Poached Egg In Avocado Breakfast Recipe

One of our guests had this breakfast at Makweti Safari Lodge last month, and made a special request for the recipe. Since we are in the habit of sharing Chef Phillip’s culinary secrets, we decided to make this delectable breakfast our focus this month for the benefit of everyone!

Get your own taste of the Makweti magic by making this at home. We’d love to hear how it turns out so connect with us on our Instagram page for more recipes and interesting bushveld anecdotes.


1 perfectly ripe avocado (you’ll need half one avocado for two people)
2 eggs, soft poached
Salt and pepper


Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees
Cut the avocado in half, remove the pip
Expand the fleshy nest of the avocado scooping out a little bit of fruit to make space for the egg
Place the soft poached egg into the avocado nest and bake for 4 minutes
Serve hot with sun-dried tomato salsa

Tomato And Chive Salsa


150g sun-dried tomatoes in olive oil
2 tbs chopped chives
Salt and pepper


Mix tomatoes and chives together
Add seasoning
Serve separately to avocado and egg

It’s so simple, but possibly the most delicious breakfast you’ll ever make! If you want to savour this dish first-hand at Makweti Safari Lodge, then isn’t it time you made your booking?
