It’s a dreary morning in the British Isles and I am ravenous after a run, so what better than eggs and avo on toast?
My fridge is usually half empty by the time the weekend is finished but thankfully have got my staples. Eggs. Avo. Bread. (Okay, so I am a sourdough lover but today no such luck, I have bakery wholemeal, good enough).
There’s no messing around with this brekkie, you can stick with the basics or jazz it up as you like. My boyf likes to mash the eggs up with pepper and mustard so it’s more like a spread. I am not so inventive mind you. I cover the toast with thinly sliced avo, chunks of eggy goodness on top and then I get chopping with whatever I have left in the fridge. Today we have baby tomatoes, cucumber and gherkins. Yum.
This is super filling and will definitely keep you going until lunch. I had this over the weekend too which was a lifesaver when I was off out to a lunchtime wine tasting afterwards (crikey, day time drinking anyone? It’s a killer!).
Full of good fats and the creamy avocado negates any need for buttering your bread (I mean, you can if you like though..). Such a wholesome breakfast and so easy to whip up. It’s one of those recipes that is almost not even a recipe. But I’ve attached it below just in case you need some steps.
Eggs & Avo on Sourdough
A simple combo packed with protein and fats. Healthy, tasty and good for kitchen-phobics.
- 4 Eggs
- 1 Avocado
- 4 Slices Sourdough or wholemeal bread
- Optional Extras Herbs, Salad, Tomatoes, Olives, Gherkins, Pine Nuts etc
Put your eggs on to boil as to your preference (I like mine hard boiled! 7-8mins)
Slice the avocado into thins, wash and prep your extra bits (in my case, the tomatoes, gherkins and cucumber)
Once your eggs are done, tip out the boiling water from the pan and replace with cold water. Once cooled start to peel the eggs, put your bread in the toaster as you do this.
Once all the eggs are peeled and your toast has popped it's time to assemble, put the sliced avocado on the toast, chop the eggs and chuck ontop. Garnish with your extras, I served mine with cherry tomatoes, sliced gherkins and cucumber. Give a generous shake of salt and pepper then get stuck in.
