avocado toast

Last week, the kids and I had a great opportunity to chicken-sit for some friends of ours, and the payment was… eggs! Fresh eggs are the best (and my husband would add, “especially when they’re not our chickens!”). I still remember the jingle from those old egg commercials, “the incredible edible egg!” And eggs are a big hit at our house for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. The girly gardener prefers her’s over easy with grits on top; she’s a southern girl through and through. My boys like them scrambled because they’re simple men at heart. Momma likes her eggs poached, because clearly I’m a bit more high-maintenance than my children. And the hubs likes them anyway I cook them; he’s a smart man.

During my plant-based eating stint a few years ago, I obviously wasn’t putting butter on my toast, so swapping it out for avocado mashed with a bit of lime juice was a super delicious substitute! Now that eggs are back in my diet, I love to combine these two elements for tasty avocado toast with a poached egg on top. The rich golden yolk breaks over the toast, and it’s like heaven on a plate and super good for you too! avocado toast

This can be whipped up in a jiffy on any busy morning. So, how do you create this for your own breakfast (lunch or dinner)?

  1. Fill a small pot halfway with water. Add a tablespoon of white vinegar and 1/4 tsp of salt and bring to a boil. Crack egg into ramekin and set aside. salt in water
  2. While waiting for water to boil (don’t watch that pot… you know the rest), halve avocado and remove the pit. avocado pit
  3. Scoop out the avocado and use a fork to mash it up in a bowl. Now, you can either add the juice of half a lime to your avocado with salt and pepper to taste, or if you have some salsa on hand, add a tablespoon or two to your mashed avocado for a spicy kick. (Here I used some homemade Pico de Gallo I had in the fridge.)quick guac
  4. Once your water comes to a boil, use a slotted spoon and begin stirring the boiling water in a circle pattern around the pot (you want to create a little whirlpool). Once your water is swirling, pour in your egg. Put the lid on your pot, and remove it from the heat. Set your timer for 4 minutes 30 seconds. (Sorry to be so exact, but these instructions are pretty crucial.) boiling water
  5. While your egg cooks, toast your bread and spread on your avocado mash (aka quick guac).
  6. When the timer dings, remove your egg from the hot water with a slotted spoon, and let any excess water drop off. Place your perfectly poached egg on top of your avocado toast. Salt and pepper egg to taste and enjoy (especially with a good cup of coffee)! avocado toast meal

I’d love to know how you enjoy eating eggs! We’re always looking for new dishes to create with the incredible edible egg!
