Not too long ago I came across some poached eggs on toast with chipotle mayonnaise, bacon and avocado on Cookin Canuck which was great because it reminded me that it had been far too long since I had last made these tasty little breakfast sandwiches. Normally I would serve these sandwiches in English muffins but they are particularly messy with the egg yolk and avocado spilling out all over so I really liked the idea of serving them open-faced so that you could eat them with a knife and a fork! This really is a magical combination of flavours with the salty bacon, the spicy hot chipotle mayo, the cool and creamy avocado and you of course cannot go wrong topping it all off with a runny egg yolk! This truly is a breakfast to look forward to waking up to!
One of the things that I like about these sandwiches is that there are a lot of variations that you can do and I spent all of last week playing around with them. Although the poached eggs are definitely healthier, when you have some bacon grease on hand anyways, frying the eggs in a bit of the bacon grease adds a ton of flavour! In another variation of the sandwich, I like to replace the bacon with cheese that I sprinkle onto the egg while it fries and then I add a bit more to the sandwich as well. When I serve these sandwiches in English muffins I sometime like to mash the avocado and mix in some creamy mayonnaise which is an awesome combination that works well, though it makes the sandwich slightly messier. There are so many ways to enjoy these delectable breakfast sandwiches!
