Poached egg with smashed avocado

For a cooked breakfast I love the combination of avocado and egg, mushroom works nicely too. This is a great way to start the day, its healthy but tasty too. It’s not overly complicated either. For poached eggs I find I get the best results using cling film but I cook it slightly longer when using cling film as I like to make sure it’s cooked fully.


  • Avocado
  • Egg
  • Toast
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Paprika¬†


  1. Boil some water in a saucepan
  2. Cut a small amount of cling film and rub the inside with Olive Oil
  3. Place the cling film on top on the glass and crack the egg onto it
  4. Bring the sides up and twist at the top
  5. Once the water has boiled place the egg in simmering water for 5-7 minutes
  6. Meanwhile toast some bread and cut the Avocado
  7. Place the Avocado on the bread and use a fork to break the avocado up
  8. Place the egg on top and drizzle Olive Oil. Salt and Pepper to taste.

Or try something just as simple…

Scrambled egg with Avocado

This is even easier and still fills you up. I find avocado refreshing in the morning but personally don’t like to have it on its own as sometimes it can lack flavour so it’s perfect as a side. This is really easy to make and exactly what you need before a busy day.
