Green eggy breakfast on rye

Green eggy breakfast on rye
  • Serves: 1
  • Prep: 5mins
  • Cook: 5mins


  • 1 British Lion egg
  • 1 small ripe avocado
  • 1 ripe tomato
  • Pinch of chilli flakes
  • Handful of baby spinach leaves, washed
  • Slice of German rye bread


  1. Heat a small saucepan and chuck in the spinach. Don’t add any water – there will be enough on the spinach. Stir for 30 seconds to one minute until the spinach has wilted and lightly cooked. Drain the spinach whilst you quickly get the other bits done.
  2. Fill a frying pan with 5cm depth of water, add a pinch of salt and bring to the boil. Crack the egg into a saucer and tip it gently into the water. Reduce the heat so the water is just simmering and poach for 3 minutes for a runny yolk.
  3. Meanwhile, toast the bread. Slice the tomato and lay it on the toast. Spoon the warm wilted spinach on top of the tomato.
  4. Peel the avocado and cut into generous chunks then sprinkle over a pinch of chilli flakes. Place the avocado on top of the spinach and top with a hot poached egg.

#eggsmyway #eggs #brunchThe best place to store your eggs is in the fridge. Eggs should be kept at a constant temperature below 20°C, so to avoid temperature fluctuations in a domestic kitchen store them in their box in the fridge. But they are not kept in the fridge in the supermarket we hear you cry! Most modern supermarkets are kept below 20°C so refrigeration isn’t necessary. Keeping your eggs in the fridge at home ensures optimum freshness and food safety which is eggcellent news for any #egghead #tofridgeornottofridge #eggmyths #facts #egghacks #britishlioneggs #factfriday
