I posted the above Egg, Avocado and Spinach breakfast photo on Instagram, and it got lots of attention!
Maybe it is all of the beautiful colors in this ‘easy-but-looks-fancy’ dish. They really are quite beautiful; the dark green of the wilted spinach against the shiny cooked egg white and sunny yellow of the egg.
A sprinkling of seeds in all the neutral colors doesn’t hurt, either. Such a pretty dish! All those colors represent different textures, which make this dish very satisfying!
I’d so love for you all to know her, as she is the type of person the whole world should know, but for now I will just say that I flew to Houston to love and serve, but ended up being the one loved on and served!
These awesome Avocado Pomegranate Egg Muffins are the perfect example of that love. Ali and I woke up early to drive into the city for her chemo treatment, and when I walked into the kitchen a beautiful plate of breakfast was waiting for me. I was floored.
She is the one getting cancer treatment yet gets up and makes breakfast for ME! My heart!
The amazing dish consists of a toasted english muffin, topped with avocado and a perfectly cooked egg. She somehow knew I didn’t like my egg yolk too runny or overcooked, and the cook was spot on, just right for me. The special touch was pomegranate seeds sprinkled on top. I could not believe how beautiful it was, and was eager to see how the flavors would taste together.
It was amazing. The toasted , chewy english muffin is perfect topped with creamy avocado. The egg added another layer of texture, a heartiness of protein and a touch of salt. The pomegranate seeds added a sweet crunch and balanced the salty, savoriness of the egg. It was perfection.
This breakfast will keep you full and is super nutritious. It has fiber, protein, healthy fats & antioxidants. To make this gluten-free, just buy gluten free english muffin. If gluten is not an issue for you, my favorite brand of english muffins are organic and sprouted Ezekiel brand english muffins.
Not only did it taste like perfection, but it looks amazing, too.
How great would this be for a Christmas brunch? The color is amazing.
Make it. Make it for yourself and a loved one. They will feel special & will be floored with the beauty and deliciousness of this dish!
Free your pomegranate seeds (how-to video here), cook your egg, and have sliced avocado ready to go. Toast the english muffin, top with avocado sliced, top with seasoned egg that is sliced in half, and sprinkle pomegranate seeds over all. Enjoy!
Many of you may know this fun little trick, but it is one that makes me so happy I thought I would share it anyway!
I was at a deli about 10 yrs ago, taking a lunch break in the middle of a very long day of hair styling. I ordered an egg salad sandwich, and was told I would have to wait a minute for her to mix up a new batch. I stood and watched her whip out an egg slicer and chop up a dozen eggs using this method, in no time. I had used one of these egg slicers to slice an egg, but had never thought about turning the egg sideways to slice a second time-it makes perfect little matchstick like egg pieces. These are great for egg salad and any recipe that calls for chopped egg or just simply to top a salad.
The Ecko brand egg slicer I have pictured above is quite flimsy and the wires break easily, I would not recommend it.
This one from Amazon got great reviews. It is a bit pricier, but after having 3 break on me, I am ready for a quality egg slicer. This can be used to slice strawberries & mushrooms, and areviewer said she has even used it to slice a chunk of mozzarella cheese.
