Cooking in Colorado

I love to cook and one of the things I am enjoying these days is cooking in other people’s kitchens. Recently I cooked a chicken dinner in Arizona and below is a video of me cooking Avocado Toast and Basted Eggs in Colorado. I hope you enjoy this video.


2 eggs (chicken or duck)

1 ripe avocado

2 pieces of toast

roasted walnut oil or olive oil

fresh lemon


Cut the avocado in half. Remove the seed. Scoop out the avocado and place it in a bowl. Squeeze some fresh lemon juice (1 tsp) into the bowl and add 1 tbl of roasted walnut oil or olive oil. Mash it up and mix it into a creamy mixture. Spread onto your toast.

Put one pat of butter into the frying pan and melt. Add 2 eggs and cook for 30 seconds (if chicken eggs, a little longer if duck eggs) then add 1 tbl of water and cover the eggs and set the timer for 1 minute 45 seconds. If you don’t care for runny eggs cook a little longer to your liking. (Duck eggs take longer to cook than chicken eggs.)

When the eggs are done put them on top of your avocado toast and enjoy!

Have you ever made avocado toast? I would love to know what you do differently.
