Breakfast Toasts With Poached Eggs and Avocado

Always looking for something different for breakfast? Tired of the same old, same old?

If you like toast, like eggs and like avocado then try this one. Together they are a refreshing new “love this” dish to serve.

  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1 tsp. fresh lime juice
  • pinch of salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 3 slices sesame bread, lightly toasted (if serving 3 people)
  • 1 cup lightly packed fresh pea shoots
  • olive oil for drizzling
  • 1 tbsp. white vinegar
  • 3 large eggs

In a small bowl, scoop the flesh from the avocado, add the lime juice, salt and pepper.

Mash with a fork until mostly smooth, with some chunks still remaining. Divide the avocado among the 3 slices, spreading evenly. Top with the pea shoots and drizzle with oil.

In a deep skillet with about 2 inches of water, simmer and stir in the vinegar. Crack an egg into a small bowl and gingerly let slide into the water. Repeat with the remaining 2 eggs. Poach until the whites are set yet the yolk is still a little runny. For a firmer egg, cook another 2 minutes longer.

Remove the eggs, one at a time with a slotted spoon and place on each slice of toast.

Serve immediately. In a word….YUMMMMMMMY!
