Avocado Toast with Poached Eggs

Breakfast | January 15, 2015 | By

Avocado toast is hands-down my new favorite breakfast food. I’ve seen it popping up on more and more brunch menus in New York, which makes me really happy now that I can get it while eating out and not just homemade. But I really think my homemade recipe beats most restaurants. I add a lot of fresh lemon and pepper flakes to make it tangy and spicy, just the way I like it. My other signature feature is adding fresh avocado slices on top of the smash mixture- you can never have enough avocado, right?

While I was home in California for Christmas break I stopped by my local market one morning and picked up a fresh loaf of whole grain fitness bread, micro greens and some ripe avocados. I went out to the backyard and picked a fresh lemon to mix into the avocado smash. I made avocado toast with poached eggs for my whole family, and they are it up. I love that this meal makes a pretty healthy breakfast but also leaves you feeling full and satisfied.

Bon Appétit!

 Avocado Toast with Poached Eggs

2 Slices Whole Grain Bread (I used a fitness loaf)

2 Eggs

1 Tsp White Vinegar

1 Handful Micro greens

2 Ripe Avocados

1/2 Tsp Olive Oil

1 Tsp Fresh Lemon Juice

Pinch of Salt

1/2 Tsp Pepper Flakes

Directions:

Avocado Smash: Place 1 1/2 avocados into a bowl. Add the olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper flakes into the bowl. Mash lightly, making sure to leave large chunks in the mixture.

Poached Eggs: Boil a small pot of water and add 1 Tsp white vinegar. Crack an egg into a small bowl. Create a swirling motion in the pot of water, and slowly dip the small bowl with the egg into the boiling water, letting it slip into the water egg white first. Cook for 3 minutes and remove the egg with a strainer spoon.

Assembly: Place half a handful of micro greens onto each slice of bread. Smash half the avocado mixture onto the toast. Slice the remaining half avocado, and place the slices on top of the mash. Slowly place a poached egg onto each toast.

    If you didn’t have me convinced from the very beginning (but you did), that very last photo would have been the one to send me over the edge. Absolutely gorgeous…absolutely delicious. <3
