How to cook your Eggs
Half fill a medium sized pan of with water, enough to generously cover your eggs, and bring to a simmer. Carefully lower the eggs into gently boiling water with a spoon and start your timer. For a soft-boiled egg with the white just set cook for four minutes. Cook for a further minute if you like your eggs a little firmer and for a firmer egg for this recipe cook for six minutes.
If you prefer your eggs hard-boiled egg, start them in cold water and bring up to the boil. Once the eggs are simmering set the timer for ten minutes. When your eggs are cooked to your personal preference, remove from the heat and quickly plunge into a sink full of cold water for one minute. This will arrest the cooking process. Crack the egg shells with the back of a spoon and carefully peel. They will still be very warm.
While your eggs are cooking, toast the sour dough, butter and peel and roughly break up the avocados. Carefully halve the eggs. Arrange the avocados on the toast with the eggs.
Sprinkle with the toasted pine nuts, splash with Tabasco and season generously.
