“These take poached eggs to a new level :) Use thick slices of a wholegrain bread or use whatever you have on hand or prefer. Makes a nice meal for brunch, lunch or even an easy dinner :) The cooking time is for bringing the water to a simmer and poaching the eggs. If you are short of time or don't have lemon or lime juice just mash half an avocado straight onto each slice of toast, sprinkle with salt & pepper and follow rest of recipe.”
