If you love mixing sweet and salty, then you will love these Ham and Egg Breakfast Tostadas. They are topped with a a strawberry peach avocado smash adding some sweet into your eggy breakfast.
This is the kind of breakfast that happens when Blake “works from home.” Lucky for him, Minneapolis hosted the All-Star Game last week, so his boss told him to work from home instead of fighting the mess downtown.
There’s pros and cons of him working from home.
Pro- I have a reason to make scrumptious breakfast and not feel wasteful.
Con- We only have 1 office.
Pro- I can sleep in past 6:30 when his alarm usually goes off (I am a 1 alarm kinda girl. The thing goes off and I’m UP).
Con- I make huge messes during the day. Messes that Blake usually doesn’t see. I don’t like being “watched” while the Fit Foodie magic is happening in the kitchen.
I do want to mention his choice of attire- Camo shorts and no shirt…because duh, he’s “working form home.”
So about this breakfast.
“Literally an explosion of flavor in your mouth,” a quote directly from Mr. Blake. The Strawberry Peach Avocado Mash really hit the spot. I love mixing sweet and salty, hot and cold…all kinds of opposites, you name it!
I started off by placing a piece of ham on top of a corn tortilla and broiling it for a few minutes until the ham began to turn golden brown around the edges.
Then, on top went a fried egg + avocado smash + cilantro + sriracha.

Now if only this breakfast could magically appear for every morning. I’m banking on technology. Give it like 20 years and you’ll be able to snap your finger and have a fresh, beautiful breakfast on your kitchen table.
Maybe that’s called a personal chef?
I wasn’t sure how the sriracha was going to be with the sweetness from the avocado mash, but it worked. Love me some sriracha.
These drippy eggs. OH EM GEE.
Do you work from home? Do you AND your spouse work from home?
