Ingredients
  1. 4 slices of bread. (I used sourdough but any bread is fine)
  2. 2 free range eggs
  3. Handful of spinach
  4. 1 avocado sliced thinly
  5. Smoked salmon
  6. Olive oil
  7. Salt and pepper
Instructions
  1. Take a biscuit cutter (I used a heart shaped one for Valentine's Day) and cut out a hole in the middle of one slice of bread.
  2. Heat a large frying pan on the job and add a glug of olive oil. When the oil is hot add your two slices of bread and begin to fry until golden. Turn the bread over and begin to fry the other side. Crack the egg into the hole and let the egg cook over a medium heat until the white is set but the yolk remains runny.
  3. Once the egg is cooked remove the fried bread from the pan. Place the full slice of bread on a plate. Lay over the smoked salmon, sliced avocado and spinach. Place the other piece of toast with the egg on top and serve straight away.
