Avocado toast muffin with poached egg

Yes, I know- it’s sooooo trendy with these young kids right now, but hear me out. This recipe is simple and easy and makes a real impact on saving money. You can prepare the avocado any way you like, and the kicker is that the poached eggs can cook inside your muffin tin too. The trick is using a good cooking spray so they slide out nice and easy.


  • 1 Cup Fresh sourdough starter
  • 1 Cup Whole wheat flour (sifted)
  • 4-6 Tablespoons Water (as you need)
  • 1 Cup Butter (melted)
  • 2 Fresh eggs
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking soda
  • 1 Cup Sugar


  • The night before- you need to mix your sourdough starter with your flour. Start adding your water one tablespoon of water to get the dough the right consistency. Now you cover this with a towel and let it ferment overnight. This will take 8-12 hours total so you can do this before you go to bed.
  • In the morning- preheat your oven to 375F degrees and have your muffin tray with paper inserts ready to go.
  • Into your dough, add the remaining eggs, butter, salt, baking soda, and sugar to the dough. Mix this together until you have a nice mixture that can now be added to each muffin form. Fill these until they are three-quarters full. This now goes to the oven for 30 minutes.
  • In a separate muffin tray- spray this with non-stick cooking spray and crack a single egg into each. These will cook faster at 375F degrees for 8- 12 minutes, or to your liking of how runny you like your eggs.
  • Prepare your avocado however you like it. It can be mashed, sliced, or with added spices. The idea here is that you enjoy your avocado how you’ve come to expect avocado toast.
  • Take your poached eggs out first letting them cool before putting them onto your muffin.
  • When your sourdough muffins are baked- let them cool for 5 minutes and remove them from their paper covers. Slice off the muffin top or slice in half on a serving plate. Slip one poached egg onto the lower muffin piece and then put avocado slices on top of that. Top it off with your muffin top and enjoy. Alternatively, you can put a mashed avocado topping on the very top and enjoy it like that.
