Why you should make this TikTok Trend

Fluffy boiled eggs look like grated cheese and work perfectly for a light but tasty layer on toast. Incredible good, the simple prep work of grating (over slicing) layers egg cleanly and evenly on top of the avocado. If you want a melt-in-your-mouth breakfast, avocado toast is it.

While grated eggs may not be your go-to breakfast temptation, this TikTok viral recipe trend is worth the hype in our opinion.

Mixing up a familiar ingredient in a new way helps break up the monotony of recipes and gives you something new and unique. We stan.

Where did grating eggs start? 

Honestly – not sure. This FYP video has been seen everywhere, and we initially were inspired by TikTok creator @zzzachariah, who was also trying it for himself. He’s a great content creator, so check out his infectious and fun videos. 

Ingredients: 

  • Toast – Premake toast to prep for eggs. Use any bread you like, but I prefer a long bread like an Italian slice if its in the house. 
  • Real mayonnaise – For the creamiest breakfast sandwich, use real mayo. 
  • Ripe Avocado – Slice ripe avocados into thin sandwich-friendly sizes. 
  • Hard-boiled egg – as noted below, boiled eggs should be pre-made and cold. 
  • Toppings: hot sauce, optional

How to make Grated Egg Toast with Avocado

What grater to use to grate eggs?

Expert Tips

  • Use a micro-grater as we did for the perfect Instagram-worthy toast breakfast. Larger graters (like the kind you use for taco cheese) are not as fluffy. 
  • Eggs should be hard-boiled and cold. If you intend to eat grated eggs as breakfast, it’s best to pre-boil eggs, peel, and let set in the fridge to chill. Warm eggs won’t grate. 
  • Dust toast with chili flakes, Everything bagel seasoning, dollops of chili sauce, shredded cheese, or salsa for extra flavor. 
  • Drizzle this dish with a little bit of flavor! This Sriracha Aioli recipe is perfect!

What can grated eggs be served on? 

  • Toast –  This Egg avocado toast idea takes grated hard-boiled egg into the fanciest looking hard-boiled egg breakfast ever, and all you need is bread. Air fryer biscuits work great too!
  • Hamburger (same as using runny eggs for that steak and eggs taste)
  • Salad – Skip the sliced boiled eggs and try grated eggs as extra flavor or simple topper on chicken kale salad.

Is this viral method for making eggs a taste game-changer? 

I have read some reviews stating that some people had a mild sense of disappointment, but I disagree. While you need to have COLD boiled eggs on hand, the fluffy eggs with optional sauce bring avocado toast to a whole new tastebud dancing level. 

With so many classic egg recipes, this TikTok recipe is a breath of fresh air. Grated egg avocado toast IS delicious and a fun food idea that we can get behind – even if it requires thinking ahead for cold eggs.
