Poached Egg on Toast with Chipotle Mayonnaise, Bacon and Avocado

Poached Egg on Toast with Chipotle Mayonnaise, Bacon and Avocado

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!

Mmm...that looks fantastic! I just picked up some grass-fed bacon, and now I know I am going to do with a bit of it!! Thank you for sharing! I love your blog!

Rachel said...

Your photos make me hungry! I have a similar fondness for avocado and egg on toast, though mine is a veg version: http://tamingthetart.wordpress.com/2011/03/16/avocado-egg-toast. :)

Hi Kevin! Followed a link from Pinterest for this photo, gorgeous and I can't wait to try it! Have a great week.

Kevin, I'm so glad you enjoyed this recipe and like your twist on it. What a great idea to sprinkle the cheese on top as the eggs fry.

Love this!!!

Jamie said...

Kevin, what a fabulous dish! The Chipotle mayo sounds extraordinary and strangely enough someone gave me a gift of a can of chipotle chili in adobo sauce and I didn't know what to do with it! This is calling my name! Poaching eggs in bacon grease is delicious but sadly I stay away from that. But what a dish! And really beautiful photos!

Joanne said...

Imagining the runny yolk with all of those other flavors is giving me chills!

Eggs with a little spice makes everything nice--yum!

Microwaving an egg is faster (40 seconds) than poaching and doesn't heat up the kitchen. Check out http://www.nutritiouseats.com/
for directions. It makes a perfect size for sandwich or english muffin.

I wish I could eat this every damn day. Amazing!

I have just run across you on Pinterest and I'm thinking it's time to come to your place for a visit! Darlin, you should open a bed and breakfast! People would pay to sleep over just for the breakfast! I've already pinned three of your sandwiches and can't wait to make them! Wow you rock!

Aurora said...

This is one of the best sandwiches I have ever eaten. I used one avocado for two sandwiches, 1 TB of mayo but kept the chipotle amounts ( even added more chipotle, as well as more lime), fried the egg and added tomato slices. Oh and used 2 strips of turkey bacon per sandwich. So perfect.

Chef Jeff said...

Kevin, This dish looks amazing. I love your story as I also got tired of cooking the same things over again. My wife calls me a Food Snob; I prefer Divine Foodie. I am always searching out restaurants and great recipes. So much food can be dry and tasteless.

I love writing about my adventures, www.hometownslop.blogspot.com

I think I must poach eggs differently.
I saw the picture and started questioning my idea of poached eggs.

Drool is not the word.
I have to travel to buy bacon. Only. Kosher near me and I can't get Chipotle. I don't even know what it is :'(
All I can get is tabasco or Thai hot sauce.

Kevin Lynch said...

Judy Goldin: Tabasco or Thai hot sauce would also be great!
