The Deets

Meet my latest breakfast obsession! Avocado toast with a fried egg and tomatillo salsa verde with hot pepper sardines. If you haven’t tried Fishwife hot pepper sardines, this is your sign 🙌🏼. I’m a huge fan of Fishwife and love incorporating their products into new recipes. I love how much flavor this toast has from the salsa verde and then the hot pepper sardines! It’s such a treat for a weekend brunch and so easy to make. I started off by making the salsa verde, which included some lime juice, scallions, garlic, tomatillos, shallots, olive oil, some salt, the Fishwife hot pepper sardines, and some cilantro! Just throw it all in a blender and your salsa is complete. Easy peasy! I used sourdough for this toast, layered on some avocado and a fried egg and completed it with the salsa verde! Just a heavenly treat, plus it’s a hearty breakfast so you’ll be ready to take on the day. If you enjoyed this toast recipe, I have a full collection you have to check out here! There’s something for everyone, sweet and savory.
