Quick Sunday Brunch

dsc_0469

I have been trying to replace the huge amount of carbs I usually consume with some lovely protein and healthy fats, so my new favourite Sunday brunch has become avocado on wholewheat, rye or sour dough toast.  This weekend I served it with 2 rashers of bacon and a poached egg.

Ingredients

1 Slice wholewheat bread

2 Rashers of bacon, fat removed

1/2 Avocado

Lime juice

Black pepper

1 Egg

 

Method

  1. Cut the fat from the bacon and pop under the grill
  2. Remove the flesh of the avocado from the skin, put into a small bowl with a splash of lime juice and grind in some black pepper.  Take a potato masher or fork and mash thoroughly
  3. Boil the kettle and crack an egg into a small bowl or cup
  4. Put the water into a medium sized saucepan and heat until the water begins to simmer.  Stir the water with a spoon and add the egg
  5. Put the toaster on
  6. Turn off the grill and leave the bacon to keep warm
  7. Take the toast and pop on a plate, spread the avocado generously
  8. Put the bacon on top
  9. Add the egg
  10. Enjoy with a nice cuppa !
