It's quite excellent to use runny yolks as natural sauce.

You know I love avocado Jan but I've never tried it sautéd or even hot, but the soft boiled egg and avocado combination sounds beyond delicious! Whenever I need a new idea I always come and scroll back to get ideas, merci beaucoup 😊

Boiled eggs are just so delicious. I tend to have them as a quick mid week evening meal when I can't be fussed to cook much after work.
