Poached Egg on Toast with Chipotle Mayonnaise, Bacon & Avocado Recipe | cookincanuck.com #breakfast #brunch

Before I learned to poach an egg, the only chance I had of eating Eggs Benedict was at a restaurant. It is the only thing on a brunch menu that I simply cannot resist. When I am at home, however, rooting through the fridge for breakfast ideas while on the brink of a hypoglycemic meltdown (seriously, I am a little tough to take when I’m hungry), the last thing I want to do is mess with a finicky Hollandaise sauce. The challenge, however, is to replace the creaminess of the traditional sauce with a quick alternative.

That’s where the chipotle mayonnaise comes into play. In less than a minute, mayo, chipotle peppers, and lime juice are combined to make a smooth, smoky sauce that will lend a little kick to your morning. Pile whatever you choose on top of the toast and mayo – tomatoes, ham, queso fresco cheese – whatever tickles your fancy.  I chose crispy bacon and fresh avocado to round out my open-faced breakfast sandwich. Even though poaching an egg is very easy, you could replace it with a scrambled or fried egg.

The recipe:

The chipotle mayonnaise:
In a medium bowl, stir to combine mayonnaise, chipotle pepper, adobo sauce and lime juice.

The rest:
Toast bread until golden brown. Spread 1 tablespoon chipotle mayonnaise on each piece of toast. Top each with 2 slices avocado and 1/2 piece bacon.

Poach eggs according to my tutorial, How to: Poach an Egg. Poach the eggs in two batches (four per pan). If you would like them to be ready at the same time, I recommend using two pans, with a 1 teaspoon of vinegar for each.

Lay one poached egg on top of each piece of toast. Garnish with cilantro, if desired. Serve immediately.

Wow Dara…..you really made an effort with this breakfast. I’m lucky if I even eat cereal. Hope your family knows just how lucky they are!

Oh, believe me – the kind of breakfast only happens on the weekends when there is plenty of extra time. Otherwise, it is cereal and fruit for us.

I can SO identify. And I even have the perfect All Clad egg poaching set but still…that’s a lot of little cups to wash out and it just seems easier sometimes to eat…well, Cheerios.

That mayo would work for me in a lot of ways…all of which are making me very hungry right about now…thanks!

15 Dara (Cookin' Canuck) March 18, 2011 at 3:34 pm

I’ve got the egg poaching part down to a science now, but making a Hollandaise sauce on a morning when I am really hungry (& can’t wait any longer) doesn’t appeal to me.

Okay I can’t tell a lie I’m not a fan of poached eggs or sunny side up one’s either. I wish that I did after looking at your photo though. However I am going to have to make jars of the chipotle mayo for my surfer. He’ll love it!!

Reply

31 Dara (Cookin' Canuck) March 19, 2011 at 10:09 am

Red, this would be just as good with scrambled eggs. As long as you have bacon, avocado and chipotle mayo, you’ll be golden.

32 marla March 19, 2011 at 6:04 am

Dara, this is such a great idea! Even though hollandaise is easy, it does take some patience and attention. The chipotle mayo is a perfect spread with these eggs. Must try this weeknend. xo

Eggs Benedict for me every time we go out for breakfast – my absolute favourite breakfast treat. I can’t wait to try this Dara, in fact, I will probably try this morning if I can sweet talk my daughter to running out to the market for avocado. Thanks!

I like what you are doing very much with your recipes. So thoughtful to build upon your basic lessons and then create a simple, yet complex – easy to make, yet only you would think to create – recipes like this. YUM. The chipotle may is so brilliant. I am sure the lime juice makes it sparkle. This is the take away jewel for me, here, today. When I open a can, I separate the peppers with a little sauce and wrap them individually and freeze them. I love the flavour, but find the older I get, the less I can tolerate the heat! (rats!).
Thanks for the inspiration and the gorgeous plating!

Fixed this tonight for dinner and boy did we LOVE it. I grilled some tomato slices in garlic olive oil to serve along side and we literally licked our plates. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe. This will be served at our first camping trip this summer!
