One of my favorite things to do when traveling is to visit local farmers markets. I like to see what is in season and what fruits or vegetables the area is known for.
My recent journeys took me to Maui. I know - it's a tough life!
Farmers markets in Maui have a great variety of tropical fruits, as you would expect. I cannot wait to share some of what I did with papayas and mangos. However, I will start with something else I discovered. What I did not expect to encounter in Maui were these enormous avocados.

I couldn't wait to cut into an avocado. I found that not only were the avocados huge, but the nut in the middle was the size of a baseball!

They sure don't have avocados like that where I come from. Best of all, the avocados were nice and ripe.
At this point, I had some hard boiled eggs that I picked up from the deli, this huge avocado, and bread. I decided to try a new idea based on a spin off from my normal breakfast of scrambled eggs and guacamole on toast.
1/4 ripe avocado
2 hard boiled eggs
2 pieces bread
Salt and pepper (optional)
1. Toast bread.
2. Scoop and smash avocado on each slice of toast.
3. Slice each hard boiled egg and layer on top of the avocado/toast.
4. Season with salt and pepper (optional).
Enjoy this easy, tasty, and filling breakfast.
