I remember my seven year old self squabbling with my mother over what I'd eat for dinner. It was a sticky summer night, typical of Israel, we were on vacation visiting family, and all I wanted to eat was greasy, addicting fast food. Every. Night. Those burger and fries from Burger Ranch were the most exciting thing in my eyes, and though my mother justifiably disapproved, I knew I could harp on her weakness. If I begged enough, she always gave in, because that Jewish-mother-food-obsession gene is strong in her. She would go to great lengths to make sure I ate something, anything.
As such, I've never felt debilitating hunger. I've never worried about a bare fridge. I realize even more the blessing that is when I read that 1 in 7 Americans struggle with hunger. That's huge, and pitiful. So Whitney from JewHungry collaborated with Mazon and brought together bloggers to raise awareness. She challenged us to create a meal that costs less than $5 a serving. Avocado toast with some kind of egg was the first thing that came to mind.She brought it to my attention and it truly is a must. Overall, this combo is what I eat many mornings and it powers me through until the late afternoon. I could eat for any meal and every meal. At a meager $3 a serving, it's economical, quick, easy, delicious, and filling.
fry my eggs but this time I attempted to go for the more delicate soft boiled egg. With a light prick of a fork, the silky, gentle flesh reveals the warm yolk. It pools all over the avocado mash and takes this whole situation up a notch. It took me a few attempts to get the right consistency. With the method below, I now get the perfect soft boil egg, every time. A noteworthy accomplishment given the amount of eggs I've used in the attempt.
