Recipe

Avocado on toast with chipotle chilli

By Charlotte Clarke

This healthy breakfast-style food is the simplest of egg recipes and proof that a nourishing meal need not take up too much time.

These humble ingredients are packed with complex carbs, protein, healthy fats and heaps of flavour. The humble egg has long been a breakfast staple and there’s a good reason why. Egg nutritional benefits are in generous supply; rich in protein and high in omega-3 fatty acids, eggs effectively keep your hunger cravings at bay. Therefore, avocado on toast with egg is not only delicious, but will also leave you feeling satisfied for longer.

To make sure your egg is impeccably poached, we advise leaving to simmer for 3 minutes to ensure a perfectly oozing egg yolk. For a glorious tasting poached egg, we recommend our Heritage Breeds Copper Maran Hen Eggs due to their deep amber yolks.

Although traditionally branded a breakfast meal, avocado on toast is certainly a versatile dish that wouldn’t look out of place at the dinner table. Once this recipe is in your repertoire, a healthy and easy meal is only a few egg cracks away.
