  1. 1. Prepare the Avocado:
    Cut the ripe avocado in half, remove the pit, and scoop out the flesh into a bowl.
    Mash the avocado with a fork until it reaches your desired level of creaminess. Season with salt and pepper.

    2. Toast the Bread:
    Toast the slices of whole-grain bread until they’re golden brown and crisp.

    3. Poach the Eggs:
    Fill a large saucepan with water, about two-thirds full.
    Add the white vinegar to the water and bring it to a gentle simmer.
    Crack one egg into a small bowl. Create a gentle whirlpool in the simmering water by stirring it with a spoon, then carefully slide the egg into the center of the whirlpool.
    Poach the egg for about 3-4 minutes for a runny yolk or longer for a firmer yolk.
    Use a slotted spoon to remove the poached egg from the water and place it on a plate lined with a paper towel. Repeat with the second egg.

    4. Assemble the Toast:
    Spread the mashed avocado evenly on the toasted bread slices.
    Carefully place a poached egg on top of each slice.
    Season with additional salt, pepper, and any optional toppings you prefer.

    Pro Tip

    Use fresh, high-quality eggs for the best poaching results.
    Ensure the water for poaching is gently simmering, not boiling vigorously.
    Add a splash of white vinegar to the poaching water to help the egg whites coagulate more quickly.
    You can shape the poached eggs using a slotted spoon for a neater presentation.
