Avocado and poached egg recipe

Avocado & poached egg recipe

Ingredients
  

  • 2 Large McQueens Dairies free range eggs
  • 2 Slices of bread
  • 1/3 of an avocado, smashed
  • Salt and pepper for topping
  • Small handful of cherry tomatoes, sliced in half.

Instructions
 

  • Bring a pot of water to boil (make sure to use enough water to cover the eggs when they lay in the bottom).
  • Crack the egg into a small individual cup, so that it's ready to pour into the water.
  • Using a spoon, begin stirring the water in a large, circular motion (like a tornado).
  • Once the water is really moving, add the eggs. The motion of the water will wrap the egg white around itself so the egg stays together as it cooks.
  • Cook the eggs for 2½ to 3 minutes, then remove with a slotted spoon.
  • Whilst the egg is cooking, toast your bread. The add the smashed avocado on top then add your poached egg.
  • Crack open your poached egg to reveal a perfectly poached, yellow yolk inside.

For best results, poach one egg at a time. However if you are tight on time, adding one after the other can also work. You may have to spin the water again before adding the 2nd one for the maximum effect. You can also pre make your poached eggs and simply add them into warm water before serving if you wish to make them ahead of time. If you find that the eggs whites are splitting, it means the water wasn’t swirled fast enough. To avoid this, make sure you insert the eggs as soon as the spoons comes out.

You can add various toppings to your avocado and poached egg meal. Cherry tomatoes are a healthy favourite to add but simply just adding salt and pepper is equally as nice. This recipe can be made the night before and simply heated in a microwave if you wish to have it for lunch the following day.

The great thing is, you can have eggs delivered straight to you doorstep along with your milk. This means you are never without if you are in the mood to make poached eggs with avocado on toast.

The old cliché saying goes – breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Various studies have proven this to be true. We have come up with 10 delicious breakfast smoothie recipes to help fuel you up for the day ahead.

Is it healthy to have smoothies for breakfast?

Smoothies can make a healthy breakfast that is if you have a fair balance of ingredients and nutrients. This includes protein, carbs, and healthy fats. Smoothies that heavily rely on vegetables over fruit cut down your sugar and increase the fibre content. You also want to avoid adding a lot of fruit juice and sweeteners, like syrups and honey, to limit the sweet stuff. Adding yogurt helps to make your smoothies more filling, so you will stay fuller for longer.

The liquid bases you use in your smoothie also play a big role. Fruit juices are great however if you want to opt for a healthier, less sweet option, then go for milk or a non-dairy milk alternative, like almond, coconut, or oat milk.

Can I have a breakfast smoothie every day?

If you’re looking to get your own blender to use and start making smoothies at home, you’re already one step ahead with saving yourself money. This way you can control exactly what goes into your smoothies. Enjoying a breakfast smoothie every day is absolutely fine if you make sure it has a good balance of nutrients.

When life gets busy, we often look for convenience and quick & easy meals to see us through. Peanut butter overnight oats are the perfect quick breakfast solution. With only 5 ingredients required and only 5 minutes needed to prepare it.

What are overnight oats?

Overnight oats are a quick and easy breakfast meal or snack which is made by soaking oats overnight. They are simple to prepare (no cooking or ovens needed!) and great for when you need to plan your breakfast or snack ahead of time, especially for those with hectic mornings. Whilst this recipe is for peanut overnight oats, it can be easily amended to fit your preferred taste. We also think this peanut butter overnight oats recipe would make the perfect meal to enjoy after a session at the gym.

Peanut Butter Overnight Oats

Which types of oats should I be using?

The type of oats you use are important too. Using quick oats will cause them to become far to soggy when soaked in the milk. Using porridge oats will make for a different texture to the rolled oat which is thick in consistency. This is fine if you are happy with a thicker consistency however many people do prefer to use rolled oats. Rolled oats give a smoother texture and is generally the preferred type of oat when it comes to making your peanut butter overnight oats.

As previously mentioned, you do not have to add peanut butter to your overnight oats. You can adjust the ingredient to fit your own taste. Some people substitute the peanut butter for berries, yogurt or even chocolate spread if you want a sweeter version. Yogurt is a great alternative to add as it makes for a light and refreshing breakfast snack for your oats. At McQueens Dairies, we offer yoghurt to be delivered with your milk deliveries. Your local milkman will drop it off to your doorstep before 7am to ensure you have what you need to make your overnight oats.

Peanut Butter Overnight Oats

What do overnight oats taste like? Do they taste good?

If you like porridge or oat milk then we are sure that you will like overnight oats. The texture is what can put some people off, however once you have gotten used to the texture, you will start to enjoy them. The great thing about overnight oats is that there is no one strict recipe you have to follow. If you are allergic to nuts, add yogurt instead of the peanut butter, if you are unable to drink dairy milk you can simply use any milk alternative such as almond, coconut or oat milk.

Can you eat heat the overnight oats and eat warm?

