Sesame Toasts with Eggs and Avocado

poached -

Recently I was lucky enough to have my good friend Rachel visit for an overnight.  We both love good food, but more than that we love good, healthy food.  So I look forward to what meals we can prepare while we are catching up.  For breakfast I selected an open-faced sandwich that I had just ran across in the February issue of my Martha Stewart Magazine.

I did make the eggs poached the first time, but when I made them this morning I decided to fry my egg because I was running late.  Not late enough to keep me from snapping some photos to share with our readers though!

bread -

Ingredients (makes 3):

1 avocado

1 tsp. fresh lemon juice

3 slices sesame bread, lightly toasted

1 C lightly packed watercress sprigs

Extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling

3 large eggs


Take half of the avacado; add lemon juice, ½ tsp salt, and ¼ tsp pepper.  Mash with a fork until combined, with some small chunks remaining.  Divide among toast slices, spread evenly.  Top the avocado with watercress and drizzle with olive oil.

Spicy Variations:  If you are into it, this recipe could work well with some spice.  You might consider a sprinkling of your favorite hot sauce on top, or mix in salsa with the avocado, or layer a couple fresh jalapenos on the greens.

Top the toasts with either poached or fried eggs and enjoy!

    Oh, pouching is really more simple than it seems. Maybe I’ll have to write a blog post about that for you! 🙂
