Sunny Side Egg + Avocado Breakfast Pizza

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 + 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!

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

Preheat grill to 200C

Brush flatbread with a little olive oil, season with salt and pop under the grill to crisp up. Remove from oven.

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.

In a frypan heat a little olive oil over medium heat. Crack the egg into the pan and cook to your liking.

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.

For something a little more filling try adding some slices of smoked salmon, a crumbling of feta or some slow-roasted cherry tomatoes.

  1. YUM. Anything with avocado in it is great in my book, anything with egg in (or, on) it is great in my book. Anything with BOTH avocado and an egg is amazing no matter what else it involves and a winner. Love the salmon idea too, bacon would be another awesome option but would negate the healthy aspect of this dish. Now you’ve got my thinking about breakfast tomorrow morning!

  2. Love both avocado and eggs – what a great idea. It really does look and sound like something you could have for either breakfast, lunch or dinner. And it’s a photogenic dish, too :-).
