Avocado Toast with Boiled Egg Gribiche

I wish I could take credit for thinking up this culinary combination but the truth is…I can’t. I have enjoyed this style of dish many times over the years. My favorite happens to be at a restaurant right down the street from my house, Eveleigh.

Egg gribiche is a classic french dish blending mayo, mustard, hard boiled eggs, capers, cucumbers, cornichons and herbs. For an “at home” version I simplified it a bit by just using whole grain mustard, olive oil, capers and cornichons.

Think of this dish the next time you are preparing a brunch and build away!


For the Egg Gribiche

6 hardboiled eggs, sliced (buy these already hard boiled and peeled at the grocery store)

1 tsp of whole grain mustard

1 tablespoon of capers, chopped

1 tablespoon of cornichons, chopped

1 tsp of tarragon, finely chopped

Gently blend all of the above ingredients in a small bowl


For the Avocado Toast

Toast 3 slices of french bread under the broiler in the oven or in a toaster.

Mash 1 avocado in a small bowl with approx 1 teaspoon of lemon juice

Add a pinch of salt

Layer on top of the toast and sprinkle each piece with some paprika
