The Best Thing That Anyone Has Ever Had For Breakfast

One of the things I love most about working from home is not having to eat breakfast in the shower while checking the train schedule.

It’s a luxurious day when I work from home--I rise an hour later, have breakfast at my leisure, and generally forget to bother with the time-sucking nonsense of basic hygiene. But more importantly, when I work from home I make the greatest thing that anyone has ever had for breakfast, and today, I’m honored to show you what I scarf down while writing a press release while Rhubarb snores softly at my feet. 


Ingredients:
·   Bread or English muffin
·   1 or 2 eggs
·   Arugula or spinach
·   1 beefsteak tomato
·   1 avocado
·   Salt and pepper

Directions:
I poach the perfect egg by using the microwave (whatever, I’m not a real chef--someone come over and teach me how to poach)

But seriously, this works, and it's easy. Simply fill a cup or bowl about 2/3 the way with water, crack one or two eggs right into the water and microwave for 30-60 seconds. Once you get over how astonishingly simple it is to make the perfect poached egg, remind yourself to swing back here and thank me in the comments.

Toast your bread and give it a thin layer of butter if you’re so inclined. Then simply layer on some sliced tomato, a little salt and pepper, arugula and avocado slices. Carefully place the poached egg atop and finish with a little more salt and pepper.

Super easy, and literally, the greatest thing you’ve ever had for breakfast…until you put hollandaise sauce on it, but that’s for brunch, so, another time. 


Here's what Rhubarb does the entire day while I work from home:
