Poached eggs with av­o­cado and chorizo jam IN­GRE­DI­ENTS (SERVES 2)

Onion, 1, chopped Gar­lic, 2 cloves, crushed Thyme leaves, 2 tbsp All­spice, ½ tsp, ground Smoked pa­prika, 1 tsp Bal­samic vine­gar, 50ml Tomato puree, 2 tbsp Trea­cle, 1 tbsp Chorizo, 200g, peeled, finely chopped Smoked streaky ba­con, 100g, finely chopped Eggs, 4 Av­o­cado, 1, diced Lemon, ½, juiced Sour­dough bread, 4 slices

01 To prep the jam,

heat the onion, gar­lic, herbs and spices in your best pan with a glug of olive oil. Level up by go­ing heavy on the pa­prika – a sur­pris­ing source of iron that will help ferry oxy­gen to your mus­cles dur­ing your next Balboa- es­que train­ing mon­tage. Add a lib­eral dash of that other Ital­ian stal­lion, pepsin-rich bal­samic vine­gar, to speed up the ab­sorp­tion of pro­tein af­ter a morn­ing spent box­ing frozen joints of beef. Then add the tomato puree, trea­cle, chorizo and ba­con, and sim­mer the lot for 30 min­utes.

02 Raw eggs are

great, but un­less you spend your morn­ings run­ning up un­nec­es­sary amounts of steps in a grey track­suit, mum­bling out the side of your mouth, we rec­om­mend fol­low­ing Miche­lin­starred chef Mar­cus Ware­ing’s lead. Get your hands on the fresh­est eggs pos­si­ble then: “Bring salted wa­ter to a boil with a splash of white wine vine­gar. Whisk the wa­ter, crack an egg into a cup and pour it in.” Sim­mer for 3½ min­utes for a yolk worth shout­ing about.

03 Next, it’s time

to hit the sore­nesss­lash­ing omega-3s in the form of de­li­cious av­o­cado. Blend it up with lemon juice, olive oil and sea­son­ing, then spread on your toasted sour­dough bread. Layer on chorizo jam and top it off with ti­tle-wor­thy poached eggs for heavy­weight ben­e­fits.
