Scrambled eggs, prosciutto and avocado brunch

Call it brunch or breakfast, or as I had it, lunch. This was a quick and very tasty way to use up the last piece of proscuito and also the mushrooms, also on their final legs. Or stems.

I put it all on toast and at the last minute (which is why you won't find this in any photo), I used sriracha aioli instead of butter.  Of course, you can easily substitute your favorite veggies, or anything that needs using up quickly. It seems that's often my first choice when running out to the store is my last choice.

Now, what I forgot to add was the gherkins that appear in the photo, which I had planned to dice into tiny pieces. Next time!  You'll also notice that I don't always suggest quantities of ingredients. That's because it's totally what suits your own taste.

What you'll need:

2 eggs
1 slice of cheese
1 slice of bread
mushrooms, sliced
grape tomatoes, quartered
slivered garlic
red onion, sliced thinly
1 slice avocado
fresh basil

 What to do:

1. Slice the mushrooms, red onion, tomatoes, gherkins, and avocado.

2.  Heat the prosciutto in a saute pan; toast the slice of bread.

3. Scramble the eggs in a dish and set aside.

4. Remove prosciutto and saute the sliced veggies, except for the avocado, in the same pan. When slightly browned, add the egg mixture and stir together until eggs are set.

5. Spread the aioli on the toast, add the prosciutto, cheese slice, and then the avocado slice. Smother with the scambled egg, and garnish with fresh basil.
