This is a healthier, but delicious, version of Eggs Benedict I came up with one morning.
Fun ingredient fact: Do you know the difference between cage free and free range eggs? Cage free simply means the chickens weren’t raised in cages, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they have freedom to move around. Free range (or pasture-raised) means the chickens have open space in which to roam and forage. Eggs from these chickens are lower in cholesterol and higher in nutrients like vitamin E and choline, which are important for a healthy liver, nervous system, and eyes. Look for the “free range” or “pasture-rasied” phrase on egg cartons, or buy from local sources.
2 slices whole-grain toast, such as Ezekiel
2 free-range eggs
1/2 ripe avocado
1/2 cup baby spinach
Sriracha or other hot sauce (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste
Toast bread to desired doneness. While toast is still hot, distribute spinach evenly onto the two slices. Spray a pan with non-stick cooking spray. Carefully crack eggs into pan. Cook to over-easy or until whites are just cooked. Slide eggs on top of toast and break the yolks. Top with the sliced avocado, hot sauce, and salt & pepper.
