Avocado toasts

We think this is the best-ever avocado toast – perfect for lazy Sunday mornings. If the sun is shining, enjoy al fresco. 

  • Preparation time: 15 minutes
  • Cooking time: 5 minutes
  • Total time: 20 minutes

Serves: 2


1 Waitrose 1 Perfectly Ripe Avocado
Juice of ½ lime
1 salad onion, finely chopped
Large pinch of chilli flakes
1 tsp white wine vinegar
2 medium Waitrose British Blacktail Free Range Eggs
2 slices Waitrose 1 White Sourdough Bread, toasted 


1. Coarsely mash the avocado with a fork. Mix in the lime juice, salad onion and chilli flakes. Cover and set aside.

2. Bring a large pan of water to the boil over a high heat and add the vinegar. Crack each egg into a small bowl, then carefully slide into the water. Simmer very gently for 3-4 minutes before removing with a slotted spoon.

3. Meanwhile, spread the mashed avocado over the toast and top each slice with a poached egg. Grind over a little black pepper and serve straight away.

Cook’s tipTry adding chopped herbs such as coriander or mint to the avocado mix for an extra burst of flavour.
