Start your day off with this Breakfast Smashed Avocado Tomato Toast with Fried Poached Egg – it will keep your tummy full all morning long.
A few weeks ago, we hosted my husband’s cousin and niece from Taiwan during their stay in the U.S. and I had the pleasure of introducing them to all sorts of new foods. Every meal was like an adventure, from granola with yogurt to barbecue chicken – foods that are so common to us, yet so foreign to them.
One morning, I made this Breakfast Smashed Avocado Tomato Toast with a Fried Poached Egg on top, inspired by something similar that I ordered from a local restaurant a while back.
In Taiwan, avocado is often served as a sweet drink, a smoothie of sorts from what our relatives told us. So, this savory breakfast with avocado was new and different. I simply smashed some avocado with a little lemon juice and sea salt, spread it on toast, topped it with a lightly fried egg, and then added a few slices of tomatoes on top. I had a batch of Sous Vide Poached Eggs in the refrigerator and lightly fried them just to firm them up a bit, but you can just fry up some eggs or use poached eggs.
Our guests really enjoyed this and I loved introducing them to this new way of enjoying avocado.
