  • 2 very fresh eggs
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar any kind works
  • 2 pieces bread
  • 1 avocado
  • a handful of greens spinach/chard/arugula etc
  • salt and pepper
  • a drizzle of balsamic reduction


  • Bring a medium non-stick saucepan full of water (about 2 1/2-3 inches deep) and 2 tablespoons of vinegar to a full boil under a lid.
  • Break eggs carefully into individual ramekins.
  • Remove from heat and immediately add eggs gently. To add the eggs, tip the corner of the ramekin into the hot water and allow the water to pool into the ramekin. Jiggle the cup slightly to let the hot water get around the egg. This will start to set the egg, then pour out into the pan. Replace lid.
  • Set timer for 3-4 minutes for runny eggs, 4-5 minutes for medium. Do not lift lid!
  • While they are poaching, toast the bread.
  • Smash avocado and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Using a slotted spoon remove poached eggs to a paper towel to drain momentarily. If they are a little underdone to your liking leave in water for another minute or two.
    (Your locations altitude can affect this timing a bit as the water boils at a lower temperature the higher your elevation. The higher your elevation the cooler your water is and thus the longer it will take for them to be finished cooking.)
  • Top toast with avocado, a handful of greens, poached egg and a pinch more of salt and pepper. Add a drizzle of balsamic reduction if desired.
