Servings 2 servings


  • 5 fresh eggs
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, +1 teaspoon
  • 1/2 leek, sliced then into ribbons*
  • 2 tablespoons goat cheese
  • 1/2 avocado, optional
  • salt and pepper


  • Break the 5 eggs into a bowl and add in the milk. Whisk with anticipation (and vigor:)) until the eggs become slightly stiff.
  • Warm up 1 tablespoon of the oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add in the leek and sauté until wilted, about 5 minutes.
  • Give the eggs another few stirs, and add the extra teaspoon of oil to the pan. Then, tilt the pan creating a little puddle of oil in one corner. Pour the eggs into the oil and slowly level off the pan setting it back on the hot stove.
  • Let the eggs cook slowly over medium heat. Once the edges start to settle, take a wooden spoon and gently push the edges toward the middle letting the uncooked eggs move out towards the edge to cook. Do this just a few times until the eggs are almost done.
  • Sprinkle with goat cheese and avocado. Serve with thick toast.


You may skip the leek or substitute 1/4 cup chopped onion or a average sized shallot, chopped.
