Method

  1. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk the eggs, milk and a good pinch of salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  2. In another mixing bowl combine the avocado salsa ingredients and set aside.
  3. Gently heat the butter in a large pan. When it starts to foam, put the sourdough in the toaster and add the eggs to the pan. After 2 minutes, use a spatula or wooden spoon to gently move the egg as it scrambles. Cooking it slowly will make it creamier. As soon as the egg has just scrambled take the pan off the heat.
  4. Butter the toast and serve topped with the scrambled egg and the avocado salsa. Garnish with the herbs and lime wedges, if you like.
