Bacon, Egg, Avocado Toast
1 slice of sprouted whole-grain bread or your favorite sourdough
½ avocado, smashed
1 soft-boiled egg
2-3 slices of turkey bacon
For the Pickled Red Onion:
1 red onion, very thinly sliced
½ cup white vinegar
¼ cup boiling water
1 Tbsp coconut sugar
½ tsp of sea salt
For the Topping:
½ tsp of chili flakes, optional
¼ cup arugula, optional
Pepper + salt, to taste
1. To make pickled red onions, add the sliced onion to a mason jar and cover with vinegar, hot water, coconut sugar, and ½ tsp of sea salt. Use a fork to submerge the onion so it’s covered by the mixture. Set aside. Tip: Pickled red onions are best when marinated for at least 30 minutes, so consider making them the night before and storing overnight in the fridge.
2. Place eggs in a saucepan with water, and bring the water to a rolling boil. Once boiling, turn off heat, but keep the pot on the element for 6 minutes. Once time is up, drain immediately and place eggs in an ice bath (small bowl of cold water filled with ice cubes). Let eggs cool for 5 minutes and then remove and peel. Tip: If you prefer runnier soft-boiled eggs, cook for 5 minutes instead.
3. Meanwhile, sauté a few slices of turkey bacon on medium-high heat until brown or crispy on both sides.
4. Scoop half the avocado into a bowl and smash with a fork.
5. Toast bread and top with smashed avocado. Sprinkle with a touch of sea salt. Layer the remaining ingredients in the following order: Pickled onion, turkey bacon, soft-boiled egg (halved).
6. Top with arugula, chili flakes, and salt and pepper to taste.
