  • Fill a large saucepan with 2 to 3 inches of water and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and keep the water at a gentle simmer. Crack egg into a small bowl then gently slip egg into the simmering water, holding the bowl just above the surface of water. Cook until egg white is firm and the yolk thickens, 2 1/2 to 3 minutes. Remove the egg from the water with a slotted spoon and dab on a paper towel to remove excess water.

  • Place prosciutto on the toast. Spread a generous layer of avocado on top; season with salt and pepper. Add pancetta; top with the poached egg.

The combination of flavors will wow you and your brunch guests. If you don't have pancetta or prosciutto just use bacon and thin sliced black forest ham. Read More

What a nice change from the usual eggs and bacon. Absolutely delicious and so easy to prepare. I used lightly toasted sourdough and I served it with fresh fruit. A champagne worthy breakfast/brunch. Read More

I've been fixing a version of this for many years being a former Californian I was raised eating Avocados since I was a child but I had never fixed this with Pancetta and it's something I always have in the freezer. I fix this the day after I bake bread because it's so good on home baked bread. I use thin sliced ham because I find the prosciutto hard to cut through when everything else is soft. The flavor of this simple dish is outstanding. I also fix this sometimes with a soft fried egg saves a pan! Read More
