Avocado & Poached Egg Sourdough Toast

Hello everyone, today’s recipe is for one of my all time favourite breakfasts, Avocado & Poached Egg Sourdough Toast. There is nothing better than a perfect piece of sour dough toast topped with eggs and avocado. I’ve kept this simple – just some smashed and sliced avocado for some different textures. I poached my egg for three minutes so it still has a perfect runny centre.

I’ve got quite a few recipes sitting in draft that I need to write up and with you all. Including a banoffee pie, some Easter cookies, bruschetta and a lovely slow cooked Thai pork with noodles.

  1. Mash the avocado and season to taste with salt and pepper.  I sometimes like to keep a couple of slices of avocado back to decorate the toast.

  2. Toast the sourdough bread and top with the mashed avocado.

  3. Bring a pan of water to the boil and then turn down to a simmer.  Poach the eggs for 3 minutes.

  4. Place the poached eggs on top of the avocado toast.  I added some extra seasoning, a few chilli flakes and some fresh coriander.
