Crispy Prosciutto, Poached Egg & Avocado Salad

This crispy prosciutto, poached egg & avocado salad was put together using ingredients I had in the fridge -leftover garlic toast and prosciutto, an avocado and a new batch of eggs (I read that new eggs are most ideal for poached eggs). It was an enjoyable guilt-free breakfast after my morning run :)

1. Crispy Prosciutto

Prosciutto di Parma (Parma Ham)

This was my packet of prosciutto di Parma (aka Parma ham). Parma ham can be eaten raw but in this recipe, I am going to enjoy it cooked – crisp to perfection to be precise.

Air-Fried Crispy Prosciutto

I air-fried 2 slices of prosciutto for about 5 minutes to make them super crispy. An air fryer is ideal if you only need to crisp a few slices. Otherwise, an oven or stove top might be more efficient.

2. Quick Garlic Toast

I had leftover garlic toast from my simple prosciutto toast, so I simply reheated them in the air fryer.

3. Poached Egg

As for the poached egg, I have yet to perfect it (you can see the odd shape) as I am still learning. Mine isn’t the prettiest poached egg but I love the runny yolk and affordability of making it at home!

I boiled water with 1 tbsp of vinegar in a small pot until the water is constantly bubbling gently but never boiling. Swirl the water with a spoon to create a vortex and drop the egg into the whirlpool to cook for 3 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and its done.

4. Lemon-Olive Oil Dressing

Lemon Olive Oil Dressing
This is a simple and healthy 1-minute dressing with only olive oil, lemon juice and salt.

5. Assemble & Serve
