Crab & Egg Toasts with Smashed Avocado Recipe

These Crab & Egg Toasts are perfect for a Sunday Brunch at home. If you enjoy seafood, this is a recipe you’ll have to try. You can also add more garnishes to this dish such as chives or pickled onions. Really whatever you have in the fridge that you enjoy will complement this dish well as a topping.

These Crab & Egg Toasts are delicious when paired with a mimosa or coffee.

It’s Dungeness Crab season right now in Northern California so the crab is cheap and plentiful. We grabbed two Dungen crabs from Safeway ($6.99/lb!) for Saturday night dinner and had enough to make these toasts on Sunday morning. If fresh crab is unavailable, you can always use frozen crab or replace it altogether with shrimp, scallops or chicken salad.

These Crab & Egg toasts go well with mimosas or coffee. A meal like this would easily run up a tab for two between $40 – $50. At home, we were able to make it for around $7.

The good news is that it’s not hard to make this restaurant-quality dish. We made five toasts and between the two of us and it was more than enough.
