A Lovely Lunch

This past Sunday Pat took Lucy with him up to his parents for the day so she could visit and he could hunt.  Yes, I had the whole house to myself for the whole day.  And yes, it was lovely!  I cooked, I baked, I cleaned, I had some coffee, I caught up on my shows, I read, and I listened to music.  And in the midst of the day I made myself the most perfect little lunch.  It was one of those simple little lunches that I would never make if everyone was home, but it was just right for me.  I had the most scrumptious avocado toast with smoked salmon and poached eggs on sourdough bread.  It was delightful.  Well....ok, so the first one was delightful.  The second one felt less delightful and more like I was gorging myself, which I was.  But who was a day just for me and I loved every second of it :)

Avocado Toast with Smoked Salmon and Poached Eggs
Inspiration: Pinterest


1 (or 2) slices of sourdough bread
Pat of butter (I use Earth Balance)
Garlic Salt
1 Avocado
Small package of smoked salmon, flaked
2 eggs
Salt and pepper


This recipe is really a non-recipe.  There is no specific technique.  I toasted my bread and then slathered a tiny pat of butter onto it and sprinkled with some garlic salt.  I smashed up my avocado and layered that onto the toast.  Then I flaked off a bit of smoked salmon and added that to the top.  For egg poaching, try whatever technique works best for you.  Deb at Smitten Kitchen has a very good tutorial I have used before that can be found here. Once your eggs are poached rest gently atop your toast and sprinkle with just a bit of salt and pepper.  Enjoy!
