Bring a pan of water to boil (use enough water to cover the eggs when they lay at the bottom). Drop the metal rims (outer rim only) of two mason jar lids into the pan so they are laying flat on the bottom. When the water is boiling, turn off the heat and carefully crack the eggs directly into each rim. Cover the pan and poach for 5 minutes. 

Whilst the eggs are cooking, toast the bread and smash the avocado on each piece of toast. When the eggs are done, use a spatula to lift the eggs out of the water. Gently pull the rim of the rim off the eggs and place the poached eggs on top of the toast. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese, salt, pepper and fresh herbs : serve with the fresh quartered tomatoes.


Adding a teaspoon of vinegar to water before boiling helps the eggs stay together in the water. Most of the fats in this recipe are healthy in moderation. If you want to reduce the fats, just scale back on the avocado or use egg whites in place of eggs.
