There's nothing like soldiers and a runny egg as a tasty comfort meal: add some creamy avocado and you're set.

British Lion Eggs and world champion diver Tom Daley have come up with a tasty recipe for that's nutritious, and pretty simple to make for busy parents (Tom knows all about that, now he has baby Robbie).

It also works as a lovely, nutritious lunchtime treat for 1 (just alter amounts accordingly).


  • ¼ Avocado
  • A slice of white bread
  • 1 British Lion egg


  • STEP 1

    Boil the egg for 6 minutes. Cool under cold running water and peel off the shell. Cut in half and set aside.

  • STEP 2

    Toast the bread and cut off the crusts.

  • STEP 3

    Mash the avocado until it is very smooth and spread onto the toast. Slice into fingers and serve with the egg halves so your baby can feed themselves.

Suitable from: 6 months

In October 2018, The Food Standards Agency (FSA) confirmed that eggs safe to be eaten runny, and even raw, by vulnerable groups including infants, children and pregnant women – as long as they are British Lion-stamped.
