Poached Eggs, Salmon & Guacamole Bagel

Making poached eggs is suuuuupeeeeerr hard! For those of you who are thinking “hell yeah they are” I feel your pain. For ages, the poached egg was this mystical creature that I just couldn’t conquer, and then I realised that all I needed to do is approach the poaching process differently and ding, the penny dropped. You see, for the life of me I just could not get the right whirlpool or the right timing which resulted in a load of funny looking, not even close- poached eggs. So, I have discovered the technique below which makes some really awesome looking and awesome tasting poached eggs that you can eat on their own or with bagels and homemade guacamole. Here’s the recipe…enjoy!

Ingredients for 2:

Smoked salmon
1 ripe avocado
2 tomatoes
½ juiced lime
4 free range eggs
Cream cheese
1 sesame seeds bagel
¼ finely chopped red onion

How to:

De-stone the avocado and scoop the inside into a bowl. Then, with a fork or a potato masher squash the avocado until it resembles a paste. Add the lime juice, the chopped tomatoes (make sure to remove the seeds beforehand), the finely chopped onion and mix.

Next step is to poach the eggs. I don’t know about you but I have always found this very challenging.  So instead of failing yet another time trying to get the right speed in the whirlpool I have used a different and slightly more creative method that works for me every time.

Now cut your bagel in half, toast it and lather cream cheese on top. Add a layer of smoked salmon, a healthy helping of the homemade guacamole and place your poached eggs on top. Season with salt and enjoy!
