Simple Pleasures 17

After visiting Cafe Boheme a few weeks ago, I posted a rhetorical question on Twitter along the lines of "avocado on toast - who knew?" The non-rhetorical answer, judging by the number of replies, is "millions of Australians." OK, fair enough, but it's not like avocados are indigenous to Soho, is it? You've got to cut me a little slack here... 

Regardless, the Aussies have got this one spot on. A good piece of toast. Many fork-friendly lumps of squidgily ripe avocado. A scattering of red chillies. A poached egg ready to burst. Salt. Pepper. A squeeze of lemon. A great breakfast / snack / brunch / lunch / supper. Avocado on toast - I salute you.

Caught the habit in Australia, and now I'm back home have serious withdrawal systems if the local supply is (a) unavailable or (b) rubbish, which it often is. Don't usually bother with the egg, but always kick off with my home-made sambal, which goes on the toast and under the avocado. Breakfast of Champions, you might say...

I was just thinking about doing a post on avocado toast with spicy eggs (mine are boiled) so stumbling across this has freaked me right out...
