Avocado Toasts

I was at a recent brunch and tried an entrée I usually overlook. Avocado Toast. Sure I like avocados, but this idea just seemed too simple or potentially bland. Wrong.  A trendy Chicago restaurant, Bar Sienna, boasts it’s their number one brunch order. Sold. A simple concept recipe with endless possibilities. The basic idea is to grab a ripe avocado, a piece of multi-grain toast and make it your own. I mashed up the avocado and spiced it up with salt and pepper and a squeeze of lemon juice. I then layered tomato, a few slices of radish and topped with a poached egg sprinkled with paprika. (A drizzle of balsamic glaze would be nice). I set the toast on a bed of greens drizzled with olive oil and salt and pepper. This is a great idea for a crowd. Speaking of crowds…as I watched order after order come out of the kitchen, I was curious how they keep making all those poached eggs. I have heard of poaching eggs days before use but was a bit skeptical that this technique would really work. Well, once again…wrong. I made the eggs the day before and reheated them in simmering water until they were warm. Genius. I now have visions of Mother’s Day brunch making Eggs Benedict for 12. I love this idea.
