Zalfie Brunch at The Bakery


We enjoyed a slow Sunday morning together. I woke up around 8 a.m. to let the dogs out and started to gather things to prepare our breakfast. I thought I'd share the results here! I purchased everything we needed at our new Lidl location. I'd say it all worked out to around $3 per serving. Much less than what you'd expect to pay to dine out. 

This recipe is heavily inspired by some of my favorite YouTubers, Pointless Blog + Zoella. You can see how Zoe makes their signature breakfast dish here. Skip to about the 17-minute mark if you're just interested in the food.

So, without further ado, here's a little recipe for avocado bagels with poached eggs and roasted tomatoes!


Everything Bagels
Large Eggs
Vine Tomatoes
Balsamic Vinegar
Salt + Pepper
Olive Oil
Red Chili Flakes


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Roast the tomatoes with oil, salt, and pepper for 15-20 minutes until they're soft. While the tomatoes are roasting, heat water in a pot on the stove with a bit of vinegar. Crack each egg individually into a glass bowl or ramekin. When the water is hot, give it a swirl before slowly tipping each egg into the pot. Cook the eggs for about 3 minutes and then use a slotted spoon to remove them, placing into a cold water bath. Toast the bagels to your liking and then top with sliced avocados, salt, and pepper. You can serve the ingredients layered as an open-faced sandwich or deconstructed so that it's a bit less messy. Keep in mind that the eggs and tomatoes will be quite juicy! Enjoy.
