Sunny Side Up Breakfast Brioche

Bright and Cheerful Breakfast Brioche  (2 of 13)

“Keep your sunny side up” 🙂

Inspired by Teakha, my favourite quaint little teahouse located in the Poho/Sai Ying Pung area of Hong Kong, I decided to recreate this breakfast toast by using danish/brioche bread I bought downstairs from a Japanese style bakery. I love the juxtaposition of the cheerful colours – the vibrant, red, plump tomatoes contrasting with the creaminess of the green avocado – coupled with the bright, sunshine yellow of the oozing yolk from frying an egg sunny side up.

INGREDIENTS: (serves 1)

  • 1 egg
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 lime
  • 1 tomato
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 cup of pork floss, to garnish

METHOD:

1) Mash a ripe avocado up with the juice of a freshly squeezed lime. Add salt and pepper and adjust taste to your liking.

Once yolk seems to be setting, remove ring and transfer egg with a spatula to plate.

Remove and layer with the avocado, tomato and fried egg on top like an exposed healthy decker sandwich.
