My favourite tradition: avocados and eggs for breakfast

My guy lives a couple of hours away on the south coast so we can only see each other at weekends. That time is really precious to us so we try to make the most of it and get lots done, see lots of people and eat good food.

One of our favourite things about weekends is breakfast. We didn't set out to make it a tradition but almost every weekend we're together we eat the same thing; toasted seeded loaf topped with mashed avocados, sprinkled with lemon juice and sea salt flakes with scrambled or poached eggs on the side. My guy likes a healthy dollop of sweet chili sauce with his too.

I don't appear to have any photos of this wonderful breakfast. Evidently it is scoffed before the thought would even occur to me. Fortunately I have a wonderful local fruit and veg manny where I can buy 5 or 6 avocados for £1. This is one of the easiest and tastiest breakfasts ever and much healthier than a fry up - give it a go sometime!

Do you have any breakfast traditions?

  1. That sounds delicious. I don't think I've ever had avocado with egg before either. Will try it out soon.
    Also, 6 avocados for a quid?!!

  2. Egg and avocado is so tasty - I am a massive poached egg fan. Add in a little smoked salmon and a toasted bagel and it's perfect ;)

  3. That does sound rather yummy.:-D
