eggs on toast is my favorite.

Other toppings are popular with my family; some love crumbled feta because of its saltiness, some like red pepper flakes for their spicy kick, while others enjoy the combination of microgreens and dill.

Other ideas that will work:

  • Salmon smoked in a smoker

  • Anchovies in tins

  • Fish sardines

  • Seasoning for furikake

  • The avocado

  • The spice paprika

It will be amazing whatever you choose.
