Weight Loss Wednesday #3: Toasty Toppings

I quite like Sourdough Toast, jk I love it! I’ve been experimenting with a few toppings and I’ve come up with my 3 favourites. Ever since I had the best avocado on toast with prosciutto in New York, I’ve been a bit obsessed with it ever since.

I made this Avocado on Sourdough Toast with Chilli Scrambled Egg and Bacon, just yum! If you don’t like avocado, take it away so you have scrambled egg and bacon! If you don’t like sourdough bread, swap it out for some ciabatta instead.

A couple of strips of Bacon per person
3 Large Eggs
100g Rachel’s Organic Greek Style Low Fat Yogurt*
Salt and Pepper
1 Red Chilli, chopped
10g Salted Butter
1 Large Ripe Avocado, peeled and sliced
Dark Sourdough Loaf, sliced

This recipe serves 2 so you may find some of the quantities are a bit much. It only takes 20 minutes to whip up and makes the perfect brunch.

  1. Begin by cooking the bacon in a frying pan or under the grill - cook to your liking!
  2. Crack the eggs into a measuring jug and add the yogurt.
  3. Add a pinch of salt and pepper, then use a fork to beat them together. Add the chopped chilli.
  4. Put a medium sized saucepan over a low heat and add the butter.
  5. Leave it to melt slowly, then when it starts to bubble, carefully pour in the eggs.
  6. Stir slowly with a wooden spoon, or a spatula if you’ve got one, so you can get right to the edges of the pan.
  7. Keep gently stirring until the eggs still look silky, slightly running and slightly underdone, and then remove from the heat - the heat of the pan will continue to cook the eggs to perfection.
  8. Layer the scrambled egg with avocado slices and cooked bacon on toasted slices of sourdough bread, serving immediately.

There is 558 calories per serving, hence why it makes the perfect brunch.

Two other toppings I have been trying are feta and fig and mozzarella and tomato.

I made the feta and fig by slicing up a fig and layering them flat on the toast and then crumble some feta cheese on top. It’s so delicious and the sweetness of the fig complements the feta cheese.

A classic combination of mozzarella and tomato goes well on top of the toast - simply slice each of the mozzarella and tomato and layer on top of the toast.

What do you think I should try next?
