First Watch is so close, yet so far away. I didn't know what to do now that I can't recharge with friends at Sunday brunch after Saturday Night Shenanigans. Remember the days we willfully spent big bucks on glorified breakfast? I do. And. I. Miss. Them. So I decided to do it my damn self. And what's every millennial's favorite way to ruin the economy? Avocado toast. Try this ridiculously easy recipe next Sunday (or anytime you feel like brunch, because, who are we kidding? This is a daily affair).

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 Hass Avocado

  • 1 Egg

  • 1 large slice of bread

  • Half a medium lemon

  • Crumbly cheese like feta

  • Salt

  • Pepper

  • Garlic Powder

  • Minced Onion

  • Paprika

  • Olive Oil

  • White Wine Vinegar



INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Toast your bread.

  2. Slice avocado vertically, remove pit, score avocado in checkerboard pattern.

  3. Scoop out avocado into a bowl, add lemon juice, salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste. Smash with a smashy object like a fork.

  4. Boil water in a deep pot, add a few tablespoons of white whine vinegar. Reduce heat to low. Crack an egg into a small bowl.

  5. Create a vortex using a spoon or whisk. Pour egg into center of the vortex. If you're lucky, which I wasn't, this will make the whites wrap around the egg and create a little pouch of yolky goodness. Cook for about 3 minutes until whites are set. Remove with a strainer.

  6. Spread avocado mixture on toast. Crumble some feta on top, sprinkle with minced onion and paprika, and drizzle with the last of the lemon juice and a little olive oil. (We love acidity!)

  7. Drop your poached egg into the center and season with salt and pepper.



Serve with some OJ or coffee. But choose a mimosa if you really want hit that "I'm totally fine spending $15 on a piece of toast" factor.
