Start whipping up the recipe by grabbing two slices of your favorite and healthiest bread—we recommend whole wheat sourdough. Lightly toast the bread as you grill the asparagus. To grill it, spray a large pan with nonstick spray and heat to medium-high. Toss in the asparagus, throw the lid on, and let it cook for 3-4 minutes. While the asparagus is grilling, you’ll become a multitasking master and begin to poach the eggs.
Grab a pot, fill it with water and a splash of vinegar, then bring it to a boil. Crack the egg into the pot and let it cook for two to three minutes. Remove the egg from the pot with a slotted spoon and then you’re ready to assemble!
Spread one tablespoon of mashed avocado onto each slice of bread and top them each with four slices of asparagus, an egg and season to taste with black pepper. Easy as one, two, three you have a delicious breakfast to add some fun to your morning routine!
