My new favorite breakfast dish, Poached Eggs with Avocado and Spicy Lime Sauce!
I am trying to add some protein to my breakfast, as I am usually a coffee and “sweet something” person. We usually have eggs for breakfast on the weekends, plain omelet – my daughter’s first choice or scrambled with smoked salmon and capers on side. I have cooked them so many times..I needed to try something new…poached eggs…
Yummy poached eggs with avocado on toast, a touch of spicy lime sauce and here you have a delicious combination. The balance between the sweetness of the eggs and the kick of the sauce is perfect.
- 2 fresh large eggs fridge cold
- 1 tbsp white vinegar
- 1 avocado peeled, pitted and cut into pieces
- 3 slices of bacon
- 1 slice toasted bread
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- 1 lime juice and zest
- 1 tsp chopped kalamata olives
- 1 small chilli finely chopped
To make the spicy lime sauce, in a small bowl combine the lime juice and zest, chopped olives and chilli. Heat the oil in a small pan over low heat for 2 minutes and add the spicy lime mixture (reserve 1 tsp of the mixture in the bowl for later use) and remove the pan from heat.
To poach the eggs, half fill a medium non-stick saucepan with water, add the vinegar and bring to boil over high heat. Reduce the heat so the water is just bubbling. Crack one egg into a small bowl and then gently transfer the egg to the simmering water. Repeat with the other egg, being careful to space them well apart. Poach eggs for 3 minutes. Using a slotted spoon remove the eggs from the water and place them in the warm spicy lime sauce until ready to serve.
Meanwhile, heat a frying pan over medium-high heat, add the slices of bacon and cook for 2 minutes each side or until the edges look crispy. Transfer to a plate lined with a paper towel.
Gently fold the avocado pieces into the reserved 1 tsp spicy lime sauce and season with salt and pepper.
Top the toasted slice of bread with the crispy bacon, avocado mixture and place the eggs on top of the avocado. Garnish with some sauce and it's ready o be served
