My boys like to load them up with all kinds of things, or to replicate the Sausage & Egg McMuffin! ⠀ You can use :-⠀ Parma Ham⠀ Ham⠀ Bacon⠀ Smoked/cured salmon ⠀ Poached/Fried/Scrambled Eggs⠀ Spinach ⠀ Avocado ⠀ Pea guacamole ⠀ Tomatoes....... the list goes on!⠀ INGREDIENTS⠀ Recipe per person ⠀⠀ 1/2 avocado sliced⠀⠀ 2 eggs⠀⠀ 1 English muffin halved and toasted ⠀⠀ 6 cherry tomatoes on the vine⠀⠀ Handful torn basil leaves⠀⠀ Olive oil⠀


⠀⠀ Drizzle the tomatoes with olive oil & balsamic vinegar and season with salt & Pepper. Roast at 200 degrees for 10 minutes.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Bring a medium - large pan, with ⠀⠀ 3-4 inches of water to slow gentle simmer. Crack an egg into a small cup then into the simmering water with a quick movement. Leave for 3 minutes, then carefully remove using a slotted spoon. Carefully drained on kitchen towel.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Tips:-⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Use the freshest eggs you can.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ 2 minutes 40 seconds for small eggs.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ 3 minutes for medium - large eggs.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Bring the water to the boil then turn down to a gentle simmer.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Don’t over crowd the pan, it’s better to make them in batches.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Place the avocado on the toasted muffin, top with a poached egg, season and scatter with basil leaves. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀
