Spring Open-Faced Breakfast SandwichRecipe Blog Post
4 slices whole wheat or multigrain bread, toasted
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
2 avocados, pitted, peeled, mashed
1 lemon zested and juiced
¼ teaspoon crushed red chili
20-24 spears asparagus
2 hard cooked eggs, sliced (See tip below)
Cracked black peppers and Fleur de Sel finishing salt or Kosher salt
Trim the asparagus, bring a pot of water to the boil, salt well with kosher salt. Separately fill a bowl with ice water. When the water comes to rolling boil, add the asparagus and cook for 30 seconds to 1 ½ minutes depending on the thickness of the asparagus. Drain, and plunge into the ice water. Remove after 3-5 minutes and drain on paper towels.
Add a teaspoon of minced lemon zest to the mashed avocado along with a teaspoon of lemon juice and the crushed red chili. Mix well.
Spread each toast with the mustard, then layer with a generous amount of mashed avocado.
Top with asparagus spears and sliced egg. Sprinkle generously with Fleur de Sel and freshly cracked black pepper
Time: 15 minutes
To boil eggs with a slightly runny yolk, bring ½ inch water to the boil in a small pan. Add the two eggs, reduce heat and simmer covered for 6-7 minutes. Pour off the hot water, gently shake eggs in the pan to crack and fill the pan with ice cold water. Let sit for one minute, remove, peel and halve.
