I am 33 years old and I finally know what kind of eggs I like.
I know. It’s very Julia Roberts and Runaway Bride-ish, except I never left a man at the altar. Almost, but not quite. I didn’t actually leave him there but I was late coming up the steps and it did make for a painfully long 90 seconds of silence. Oops. But, thank goodness He waited for me. That was a perfect day.
Annnnddd…. back to the eggs. My favorite eggs? The Dippy kind, with salt and cracked pepper on a piece of wholegrain toast.
As a child I was allergic to eggs and milk– (even ICE CREAM!!) for just a few years, but those were the formative years for my palate and I grew up not liking eggs at all.
Fast forward to my early days as a newlywed when my aforementioned hunky hunky husband would make scrambled eggs full of sauteed veggies and fresh herbs.. and I ate them. I liked them as long as each bite had enough veg to mask the taste of the actual egg. I would have sworn them off completely if that little voice in my head wasn’t always lecturing me on what an excellent source of protein they were.
Years of squeamishly chewing even the fluffiest of eggs recently led me to try other kinds. I saw a photo of Avocado toast on instagram one day and thought that sounded divine. Basically it’s just toast, spread with ripe avocado and sprinkled with a pinch of salt and pepper.
That toast was the basis for this quick, protein packed yummy breakfast.
Cook one egg using this method for making the perfect dippy egg without flipping (or too much fat!)
It only takes 2-3 minutes, meanwhile toast a piece of multigrain bread. Then spread the toast with 2 tbs. ripe avocado, sprinkle with a smidge of salt and pepper.
Top with your perfect dippy egg and more pepper if needed. IF you happen to have a piece of crispy bacon just hanging around, definitely add a few bacon crumbles.
There. That’s it.
It may seem simplistic to blog about making toast and cooking an egg, but when these ingredients come together– they make a nice little breakfast party. Who knew?!
Happy Monday friends!
