Are grated eggs the ultimate avocado toast topping?
The grated-eggs trend has been showing up on TikTok lately, with home chefs putting them on almost anything. But TikToker Sarah Thomas-Drawbaugh (@healthyishfoods) seems to have perfected the hack with her Grated Egg Avocado Toast.
Thomas-Drawbaugh’s video, which shows her creating a luxurious-looking slice of avo toast featuring some crumbly pieces of hard-boiled egg, has drawn millions of views since she posted it in December.
Here’s the problem — avocado toast is already perfect. Can something as simple as grated eggs really make it better? To find out, we tried the recipe ourselves.

How to make TikTok’s grated egg avocado toast
Here’s what you’ll need for this recipe:
- 2 hard-boiled eggs
- 2 slices of sourdough bread
- 1 avocado
- A cheese grater
- Chili flakes
To start, toast your bread and halve, pit and peel your avocado. Then, slice each avo half into thin, vertical pieces before spreading them across both pieces of toast.
Next, run your hard-boiled eggs over a cheese grater, holding the grater right over the toast. This will allow the yolks and whites to mix together as they crumble down onto your toast.
Finally, add chili flakes and a drizzle of honey. Then, it’s time to dig in.
This hack seemed a little extra, but once we got our eyes on it, we could see why it’s so popular. Not only does this toast look delicious, but it also tastes better than almost any avo toast variety we’ve ever had.
The egg yolk and white, mixed together in tiny little pieces, takes on a totally new flavor. All of it combines perfectly with the sweet honey and the heat of the chili flakes.
On top of it all, this really isn’t so hard to make. The worst part is boiling the eggs, which takes less than 10 minutes. The grating itself is just as easy as grating cheese. Overall, we’d definitely recommend trying this.
