This Simple Poached Egg and Avocado Toast recipe is the most perfectly delicious healthy breakfast. Breakfast of champions! It's made with an avocado spread made with cayenne pepper, chives and topped with a perfectly poached egg.

A breakfast of champions doesn’t have to consist of eggs, hash browns, bacon and french toast everyday.  It just has to be tasty and filling. But this simple poached egg and avocado toast is more than that.  As the title says, it's simple! And it’s not just simple to make but also fits the rest of the criteria.  It’s absolutely yummy and definitely filling!  One other thing, it’s perfect anytime!  So whether you make this egg and avocado toast for breakfast, snack, lunch or even for dinner, I promise you will not be disappointed.

Keep in mind sometimes the simplest meals are created within fifteen minutes or less.  Who says you have to spend one, two or three hours in a kitchen for a fabulous meal?!

And I don’t know about you, but if you’re anything like me, breakfast is a must in my household.  I just simply cannot get going without breakfast. And eggs and avocado breakfast with coffee made under 15 minutes is just perfect for me. This simple poached egg and avocado toast is it!  Hands down!

For the avocado spread, I added a hint of cayenne pepper and chives.  Let me tell you this combination is just perfeccct!  So if you have chives growing in your garden like I do, this is a perfect way to use them!  The chives just add so much flavor to the avocado spread and work so well with a poached drippy egg.  So DO NOT forget the chives!

And if you don’t like spicy avocado that’s okay, just exclude the cayenne pepper, you will not offend me.  The chives however is another story!

So yes one last rant about the chives, if you are not growing chives in your garden, make sure to buy some.  Try it, you will not regret it!

  1. In a bowl, mash the avocado with a fork and add the chives, cayenne pepper, salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
  2. Toast the bread to your liking.
  3. Divide the avocado spread among the slices.
  4. Poach eggs to your liking using your favorite method.
  5. I normally use a small 6 inch pan and add about 1/2 cup of water and bring it to a boil. Then gently drop eggs and, using a spatula, I spread water on top of both eggs until the yolk has a white film on top, and then continue with a little more water on top with spatula for another 20 seconds or so.
  6. Place poached eggs on top of avocado toast and sprinkle more chopped chives, cayenne pepper, salt and pepper.
