Poached Eggs on Smashed Avocado Toast with Smoked Bacon


I love brunch – it’s probably my favourite meal of the day!

This is a quick and easy way to make a simple brunch taste a-ma-zing!

Ingredients (per person)

  • Slices of wholemeal bread – 1 or 2
  • Eggs – x 2
  • Slices of bacon (I cut the fat off) – x 2
  • Avocado – x 0.5
  • Coconut oil (or other oil) – 0.5 tsp
  • Lemon rapeseed oil – 0.5 tsp
  • Salt & pepper – to taste

Make it

  1. Pre-heat a griddle pan / frying pan and add coconut oil / your other oil
  2. Pop the bacon in a griddle pan – turning every couple of mins
  3. Put the bread into the toaster
  4. Pop the kettle on (you need boiling water for the poached eggs)
  5. Grease the pan you are going to use to poach your eggs (with oil or butter) and make sure you do the sides and the bottom – we don’t want any egg stuck to the sides
  6. Put the boiling water into a pan and put the cooker on so that the water is gently simmering
  7. Scoop the avocado into a mixing bowl and add the rapeseed oil and mash it up (I use a potato masher)
  8. Stir the water in the pan with a spoon so that the water is spinning and crack the eggs directly into the middle of the water – leave for 2-5 mins (depending on how you prefer your eggs)
  9. Spread mashed avocado onto the toast
  10. Turn off the eggs and bacon – best not to forget to turn the cooker off like I have done a few times – eek!
  11. Take the eggs out of the pan with a serving spoon and drain off any water
  12. Pop the eggs on the avocado toast
  13. Add the bacon to the plate
  14. Sprinkle salt and pepper

Eat and enjoy!
