Eggs and Toast Soldiers



  • 4 eggs
  • 1 avocado, cut in slices (when in season)
  • 2 tomatoes, cut in wedges
  • ½ tsp (2,5 ml) salt
  • Lemon juice and black pepper to taste
  • 4 slices wholewheat or brown bread, toasted


Place eggs with 1 cup (250 ml) water in a small saucepan and bring to a gentle simmer over a medium heat. Cover with a lid and simmer for 5-8 minutes, depending on how hard or soft you prefer the yolk to be. Cook for 5-7 minutes for soft yolks and 8-10 minutes for firm yolks.

Place eggs in egg cups and serve with slices of avocado and tomato. Lightly season avocado, tomato and egg with the salt and pepper. Add a squeeze of lemon juice to the avocado, if preferred.

Cut toast into thick strips to dunk into the egg or to spread with avocado.
