My Breakfast in Algarve Portugal – Eggs & Avocado

My Breakfast in Algarve Portugal – Eggs & Avocado


I’ve recently moved to the sunny coast of Algarve, and I had a hard time adjusting my diet to the new surroundings.

Live like a local, they say! But the transition to another country, entirely other life and other food, is hard, no matter how amazing is the place you are living in. And Algarve is a pretty amazing place! Don’t feel guilty if you don’t fit in just yet but watch your diet, because stress eating is a real thing.

Eggs and avocado. Healthy and easy to make, no fuss. My favorite recipe is one I developed myself, based purely on the instinct of what goes with what. OK, and maybe to much Master Chef Australia watching!

MY ULTIMATE breakfast in Algarve Portugal EGGS & AVOCADO TOAST 

You can find these products at your local supermarket. I use Pingo Doce because is the closest to me, and also has a range of organic and bio products to choose from.


2 organic free-range eggs

2 slices of Free Bread

1 quarter of an avocado

1 slice of lemon

A pinch of salt, pepper, and red chili flakes

Fresh Parsley

Coconut oil spray

Toast the bread. If you just moved here, and like me, don’t just yet have a toaster, use a pan or a grill and toast the bread that way. Or just put the bread into a fork and keep the fork over the gas stove, if you have gas. You have to be inventive when you are moving into an empty house.

And of course put on your to do list for this week: buy the most amazing toaster ever for your new home. Because you deserve it!

While the bread it’s toasting, fry two eggs using coconut oil spray on medium/low heat. Cover with lid.

While toast is finishing, cut a slice of lemon and a quarter of avocado and place on plate.

Using a fork, mash the avocado onto the toast and squeeze the lemon wedge on top. Alongside (or on top) place the eggs.

Sprinkle eggs and toast with chili flakes, salt, and pepper to your liking. A dash of olive oil on the toast is also delicious.

Garnish with some fresh parsley.

E voila! Breakfast is served on the terrace.

PS: I have this toaster back home and I really like it! It gives a vintage feeling to the kitchen!

I hope you liked the recipe but more than that I hope my idea of a Breakfast in Algarve Portugal with Eggs and Avocado to be useful to you, because in the beginning I really struggled the first days arriving here.
