My favourite Breakfast

Last year Nigella Lawson was criticised for her recipe of Avocado on Toast with people saying it was too simple. Well sometimes the best dishes are the simple ones, if you follow me on Instagram you will know I am a massive fan of Avocado (#teamavocado). This is my twist of Nigella's Avocado on toast with a few tweaks and it it my absolute favourite breakfast.

This recipe is for one person and at only 285 calories it is super healthy and delicious.


Half an Avocado
Half a red Chilli
A small bunch of Coriander
1 Egg
1 Crispbake (you can buy these in Sainsbury's)
1 TBSP of white wine vinegar
Salt and Pepper to taste

Start by putting a pan of water on the hob and bring to the boil. Next, scoop out the flesh from half an avocado, cut into chunks and add to a bowl (TIP: when you cut the avocado in half, leave the stone in the half you are not using as this will keep it fresh for when you do use it in a different dish). Mash the avocado with a fork until it is a chunky paste. Next slice the chilli and finely chop the coriander and add this to the avocado. Have a little taste and add salt and pepper if needed and leave this to one side.

Next turn the pan of water down to a gentle simmer and add a table spoon of white wine vinegar. Crack the egg into a ramekin, stir the water briskly and tip the egg into the vortex (I love that word!) Leave the egg to poach until its as firm as you like it (usually 2-3 minutes for me).

I used to struggle with poached eggs until someone told me the tip about putting vinegar into the water and honestly it was a revelation. The 1st time I tried it the egg was perfect and they have been perfect every time since.

Whilst the egg is poaching transfer the avocado, chilli and coriander mix onto the crispbake on your chosen breakfast plate. When ready remove the egg from the pan and place on some kitchen roll and carefully pat it to remove any excess water and then put the egg on top of the avocado. Garnish with a sprinkle of chopped coriander (or Cayenne Pepper if you like a little more heat).

I'd love you hear what you think of this recipe and also let me know what your favourite breakfasts are.

Well, that's all for now.




  1. I'm not a huge fan of avocado. But this actually sounds quite tasty. Might cook it for a friend so I can have a try. Thanks for the recipe Steve x

  2. Sounds lovely, I too now have perfect poaches eggs because of vinegar and the swirl! Best tip I ever learned from A chef

  3. I know this may be seen as simple but I am TOO simple with food. I need to experiment more! xx
