Avocado & Poached Egg on Sourdough



Serves: 1

Prep Time: 5 mins

Cook Time: 5 mins

Difficulty: 3/10



1 egg                                                                              

1/2 avocado, sliced                        

1 slice sourdough                          

A splash of vinegar (any type)

1 tsp salted butter

Sprinkle of chilli flakes


1) Half fill a wide saucepan with boiling salted water and add a splash of vinegar. Bring it to a simmer on a medium heat.

2) Meanwhile, put the sourdough in to toast and crack an egg into a ramekin.

3) Create a gentle whirlpool in the water with a spoon. Slowly tip the egg into the water, white first, and cook for 2-3 mins.

4) While the egg is cooking, cut the avocado in half and remove the seed. Scoop the flesh out neatly with a dessert spoon and place flat edge down on a chopping board. Carefully slice the avocado from the skinny top end to the fatter bottom end and season with salt & pepper.

5) Remove the egg with a slotted spoon (check the yolk with the back of a teaspoon and ensure the egg white is not watery)

6) Butter the toast. Transfer the avocado to the toast using a large knife to keep it in place, once it's on top, gently push to create the domino effect. Top with the poached egg and sprinkle with chilli flakes.
