Watch this video on how to make a Poached Egg & Avocado Breakfast Salad!
I know that many thoughts might be flooding your mind right at this moment. Especially for my Granola Breakfast Bowl loving friends! Maybe your thoughts are saying, “Is a salad for breakfast even human?“. (No offense, salad loving friends! 😘)
For those of you who prefer savory breakfasts over sweet breakfasts, this is right up your alley. But for those of us who pretty much eat Oatmeal Cookies and French Toast for breakfast….um yeah, we’re freakin’ out.
This Poached Egg & Avocado Breakfast Salad is vegetarian, gluten free, and easy to make!
No worries, friends! None whatsoever. This Poached Egg & Avocado Breakfast Salad is deliciously EPIC and filled with a crunchy, yet creamy texture. Not to mention the delicious, creamy, savory poached egg to top it all off. So. Much. Yum! Which leads us to our next potential freak out thought:
“I don’t know how to poach an egg!!!!!!”
Girl, tell me about it. For this dilemma that we are both equals in (unless you’re an egg poaching PRO, in which case you should most definitely share your extraordinary ways with us), I have four words: Stainless Steel Egg Poacher. It has saved my life. I LOVE this tool!
Oh, and as you can see in my photos, my egg was a little less oozy than desirable because I was being all loose and wild over here and let it cook for too long instead of following the directions on the egg poacher package 🙄. I tend to not be a direction follower. Lesson learned. (But probably not)…
ANYWAY, you can also try a fried egg or boiled egg for this salad if poaching eggs isn’t your thing 😉 The options are limitless, my friend!
Make this Poached Egg & Avocado Breakfast Salad for a well balanced and healthy breakfast!
How have I still not talked about the health benefits in this post? Ok guys, we have protein + healthy fats + veggies galore + healthy carbs. SUCH a great way to start off the day! This isn’t to say that I’m kissing my Smoothie Bowls good bye, but I’m excited to have this new savory Poached Egg & Avocado Breakfast Salad in the mix.
