Egg and toast are probably the most versatile foods you can find. They are pretty easy to prepare too. You can just add an avocado and come up with a healthy breakfast. Egg and avocado taste so good together.
If you find fried eggs unhealthy because of the oil in them, you can definitely opt for a healthier way of cooking your egg. And in this recipe, it’s through poaching.
Here’s how to make poached egg and avocado on a toast for breakfast or for any meal:
• 1 or 2 eggs
• 2 pieces of toast
• 1 avocado
• 2 Tbsp. Butter (optional for added flavor)
• Salt and pepper
Poach the egg.
To poach the egg, bring 3 cups of water in a small deep pan to a boil on low to medium heat. Crack the egg into a small bowl first instead of dropping the egg directly to the boiling water. This prevents the yolk from breaking.
Add 1 Tbsp. of white vinegar and a pinch of salt to the boiling water. This is the secret to a good poached egg.
Gently stir the boiling water with a spatula to create a little whirlpool in it. Drop in the first egg. The whirlpool kind of holds the egg together in the center of the pan instead of spreading everywhere. You can also gather the egg on itself with the use of the spatula. After 3 minutes, you can gently lift the egg out of the boiling water with the use of a straining spoon. Repeat the process for the remaining egg/s.
Place the poached egg on a plate with a paper towel to drain the excess water.
Toast your bread.
Spread the butter onto your toast. (This is optional.)
Prepare the avocado.
Cut the avocado in half. You can use just half of the avocado, or the whole fruit depending on what you prefer.
Take half of the avocado and slice the meat into cubes. Gently scoop out the avocado into a bowl. Get a fork or a whisk and start mashing the avocado according to the consistency you prefer.
Spread the mashed avocado on your toast.
Add some pepper on top of the avocado spread for flavor.
Add the poached egg onto your avocado and toast.
Add freshly-ground pepper on top of the poached egg. You can add cayenne pepper for spice too if you like.
Serve and enjoy!
