Be trendy. Get your creative avocado toast on. Be epic. Make this Bacon Jam and Egg Avocado Toast for breakfast. It’s totally a meal worth waking up for!
Question for all my ladies out there. Did you have any pregnancy food cravings? Asheley really hasn’t yet (I have, but that’s just because I’m a fatty that loves food). And I mean, she always craves pickles and avocado (separate, not together… that would be gross), but that’s not unique to her pregnancy or anything.
I literally had to hide these avocados from Asheley in the garage just so I could actually make this Bacon Jam and Egg Avocado Toast. If I leave ’em on the counter or in the fridge, she has the insane ability to transform herself into a bloodhound and sniff out all traces of the stuff.
Needless to say, Asheley is really happy that Avocado Toast is pretty darn trendy right now. Unique takes on the stuff are popping up in trendy restaurants and are being featured in pretty much every food magazine out there. And since Shared Appetite has become known as a beacon for all things trendy (that’s what sarcasm in print looks like), I wanted to get in on the creative avocado toast action.
Enter this epic Bacon Jam and Egg Avocado Toast.
People, let’s just get this out of the way. Screw ketchup, mustard, and mayo. There’s a new condiment in town that will completely change your life. Bacon Jam.
Say it with me. Bacon Jam.
You will want to put it on anything and everything. You’ll find yourself desiring to eat bacon jam straight up, bathe in it, and even snuggle up with it as you catch up on your DVR with The Bachelor or whatever other trashy reality TV show you’re obsessed with (how did he know?!).
The jam is a bit sweet. A bit acidic. And most importantly. Full of bacon.
And check it out. This is pretty darn exciting. Are you a creative person? Do you love taking pics with your phone AND dabbling in a bit of customized design? You’re totally going to love the Studio App!
You can take or upload a photo, and then add all sorts of design elements like shapes, text, and filters. Even better, for foodies like me, there are all these premade designed stamps that you can add to your photos for a super big impact. I had so much fun playing around the app… it’s pretty addicting!
And now you can get in on the action. Join Schick® Hydro’s Make It Epic campaign by sharing your epic moments with the Studio App.
I shared this totally epic breakfast with the Studio App and added some fun text to the photo!
Bacon Jam and Egg Avocado Toast
- Total Time: 30 minutes
- Yield: 4 Servings 1x
- 4 thick slices crusty bread, toasted
- 4 poached eggs
- 2 avocados
- Bacon Jam (recipe below)
- Kosher salt
- Freshly ground black pepper
for the Bacon Jam
- 1 (16-ounce) package bacon
- 1 sweet onion, thinly sliced
- 1 red onion, thinly sliced
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
- 1 cup apple cider or apple juice
- 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
- Kosher salt
- Mash avocado in a small bowl and season with salt and freshly ground pepper. Top toasted crusty bread slices with a layer of mashed avocado, a heaping spoonful of bacon jam, and a poached egg. Sprinkle egg with Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. Devour.
for the Bacon Jam
- Cook bacon in a heavy-bottom skillet or dutch oven over medium heat until golden brown and crisp. Remove bacon and drain on paper towels. Once cool, crumble bacon. Reserve 2 tabespoons of bacon drippings in dutch oven and discard the rest.
- Reduce heat to medium/medium-low. Cook onions, stirring occasionally, for about 7 minutes or until tender. Add garlic and cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute. Add brown sugar, apple cider/juice, apple cider vinegar, and season with Kosher salt. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally, and then reduce heat to low. Add bacon and simmer until onions are very soft and the mixture has thickened to the consistency of jam. If it becomes too dry, add apple cider/juice or water, 1/4 cup at a time (I added 1/4 cup total). You want the onions to be meltingly soft and the mixture to be thick and syrupy.
- Let cool and then pulse in food processor or with immersion blender to desired consistency. This will make much more than you need for this avocado toast. Store in refrigerator for several days or freeze. Serve it as a condiment for meats with dinner, with a cheese board, or as part of an epic crostini.
- Prep Time: 10 mins
- Cook Time: 20 mins

At first – I was like “bacon jam” like “strawberry jam”? But then I read the ingredient list on this magical concoction of yours – those caramelized onions and bacon and – ooh I am speechless!
Hahaha nothing like strawberry jam… pretty much the greatest condiment known to man kind. You totally need to try it!
Bacon Jam??? Why not. In fact I think it’s a food group, isn’t it?
YES! It indeed should be it’s own food group!
Cate | Chez CateyLou
We had bacon jam for the first time last year in Charleston and I have been dreaming about it ever since. I must make this ASAP! I am obsessed with Avocado toast, and I love your version!! Also love that runny egg collage – YUM!!!!
Yes, it is one of my all time FAVE condiments. It’s sweet, salty, and bacon-y all at the same time!
Justine | Cooking and Beer
You had me a bacon jam! YUM! Pinned!
You know it! Bacon jam for life!
First off I resent the notion that only women have pregnancy food cravings. What about us men? We have pregnancy food cravings too. Am I wrong?
I, for one, am craving like crazy right now that avocado toast and maybe it’s related to A pregnancy…who knows 😉
Hahaha dude, I’ve had plenty of cravings during this pregnancy… but then I just remember that I love food and am fat… so it could be that. LOL
Amy | Club Narwhal
I never knew how much I needed bacon jam in my life until this very moment because it is taking this toast to the next level of epic! While I am a morning hater, I would totally wake up for this 🙂
Hahaha it really makes life worth living Amy! It’s amazing!!!!
Avocado Egg toast is seriously my obsession. And I once had bacon jam on SUSHI and then I fell in all sorts of love with it.
So with avocado egg toast? I am going to marry this.
Don’t tell Mr. FFF. Pinned!
Bacon jam on sushi? Epic!
Yessss! I made bacon jam last year for my best friend and he loved it! I never thought to pair it with avocado, but this sounds like a powerful duo! Pinned! (Asheley and I are one and the same – I too always crave pickles and avocado:)
There is no greater gift to this earth than bacon jam. I want it pumping through my veins in an IV!
You and your perfectly cooked eggs! This looks fan-friggin-tastic! Bacon, eggs AND avocado … Yum!
Hahaha thanks Nicole! I cook them with my sous vide water immersion circulator. They come out perfect every time! So easy!!!
