• 1 slice of bread (I use sourdough)
  • 1 egg
  • half an avocado
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • lemon juice, optional


  1. Place a piece of plastic wrap in a small bowl (or coffee cup) and rub the inside with a drop of olive oil.
  2. Crack an egg into the bowl (and plastic) and tie the plastic (with a string) above the egg.
  3. Place in a bowl of simmering water and let it poach for about 4 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, you toast a big piece of (good-quality) bread.
  5. Smash the flesh of half the avocado with a fork until it’s a creamy spread. I like to leave some chunks. Add salt, pepper and some lemon to taste.
  6. Spread the avocado on the toast and place the poached egg (after you’ve removed the plastic, of course) on top.
  7. Eat.
