Egg + Avocado Flatbread

Lately I have been involved in a fairly serious love affair with eggs. Poached, scrambled, hard-boiled, soft-boiled with dippy soldiers, baked, and fried. What’s so wonderful about these perfectly packaged little nutrient-bombs is that they manage to be both filling and exactly what you’d want for a quick, simple, satisfying meal – breakfast, lunch or dinner.

I’d like to share with you a take on eggs on toast that is brighter, prettier and more interesting than old-hat white bread and fried eggs.

My Sunny Side Egg and Avocado Breakfast Pizza stars a perfectly golden-bottomed fried egg, lime-spiked avocado, snow peas shoots and pink peppercorns. A seedy, wholemeal flatbread serves as the vehicle that allows easy eating and very little washing up. Good morning!

Recipe Type: Main Course
Serves: 1
Ingredients
  • 1 wholemeal flatbread – I used a beautiful house-made soy, linseed and pumpkin flatbread from my favourite market stall, but any wholemeal flatbread is fine
  • Juice of one freshly squeezed lime
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1 organic free-range egg
  • Sea salt
  • Pink peppercorns
  • Snow pea shoots
  • Extra virgin olive oil
Instructions
  1. Preheat grill to 390F (200C)
  2. Brush flatbread with a little olive oil, season with salt and pop under the grill to crisp up. Remove from oven.
  3. Scoop out the flesh of the avocado and spread onto the flatbread – I used a fork to mash the avocado roughly as I like a few bigger chunks of avocado here and there.
  4. In a frypan heat a little olive oil over medium heat. Crack the egg into the pan and cook to your liking.
  5. Using a spatula, place the cooked egg on top of the avocado flatbread. Squeeze over the juice of a fresh lime, season with salt, sprinkle over some pink peppercorns and finish with a pile of crisp snow pea shoots.
  6. For something a little more filling try adding some slices of smoked salmon, a crumbling of feta or some slow-roasted cherry tomatoes.
