This breakfast sandwich with avocado is right up your chipotle obsessed, Mexican food, breakfast crazed, runny egg lovin’ alley. Rustic toast slathered with chipotle mayo, topped with bacon and avocado and crowned with a poached egg. This egg and avocado sandwich is a great way to start the morning. And it comes together in a jiff. Let’s take a look.
For us, Sunday mornings are reserved for a special breakfast. Something other than Cheerios or a slice of toast.
And I don’t know about you, but I wake up hungry, so that special breakfast gets even more points when it doesn’t take an hour to make.
Enter this easy open faced breakfast egg and avocado sandwich idea.
There are too many star ingredients in this breakfast sandwich to give credit to just one item. Who doesn’t love bacon? Sliced avocado is a superstar. And a poached egg is always a special treat.
But what pushes this breakfast sandwich over the top is a smear of Chipotle Mayonnaise. Just right spicy, creamy and dreamy, it’s simply amazing.
Let’s get started.
Ingredients You’ll Need
- A good old fashioned loaf of rustic style bread.
- Bacon, preferably thick cut
- Chipotle Mayo
Step 1: Before you start to build this egg and avocado sandwich, whip up a batch of chipotle mayo. In a bowl combine 1/2 C. mayonnaise, 1 chopped chipotle pepper, 1 teaspoon of the adobo sauce and a good solid squeeze of lime juice (about 2 teaspoons).
Step 2: Start the process of poaching two eggs. If you need to, refer to my How To Poach An Egg article.
Then build your sandwich.
Step 3: Toast two slices of bread. Spread each slice with some chipotle mayo. Then add two slices of avocado and two slices of bacon per toast.
Step 4: Top the sandwich with a beautiful poached egg and dig in.
What an easy breakfast sandwich with avocado and so DEElicious I may have to have it every Sunday for the rest of my life.
Pro Tip: When frying bacon, low and slow is always best. Place bacon in a non-stick fry pan, and turn the heat to medium low. Let the bacon start to cook and then turn up the heat a bit. Turn the bacon often for even cooking. Some people like to cook bacon in the oven on a sheet pan. I prefer the old fashioned way of frying bacon stovetop. You have more control over getting it cooked evenly.
Rustic bread is a very relative term. When I think of rustic bread, I think of a round loaf rather than a loaf shape like your purchase for sandwich bread. Look for rustic or artisan bread in the bakery section of the grocery store. It has a heavy crust with soft chewy bread inside.
When using sliced avocados for any recipe, you simply don’t want to try and slice an overly ripe mushy avocado. Save those to make guacamole. The avocado should be somewhat firm to the touch with just a slight give when you squeeze it.
- English Muffins: Use toasted English Muffins in place of rustic bread.
- Eggs: Instead of poached egg, top that sandwich with a fried egg. I highly recommend over easy, so you still get that runny yolk experience
- Sprinkle the sandwich with some crumbled Cotija cheese. A Mexican crumbling cheese, it’s beautifully salty with flavor.
- Tomatoes: When fresh tomatoes are in season, add a thin slice.
- Avocado: Have avocados that are “guacamole” ripe? Using a fork, smash the avocado and season with salt and pepper. Use this in place of sliced avocado.

Great looking sandwich! I love egg sandwiches, and you’ve really made this one special. Thanks!
This looks awesome and I’m sure the good smear of mayo is a key. If I didn’t know better, I’d think you wrote the first sentence to me.

That really does look amazing!
Andrea @ Fork Fingers Chopsticks. says
I agree chipotle is fantastic and paired with mayo, it’s makes almost anything heavenly. Great breakfast – how could it not be with chipotle, avocado, and bacon. Although I’d eat this for lunch and dinner too.
Lea Ann says
Andrea, I’ve had chip0tle mayo before, but for some reason this combo is just right. Missed you at the meetup, see you next time.
Chipotle + Bacon + Avocado = Delicioso! You are talking my ingredients chica! YUM!!!
Absolutely beeyootiful! I can just imagine how good this would be once the yolk volcanoes onto the rest of the “island”. YUM!
Lovely. I adore eggs and avocados — especially together.
From the looks of your pictures, you’re much better at poaching eggs than I am! It’s a work in progress for me, that’s for sure! 🙂
High Plains Drifters says
A lime, some mayo, and either chipotles or Sriracha, and it’s amazing what one can do. Cheers!
Lea Ann says
I like how you think. Love that Sriracha idea.
My Carolina Kitchen says
Absolutely fabulous photos Lea Ann. I could dive into that egg on the screen. I can’t wait to try the chipotle mayo.
Lea Ann says
Oh, this *does* look good! What a great combination… I could eat it every day… not just on Sunday!
Lea Ann says
Karen, if I didn’t work and could cook weekday mornings, I just might have it every day. 🙂
