The Ultimate Bacon, Avocado & Poached Egg Sandwiches

Hands up if you enjoy brunch as much as I do! The bare minimum for a great brunch in our house is strong coffee, bread, bacon and eggs. Throw in some avocado and I am in heaven.

The Ultimate Bacon, Avocado & Poached Egg Sandwiches

Turning these simple yet tasty ingredients into the best open sandwiches ever does not require too much work and the key here is to get it right with your poached eggs. I have given you the method I have used for years in the recipe, but I recently spotted a great video by Jamie Oliver bout poached eggs. It is worth a watch!

Check out Jamie Oliver’s tips for perfect poached eggs:

Jumpy is allergic to eggs and wheat so our sandwiches are out of the question for her, but she has something similar: mashed avocado and bacon on toasted Schär Ciabatta.

The Ultimate 'Free From' Sandwich

Serves 1
4 unsmoked streaky bacon rashers
Vegetable oil
Two medium free range eggs (the fresher the better)
Two thick slices of bread
1 ripe avocado
Freshly ground pepper


Place the streaky bacon rashers on a lightly greased (a teaspoon vegetable oil, spread evenly with kitchen towel) griddle pan, chargriller or baking sheet for a couple of minutes, then turn around and cook on the other side.

Turn off the oven. Slice the bread and boil the kettle. Toast the bread if you wish.

Using an oven glove to avoid burns, remove the pan or baking sheet from the oven. Place 4 layers of kitchen towel on a plate, then the bacon, and another 4 layers of kitchen towel. It will keep the bacon warm and absorb excess grease.

Place a large saucepan of boiling water over a high heat. Add in a pinch of salt.
Immerse both eggs together (in their shells) for 30 seconds.

Remove the eggs using a ladle and crack them into separate cups.

Using a wooden spoon, create a circular movement in your pan and gently drop one of the eggs into the water. Keep the water turning to make sure the white does not detach itself from the yolk. Cook for two to three minutes in simmering water and remove from the pan using a fish slice. Place on kitchen paper for a minute until ready to serve..

Top the bread with the mashed avocado, bacon, egg and some freshly ground black pepper. Enjoy!
