Paleo Smashed Avocado Toast

Paleo Smashed Avocado Toast

Avocado Toast is a staple on most brunch menus these days.  And with good reason, it’s freaking delicious!  However, when you stick mostly to a Paleo lifestyle, toast is usually off limits…that is until I discovered Julian’s Bakery (linked below). 

Their Paleo, gluten free and grain free breads are great!  A real savior to my otherwise bread-free existence.  Maybe a bit dramatic but I love bread and I love avocado so this was a rare Paleo treat!

This is great as a snack, breakfast, or lunch or dinner, topped with my recipe for the perfect poached egg. Enjoy!

 

Paleo Smashed Avocado Toast

 

1 Slice Paleo Bread

½ Avocado

1 pinch Red Pepper Flakes

Salt and Pepper to taste

½ tsp Truffle Oil *optional

 

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
  2. In a bowl, smash the avocado with a fork
  3. Once the bread is toasted top the toast with smashed avocado, red pepper flakes, salt, pepper and truffle oil

* For a complete meal, top with a poached egg

The Perfect Poached Egg

The poached egg has given us the gift of yolk porn.  When the silky yolk runs all over your food and instantly makes it taste better and more decadent…yolk porn.

Poached eggs are surprisingly simple to make, but people are too intimidated to try.  Fear not, with this full-proof recipe for poached eggs, you too can be the creator of yolk porn!  Isn’t that just egg-cellent?!

 

The Perfect Poached Egg

 

1 Egg

1 tsp White Vinegar

 

  1. Bring a pot of water to boil
  2. Add in a tsp of vinegar
  3. Once the water is bowling, using a spoon, begin to swirl the water.  Continue swirling until a whirlpool forms in the middle (like a mini tornado)
  4. Gently crack the egg and carefully drop into the swirling water.  The swirling water will help collect the egg white
  5. Cook for 2-3 minutes and remove with a slotted spoon
