Anytime Toast Trio

Whether you’re like me and you obsessively read other people’s food blogs & stalk foodstagrams, or you just casually watch the Food Network, you know that toast is a major craze right now. I see pictures of avocado toast daily as I scroll through Instagram and Facebook, so I thought I would give three variations of my favorite toasts that you can cook up anytime!

Avocado Toast with a Poached Egg

This is one of the toasts I see often, but there is definitely a reason for it. Avo Toast is one of my favorite breakfast foods, although you can make it anytime and it would be just as delicious.

Ingredients:

1 slice of thick & crusty bread, toasted (I often use sourdough)

1 half of an avocado, mashed

1 egg, poached

Olive Oil, for drizzling

Sea Salt & Cracked Pepper, to taste

Directions:

  1. Toast bread, place avocado half on top, smash down with a fork.
  2. Crack egg into a small bowl (this is so you have more control over the egg when you drop it into the water)
  3. Bring a sauce pan filled with about 1-2 inches of water to a boil (not a full rolling boil, just enough that it starts bubbling), then reduce the heat to a low simmer.
  4. Use a large cooking spoon to stir the water, making a vortex in the pan. Drop in the egg. With the water moving in a circular motion the egg will form into a spherical shape.
  5. Cook for 2-3 minutes, gently remove to avoid breaking the yoke and tap the yoke softly to test the elasticity. It should bounce back easily after you tap it.
  6. Drizzle olive oil on toast, top toast with poached egg, sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  7. Enjoy!
