Poached Egg & Avocado on Toast

Patience Food: Poached Eggs & Avocado 1

Breakfast is without a doubt, my favourite meal of the day. It should never be rushed and one cup of coffee is nearly always never enough. To wake up after a restful nights sleep, pop the radio on and slowly come to your senses to the smell of fresh coffee is one of the cosiest feelings in the world. If I was to choose my favourite Sunday morning dish, It would have to be poached fresh eggs and avocado on toast. Simple, but delicious.

This is a quick and easy breakfast to prepare. Basically just eggs and Avocado on toast. I chose sour dough, but you can use any kind of bread you like. You can flavour the bread by rubbing a fresh garlic clove over it and sprinkling with a little olive oil or just use a  healthy spread of good old fashioned butter.  There’s so many possibilities and you can choose your favorite. I love avocados, but they are very temperamental; you need to catch them when they’re just right and don’t forgot the salt and lemon juice!

You will need:
2 fresh eggs
1 perfectly ripe avocado
1 lemon
Sprinkle of sea salt
A good grinding of fresh pepper
2 slices of bread for your toast

Optional Extras:
Black pudding
A good splodge of sweet chilli jam
Finely diced cucumber, tomatoes and spring onion

Most people know how to poach an egg but I find the best way is to add a little vinegar to simmering water and create a whirlpool with a spoon. Crack the egg into the middle of the whirl and simmer for about 4 min if you like your yoke runny.  Slice the avocado and squeeze the lemon juice over it adding salt and pepper to your taste. Toast your bread and butter or flavour how you like. Layer your poached eggs on top and serve before it gets cold. I love it with a spoonful of sweet chilli jam on the side.

Enjoy. x
