It’s a Sunday and I’m not working so it means I can enjoy my favourite meal time…brunch 🙂 Eggs and avocado are so trendy at the moment and shoved in your face constantly on Instagram and the likes but there’s no denying they are a great combo. So I’m just about to add to all those other millions of avo and eggs post and tell you how I like to eat mine…

What you need for 2 people:

2 eggs

1ripe avocado

Good quality sour dough bread toasted

4 slices Serrano ham

Olive oil, salt, pepper, chilli flakes and a good quality chilli pesto

Bring a pot of water to the boil and add salt. Turn down the heat so the water remains at a simmer. To make things easier when poaching eggs I firstly crack the egg onto a small plate or bowl and slide the egg into the water off the plate


Allow the eggs to simmer for around 4 mins before removing to a plate using a slotted spoon.

While the eggs are poaching place the flesh of the avocado in a bowl with a drizzle of olive oil, salt, pepper and a pinch of chilli flakes. Using a fork smash the avocado and combine it with the seasoning. Drizzle two slices of toasted sour dough with olive oil and spread the avocado over each one.


Place the Serrano ham on top followed by an egg on each slice and top with a dollop of good quality chilli pesto or a basil pesto if you prefer a milder flavour.


Have a great Sunday, xx
