How Do You Like Your Eggs In The Morning?

I am full of good intentions when it comes to making New Year resolutions, quit smoking, exercise more and eat healthily, although starting on the first day of January remains a stumbling block.

On the morning after the night before there are only two possible outcomes: one there will be sickness and the inability to stomach a mere sip of water or two I am really hungry and want bacon.

If like me you might awaken on day one of the ‘deep New Year cleanse’ craving a fry up instead of that lovely 0% fat yogurt in the fridge, my take on bacon, egg and toast provides an amicable solution.

Bacon, Egg and Avocado on toast.

The bacon is grilled, eggs are poached and the avocado acts as a butter for the toast. It tastes delightful and is a guilt free brunch that will fill you up nicely… well until you order that pizza later for dinner.


Serves two

  • 4 slices of bread (sourdough is my top pick)
  • 1 avocado
  • 8 slices of streaky bacon
  • 2-4 eggs
  • 1 tsp of ground sea salt
  • Fresh black pepper


  • Grill the bacon until it is crispy and bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil.
  • Cut the avocado in half and place the flesh into a bowl, add the salt and mash together. Taste and add more salt if desired

  • Using a fork make a swirl in the centre of the water and drop in the egg. I always crack the egg on to a saucer to keep the yolk intact and to pick out any little weird things, I am really fussy.
  • Poach the eggs for 2-3 minutes, until the white has hardened, but the yolk is still soft.
  • Spread the avocado mix on to the toast, layer on the crispy bacon, place the poached egg on top and finish with a sprinkle of black pepper.
