1. Prepare an ice-water bath by putting ice cubes and cold water into a mixing bowl; reserve.
2. Put the eggs onto the tray inside the steamer. Secure lid.
3. Select Manual, set timer for 8 minutes and press Start.
4. While eggs are cooking, prepare the toast. Brush one side of the bread with the olive oil. Toast to desired doneness in either a toaster oven or wall oven. Mash the avocado in a small bowl with the salt. Divide the avocado mixture among the four pieces of toast; reserve.
5. Once timer expires, immediately transfer eggs to the ice-water bath to stop the cooking process. Allow to sit for 1 minute and then remove from the water and remove the shell.
6. Quarter each egg on top of each avocado toast. Sprinkle with the chili pepper flakes. Serve immediately.
