We all know breakfast is the bomb, but this one literally is the bomb!
V // DF
Now i’m usually more of a ‘drop scones, not bombs’ girl (blog to follow) however on occasion sometimes as in this case it really is the bomb!
This dish was inspired by a bacon wrapped number I had seen on YouTube by a West Hollywood Eatery called Estrella. You can watch the video here. I made it for my husbands birthday breakfast and he loved it. I having recently given up most meats I wanted a vegetarian alternative that still packed that ‘what’s inside here?’ excitement and obviously was a delight to eat.
I’d like to introduce you to the Breakfast Bomb. Here were removing the bacon and replacing it with a lovely soft tortilla wrap and an addition of sautéed spinach. To finish the dish the little bombs sits on a pepper ring filled with guacamole and a final flourish of garlic aioli. I’m really pleased with how this turned out. I hope you love it too!
Prep time 10 minutes |Cook time 10-15 minutes | Average cost per person £1.50
2 tortilla wraps
2 medium, ripe avocados
2 small eggs, poached
1 large red pepper
1 garlic clove
1 large tablespoon of mayonnaise
½ bag of baby spinach
A little rocket to garnish
Pinch of chilli flakes
Salt and Pepper
Vinegar – for poaching eggs
First poach eggs to soft, here a link to my perfect poached eggs.
Prep avocado by cutting in half and removing the stone. Take out a little extra from the stone hole to fit the poached egg inside. Save this extra avocado.
Steam/ flash boil the spinach, then squeeze out as much liquid as possible and spread this over the centre of the tortilla wrap,season a touch, then lift tortilla and cup in your hand, place one half of the avocado into the middle of the wrap, add the poached egg to the hole and season. Top with the other half of the avocado and bring the sides of the wrap around to form a ball as best you can. Place o a baking tray. Spay with a little oil or butter and bake for 5 minutes in a very hot (230 ° C) oven to bake until golden.
Meanwhile make the guacamole and garlic aioli. Add a pinch of chilli flakes, a squeeze of lemon and a little finely chopped red pepper to the mashed avocado that was saved, season, guac done.
A super cheat garlic aioli is a tablespoon of mayonnaise, crushed garlic, a good squeeze of lemon and seasoning. Mix well and hey presto, done!
To serve cut a ring of pepper and fill with the guacamole. Place the breakfast bomb on top. Generally lather garlic aioli on top and scatter rocket around the base.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and this little beauty will certainly make it special.
Make your breakfast the bomb, with this bomb.
