Avocado Toast With Poached Egg

Avocado Toast With Poached Egg

Calling all avocado on toast lovers! We think you can make your avocado toast recipe with egg even better with the help of Gran Luchito.

Here are a few simple tricks to keep in mind when achieving the best avocado toast with poached egg:

  1. Sourdough bread: there’s nothing like a slice of sourdough bread toasted, to make your avocado toast taste like a million bucks.
  2. Get your avocado right: make sure to pick ripe avocados for this Mexican brunch recipe. A quick tip is to remove what looks like the belly button of the avocado where it used to be the stem, and if it looks green it’s very likely that you’ll have a very nice green avocado inside.
  3. Fresh eggs: fresh free range eggs guarantee the best results when poaching.
  4. Don’t forget condiments: mayo and a bit of salsa work best, especially if it’s Gran Luchito Chipotle Mayo. Then add a bit of Gran Luchito Crunchy Salsa Macha on top for that perfect finishing touch to your avocado breakfast toast.

How to make it

  1. First thing is to prepare a quick guacamole. For this, cut your avocados in half, get rid of the seed and spoon out the flesh into a bowl. Mash your avocado roughly with a fork, then add the onion, Tomatillo Salsa (if using), lime juice, extra virgin olive oil and coriander. Season with a pinch of salt, freshly ground black pepper, and mix with a spoon. Once ready set aside.
  2. Now it’s time to poach your eggs. Bring a saucepan with ¾ full of water to just below simmering. Add the vinegar and use a wooden spoon to stir the water gently in the middle for a few seconds, creating a little whirlpool. 
  3. Carefully break an egg into a fine mesh sieve with a bowl underneath (to catch any residue) and then transfer the egg to a cup. Trust us this step is important to achieve the nicest poached eggs as it will get rid of the liquid part of the egg white and turn out better once poached!
  4. Now pour the egg from the cup into the circulating water, it should spin the egg into a nice spherical shape without dispersing too much, let it cook for 3 minutes (approx). There is no need to move it while it’s cooking. Once the white is firm you can remove your egg from the water with a slotted spoon and place over kitchen paper. Repeat the same with the rest of your eggs.
  5. Cut 4 slices of sourdough bread and toast them. Then add a generous amount of Chipotle Mayo onto each and spread it over the surface evenly.
  6. To serve, place your chipotle mayo toasts over plates, then add a dollop of guacamole and the poached egg on top. Finish by sprinkling some Crunchy Salsa Macha on top. Enjoy!

I have made this recipe at least once a week for a few years now. Having a generous spread of the Gran Luchito Chipotle mayonnaise on a lovely thick piece of bread takes the classic Avocado and Poached Eggs to a heavenly taste sensation in your mouth. The mayonnaise is a perfect balance of flavour that i have been unable to find in another product on the market. I also use the Gran Luchito Smokey Paste mixed with mayonnaise when i run out of the Chipotle Mayo as i tend to use a lot due to this being the best… Read more »

Hi Craig, that’s a great idea to mix the Chipotle Paste with regular mayonnaise when you run out of the Chipotle Mayo! Also mixing it with crab meat – excellent. So glad you are enjoying our products. Keep us posted on your thoughts and ideas!

I have made this recipe so many times now. I adore the lovely subtle heat of the luchito mayo against the smooth coolness of the avocado. The runnyness and heat of the egg just catapults this dish to another stratosphere.
