Simple Poached Egg and Avocado Toast
A breakfast of champions doesn’t have to consist of eggs, hash browns, bacon and french toast everyday. It just has to be tasty and filling. But this breakfast is more than that. This breakfast is also exactly as the title states, simple! But now it’s not just simple to make but also fits the rest of the criteria. It’s absolutely yummy and definitely filling! One other thing, it’s perfect anytime! So whether you make this Simple Poached Egg and Avocado Toast for breakfast, snack, lunch or even for dinner, I promise you will not be disappointed.
Keep in mind sometimes the simplest meals are created within fifteen minutes or less. Who says you have to spend one, two or three hours in a kitchen for a fabulous meal?!
And I don’t know about you but if you’re anything like me, breakfast is a must in my household. I just simply cannot get going without breakfast. And eggs and avocado breakfast with coffee made under 15 minutes is just perfect for me. This simple poached egg and avocado toast is it! Hands down!
For the avocado spread I added a hint of cayenne pepper and chives. Let me tell you this combination is just perfeccct! So if you have chives growing in your garden like I do, this is a perfect way to use them! The chives just adds such flavor to the avocado spread that works so well with a poached drippy egg. So DO NOT forget the chives!
And if you don’t like spicy avocado that’s okay, just exclude the cayenne pepper, you will not offend me. The chives however is another story!
So yes one last rant about the chives, if you are not growing chives in your garden, make sure to buy some. Try it, you will not regret it!
