I’ve been MIA this week because my baby girl turned 1 on Tuesday! I know it’s clique but it’s unbelievable how fast this past year has gone by. We celebrated with family and friends on Saturday with a circus themed party. We ate lots of circus food (kettle corn, soft pretzels, funnel cakes and more), took funny pictures in the DIY photo booth and watched sweet Hannah absolutely demolish her cake. It was all over her, the floor, walls and door behind her. When she was done, she threw it on the floor. Man that girly has a lot of personality!
With all the cooking and commotion this weekend, I wanted to keep dinner simple last night so I turned to one of our new favorite meals. I’ve had this ridiculously easy and delicious recipe in my back pocket for months and am just now sharing it. Lame. Especially since it involves grilling which won’t be happening for too long around here. But it would still be great cooked in a skillet or under the broiler.
My aunt texted me a picture of a dinner she made a few months ago. Yep, we roll like that. Anyway, it was a grilled steak topped with an egg and chopped avocado. I was out shopping for some new clothes but made sure to stop by the grocery store on the way home so that I could whip this up for dinner the next night. That’s how excited I was about it.
Joel and I aren’t huge fans of plain ‘ole avocado so I mixed it up a bit and whipped up some quick guacamole to top it with instead. And I have to tell you, the hot sauce makes all the difference. Steak and eggs are a no brainer together but then add the creamy, citrusy guacamole and some zip from the hot sauce and you have a match made in heaven.
Steak and Eggs with Guacamole
2 ribeye steaks
1/2 recipe guacamole
hot sauce, optional
1. Preheat grill to medium high heat. When grill is ready, place steaks on grill and season with salt and pepper. Remove steaks from grill and allow to rest for 10 minutes.
2. While steaks are resting, preheat a skillet over medium heat and cook eggs to your liking (I made ours with the yolks just a bit runny).
3. Slice steak and place on a plate. Top with egg and a dollop of guacamole. Top with a few shakes of hot sauce if you would like.
