Poached Egg Avocado Toast

Try this delicious and filling addition to avocado toast! The key to this recipe is getting everything prepped and organized ahead of the actual poaching so that you don’t get distracted and over-cook your eggs.

Serves 1 (multiply ingredients by how many servings you need)


  • 1/2 Avocado, pitted and sliced

  • 2 eggs

  • 2 slices bread

  • Salt and pepper to taste

What to do:

  • Boil water to poach eggs in a medium saucepan

  • Cut bread for toast, slice avocado

  • Toast bread and place avocado on top

  • Once boiling, add a splash of white vinegar (few teaspoons) to the water to help the egg coagulate

  • Reduce the water to a simmer and whirlpool the water with a spoon

  • Crack your egg into a soup ladle to more easily transfer it smoothly into the middle of the whirlpool. Tip the egg into the whirlpool and set a timer for 3 minutes.

  • Remove the egg with a slotted spoon, drain water, and set atop avocado. 

  • Season with salt and pepper and serve
