Forget A Fry Up This Morning, Try Out These Amazing Eggs

Ingredients
  • 3 Eggs
  • Brown Bread
  • 1 Avocado
  • 1 Lemon
  • Cherry Tomatoes

When it comes to breakfast at the weekends we all usually go for fatty meats and huge portions; either a treat, or to help cure us from the night before.

With this recipe I wanted to make something wholesome that tastes awesome but made you feel healthy. This only has 5 ingredients so it's incredibly easy to put together and it tastes absolutely gorgeous...

Instructions

Step 1

5 Simple ingredients and not a piece of meat in sight. The key here is making sure the avocado is perfectly ripe, don't pick the cheap hard ones the supermarkets try to flog you.

Step 2

Chop the tips off the avocado so that it balances on the chopping board.

Step 3

Run your knife around the outside removing the skin and as little of the flesh as possible.

Step 4

The avocado should be as ripe as possible, that will make it super easy to peel.

Step 8

Use the largest pan you have, (non-stick if possible!). Lash on a good bit of oil on a medium heat.

Step 9

Chuck in the tomatoes with the vine still on - it has loads of flavour, and keeps them all together for nicer presentation.

Step 10

Slice up the bread - it's up to you if you want to toast it or not. (I did!)

Step 15

Using the same pan on a medium heat lash in the eggs

Step 16

You'll want to start stirring them immediately. Eggs don't take long to cook, about a minute max.

Step 17

Take them off the heat just before they are fully cooked - there's nothing worse than overcooked scrambled eggs.

Step 18

Plate it up with the tomatoes and the bread on the plate first.

Step 19

Lash the eggs on top and them a big scoop of the avocado. It looks as pretty as a picture!

So there you have it! Who thought a veggie breakfast could look and taste this good?

I'm not saying that you never have to have a dirty big fry up ever again, but it makes a nice change every now and then. The fact that you can lash it together in a couple of minutes makes it a huge winner for the weekends.
