Originally published March 2008. (Sponsored post by egg Farmers of Canada.)

I was prompted to make this Guacamole Eggs Benedict this morning, not only because I woke up absolutely ravenous, which rarely happens, but because this past week we celebrated the nutritional goodness of eggs and the hard work of egg farmers around the globe on World Egg Day.

You can read more about that here.

I made a delicious Steak and Eggs Breakfast sandwich to celebrate the day and have had breakfast sandwiches on the brain ever since. My new obsession with incredible breakfast sandwiches comes from a recent visit to the Coastal Cafe in Halifax, who make incredible breakfasts.

I particularly enjoyed a dish there that combined guacamole and poached eggs. As Forrest Gump would have said, “they go together like peas and carrots”.

This sort of open faced sandwich makes an incredible brunch dish of course, but is also a great thing to make as a very satisfying ‘Breakfast for Dinner’ meal. That’s something we often do at our house.

Yield: 4 servings

Guacamole Eggs Benedict with Fresh Tomato Jalapeño Salsa

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients

  • 4 slices of crusty bread, toasted
  • 4-8 eggs, poached (over-easy or scrambled are fine too if you prefer)
  • 8 slices bacon, crisp cooked and roughly chopped

For the guacamole

  • 1 large ripe avocado, or 2 small
  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced
  • 1/2 tsp lemon zest, finely chopped
  • juice of 1/2 small lemon
  • 1/2 tsp fresh black pepper
  • 2 tbsp hot sauce, optional or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt, or to taste

For the salsa

  • 2 medium tomatoes, de-seeded, diced small (I used one red and one yellow for good colour)
  • 1/4 cup red onion, finely minced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • salt and pepper to season
  • 1 small jalapeño pepper, finely minced and de-seeded
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice (a small squeeze)

Instructions

  1. It's important to have all your ingredients at room temperature for the guacamole and salsa so that they don't cool down the eggs and toast and make the entire dish too cold to enjoy. Leave the ingredients out on the counter overnight if you plan to make this in the morning.

To prepare the guacamole

  1. Crush the avocado roughly in a mortar and pestle or just mash with a fork.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and stir well.
  3. Store in a glass bowl with plastic wrap touching the surface of the guacamole to preserve the colour.

To prepare the salsa

  1. Simply toss all of the ingredients together in a glass or plastic bowl.
