I love experimenting with breakfast as I don’t eat it often when I’m on my days off or during the week. I don’t know, I tend to either skip breakfast and have a big lunch or go out for brunch. I need a few hours after I wake up before I really start to feel hungry.
When I last visited my bestie in Turkey ??, her mum in law gave me her special homemade strawberry jam. I don’t eat jams that often, actually never but there’s something about her homemade jams that won me over.
Here’s what you need:
- Bread of your choice, toasted or not (up to you)
- Eggs, for poaching
- Fresh avocado ? (cut in half, twist, open and remove the inside with a spoon ?)
- Plum tomatoes ?
- Fresh green chillies, chopped
- Salt and pepper, as per taste
There’s not really a method. Anyone can whip this one up. To make the smashed avocado, transfer the avocado in a bowl, add in the halved plum tomatoes, chopped green chillies, salt, pepper and a tablespoon or two of lemon juice. Smash/ mix it all up.
For the poached eggs, truth be told I use one of those fool proof concoctions where you crack the eggs into them and let them float in the boiling water until eggs are poached. Voila! Perfect poached eggs ??
Finally, it’s time to assemble your breakfast plate. Layer the smashed avo on top of the slices of bread and add the strawberry jam ?. I try to keep it rustic and that’s pretty much it folks! Enjoy this quick and easy plate of breakfast. ✌?
