Poached Eggs and Avocado

Sometimes I just really fancy something different for breakfast. 
I love eggs and avocado and so this is just a very quick recipe to knock up for a delicious and very nutritious breakfast.  

Not all people are a fan of chilli in the morning but for me it works well and gives this dish a little kick to get you going!

Ingredients: (to serve 2)

1/2 a red chilli (deseeded and chopped into small pieces)
2 avocados
Small bunch of fresh coriander
2 pieces rye bread
2 large eggs
Salt and pepper

Cut the avocados in half, remove the stone and scoop out the flesh. Chop into small pieces and mix in a large bowl with the chopped coriander leaves and chilli. 
To poach the eggs, put a large pan of water on the hob on a high heat. When the water is simmering break an egg into a ramekin and add a drop of vinegar. Using a balloon whisk, whisk the water round until you create a sort of whirlpool and then pour the egg from the ramekin into the centre of the water. Poach for approximately 3 minutes and then remove with a large spoon. Repeat this for the other egg.
Serve the eggs, seasoned with salt and pepper on top of the rye bread with a generous serving of the avocado mixture. 

This breakfast also goes well with my quick mango smoothie:

Peel and chop the flesh of one very ripe mango, removing the large stone from the middle.  Blitz the mango in a food processor with 3 tbsp of natural yoghurt, one banana, 1tsp of caster sugar and 175ml milk. Serve over ice. 


  1. This looks absolutely delicious!!!

    Your blog is great and a real inspiration! I have only just discovered it but count me in as a new reader.
    I have recently started my own lifestyle blog and would be so grateful if you could have a look at it (www.nomadicdiary.com) and let me know what u think (if u like feel free to follow me on bloglovin as well). Keep up the great work xx

  2. Love it Miss Brigstock!!!! Seriously yum!

  3. This sounds fantastic! I love avocado on toast just by itself - but this takes it to the next level!

  4. Beautiful - I love all the colors in the avocado, toast and egg - that's my kind of breakfast Katie! And I am definitely a fan of a kick of spice in the morning. I even like a tiny pinch of cayenne in my smoothies - you can barely taste it, but it warms the back of your throat.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. It's really appreciated and lovely to hear some feedback. Katie x
