Pico Avocado Toast

Breakfast, Recipes

This is a super simple and refreshing breakfast that will leave you feeling full, longer. Avocado toast with fresh pico, topped with a poached egg. The poached egg is a little unconventional though since it is made in a ladle. I struggle making a true poached egg and a few weeks ago I saw someone post on their Instagram how they use a ladle to make a perfectly round poached egg, so I had to give it a try. It’s practically fail proof! View the video below to see how you can make a perfect poached egg for breakfast.

INGREDIENTS  

  • 1-2 tbsp Red Onions, diced
  • ¼ Lime, juiced
  • 4-5 Cherry Tomatoes, diced
  • 1 tbsp Cilantro
  • 1 egg
  • ½ Avocado
  • 1 Whole Grain Toast
  • Salt, Pepper, Cayenne and Paprika. Optional

INSTRUCTIONS 

  • Heat a small pot of water over high heat and bring to a boil.
  • While water is heating up, dice red onion, tomatoes and cilantro and combine in small bowl. Squeeze ¼ lime juice over the mixture, stir and set aside.
  • Put bread in toaster. Once toast is done, transfer to a plate, cut avocado in half and take half of the avocado and smash it on the toast.
  • Once water is boiling, take out a mettle ladle and either put olive oil on it or spray it with non-stick spray. Crack one egg in the ladle and place in water but do not submerge completely. Once the edges of the egg are white, you will submerge the ladle in the hot water so that it cooks the top of the egg.
  • Wait about 2 minutes until slightly jiggly but top is white and carefully drain water from ladle. Be careful not to drop the egg.
  • Top toast with pico.
  • Carefully place the egg on top of the pico and then season with the following, which are optional: Salt, Pepper, Cayenne and Paprika.

Bruschetta Inspired Avocado Toast

Breakfast, Recipes

Avocado toast has become very populate over the last few years but how many of you just eat avocado on toast? Boring! Change it up with this Bruschetta inspired avocado toast. It is easy to make and tastes incredible. Try with a sunny side up egg, scrambled eggs or no egg. I have tried all three and they all taste great. If you are looking for a vegan or vegetarian option then just skip the egg and use some extra avocado to fill you up. 

INGREDIENTS  

  • 1 Slice Bread
  • 4-5 Cherry Tomatoes halved
  • 1 tsp Balsamic Glaze
  • 1 Egg
  • ½ Avocado
  • 1 Handful Arugula
  • Salt & Pepper to taste

INSTRUCTIONS 

  • Put bread in toaster
  • While bread is toasting, prepare tomatoes and avocado by cutting tomatoes in halves and slicing avocado into slivers. Save other half of the avocado but putting in a container or plastic bag. To prevent browning, rub a tiny amount of lemon juice on avocado before putting away.
  • Take toast out and place on plate, spread avocado on toast, and put a handful of arugula on avocado and top with cherry tomatoes.
  • Cook an egg sunny side up or over easy. The best way to do this is to have anon-stick pan, heat it on low and then place egg in pan on low heat until cooked to your liking. You don’t want to turn the egg over unless you prefer your eggs cooked all the way through or if you are going for a fried egg. Lightly season with salt and pepper.
  • Top the toast with egg, drizzle balsamic glaze on top and ENJOY!

NOTES

  • Chopping up the arugula and tomatoes with the balsamic glaze can make it easier to eat but it won’t plate as nice. 
  • Easily make this into a sandwich by using two pieces of bread of putting in between a pita bread. 
  • Adding pickled onion is a great touch if you are an onion lover. Simply slice red onion and let sit in some vinegar for 15-20 minutes and place on top of arugula.
