Avocado, Smoked Salmon and Poached Egg on Sourdough
I woke up in the mood for brunch. It was the weekend after all. I had been sent a photo of a breakfast dish made by my niece and had it in mind for days. I happened to have the ingredients in the fridge. So it was a joy to plate it up in my kitchen and a fine meal it was too.
In addition to tasting really good, this dish is packed with good fats and the feelgood factor while lowering cholesterol.
Serve with a large pot of tea.
For 4 people:
2 ripe avocados, mashed
4 slices of smoked salmon
4 large eggs
4 thick slices of sourdough bread
Begin by preparing the avocado. Mash lightly – add some freshly ground black pepper. I don’t think it calls for salt as the smoked salmon is salty but add some if you want to.
Cut four thick slices of sourdough and toast. Spread with the avocado and lay the smoked salmon on top.
Poach the eggs – I poach for a minute or two – remove with a slotted spoon and then drain on kitchen paper.
Pop an egg on top of each toast, avo and smoked salmon combo. Add a grinding of black pepper and eat.
