Eggs & Avo on Sourdough (with extra bite)
Make brunch extra special with sourdough. We love classic eggs and avo with some chopped hot peppers for a bit of extra bite!
Firstly, make your sourdough loaf. Let your dough defrost (either 3-4 hours in a warm kitchen, or overnight in the fridge). Put both doughballs together (don’t use flour at this point) by shaping and moulding them in your hands. Then put the dough in a floured bowl/ proving basket and cover. It’ll now need to proof (double in size) which will take a few hours (the time will depend on the room temp, approx. 3-4 hours). If you have a nice cosy spot like a shelf over a radiator, it’ll work a treat, just don’t place over a direct heat.
When the dough has risen, pre-heat the oven to 220 degrees/ Fan 200/ Gas Mark 7. Turn onto a lined tray, and bake in an oven at for 25 mins until golden brown. A great tip if you tap it on the base it’ll sound hollow when it’s ready.
Leave to cool slightly, and meanwhile prepare your smashed avo/ eggs and whatever else gets your brunch pulse racing. Cut the loaf into chunky slices and toast lightly, then pile on your toppings and pile into your brekkie (try and take a pic first, because if you don’t share it, it wasn’t really brunch).