Your peanut butter overnight oats can be eaten hot or cold. To heat, microwave for around 45-60 seconds or transfer to a saucepan and heat over medium heat until warmed through. Taking your peanut butter overnight oats to work means you save time and will save you money, stopping you from going to the shops for lunch.

peanut butter overnight oats

Can you use steel cut oats for this recipe?

Many recipes on the internet debate the success of using steel cut oats to make overnight oats. They will take longer, require more liquid, and probably won’t be quite as soft. They may also be more difficult to digest. We would recommend using rolled oats for this recipe.

How long do the peanut butter overnight oats last for?

If kept refrigerated your oats should last around 5 days. This is great for batch making ahead of time so you can quickly grab them for breakfast when rushing out the door or as a quick pre made snack.

Below is our recipe for peanut butter overnight oats. As already stated, you can switch out some ingredients for your own and try a variety of McQueens milk or other alternative milk products.

Peanut Butter Overnight Oats Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 125ml McQueens Dairies milk (or any other milk alternative of your choice)
  • 2 tbsp Peanut Butter
  • 1 tbsp Maple Syrup
  • 45 grams Rolled Oats
  • Sliced banana, strawberries or raspberries (Optional)
  • Granola (Optional)

Instructions:

  • For the first step, add the milk, peanut butter, and maple syrup to a bowl (or other sweetener) and stir with a spoon to combine. (The peanut butter doesn’t need to be completely mixed with the milk but make sure it is slightly combined)
  • Then using a spoon, press down firmly to ensure all the oats are fully submerged in the milk.
  • Cover securely with a lid or seal and set in the refrigerator overnight
  • The following day, remove from the fridge and add your fresh fruit (optional) and enjoy.

You can play around with the recipe/quantity of ingredients to find what works for you. You can add a little vanilla to your oats and the recipe is completely open to your interpretation. The refrigeration part is key. Your oats need to be placed in the fridge for at least 6 hours and is usually best done at night time (hence the name, overnight oats).

Whilst the convenience of having an almond milk delivery to your doorstep is one we all love, making your own can be just as fun. You might be wondering, how is almond milk made? This homemade almond milk recipe allows you to control the amount of sweetness and allows you to test different thicknesses to the dairy free milk.

Almond milk is a non dairy milk alternative made from almonds. It has a nutty flavour and a creamy consistency and can be used as a replacement for cow’s milk.  It’s a plant-based milk alternative that is suitable for vegans and contains no dairy or animal ingredients. It comes in different types such as sweetened and unsweetened. Unsweetened vegan milk is thought to be healthier for you and can be used in direct replacement for cow’s milk.

So, how is almond milk made? It is very simple to make your very own almond milk with the method only requiring only 2 ingredients, 10 minutes, and a blender.

Almond milk

How is Almond milk made?

Making your very own almond milk starts with soaking almonds overnight in cool water. Warm water will drain the flavour out of the almonds so make sure the water is cool, but not freezing cold. It is also important to leave the almonds in a fridge overnight and not out on the counter. In the morning, drain the almonds thoroughly and then add to a blender. In the blender, add water, salt and anything else you wish to add. You can add vanilla, dates or berries for different variations of flavours.

Once added, blend for 1-2 minutes until combined. Then using a nut milk bag, if you don’t have one of these you can easily use a clean tea towel, strain out the mixture into a bowl or glass.

How long your milk lasts depends on the temperature of your fridge and how fresh the ingredients are. On average we would say your milk should last around 4-5 days.

Homemade almond milk

We hope the answer to your question – ‘how is almond milk made?’ has been answered however if making homemade almond milk is not for you and you wish to have an almond milk delivery we offer unsweetened almond milk and sweetened almond milk. The creamy and fresh tasting almond milk can be delivered twice weekly to your doorstep by our local milkmen.

You may have tried our delicious McQueens oat milk before, but have you ever tried making it yourself? Homemade oat milk is not as complicated as you might think and can be done using only one ingredient. Oat milk is lactose free which makes oat milk perfect for those who are lactose intolerant. It is important to note that making oat milk is not like making other alternative milks like almond milk. With homemade oat milk, the goal is to press and squeeze the the mixture as little as possible. This is to make sure you have the right consistency. Read below to find out how to make your own oat milk. Alternatively you a can get your Oat milk delivered to you door twice week in cartons or reusable glass bottles.

Homemade Oat Milk

Ingredients
  

  • 100 g Porridge Oats

Instructions
 

  • Put the porridge oats into a bowl and fill it up with water from the tap. Cover the bowl with a tea towel and let the bowl sit for 4 hours or overnight. Do not put in the fridge.
  • Once you have let the oats overnight or for 4 hours, take a sieve and sieve the mixture and draining the water. Rinse the oats under the tap for a few seconds.
  • Now, put the oats into a blender or food processor with 750ml of cold water and 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt. Blend until completely smooth with no oats visible. The more you blend, the creamier your homemade oat milk will be.
  • Put the sieve over a bowl or jug and let the mixture pour out. Leave to strain for about 1 hour.
  • When most of the mixture has been strained, take the sides of the cloth together and squeeze tightly to extract the oat milk.
  • At this point, you can bottle it up and keep in the fridge until you are ready to drink. If the oat milk is too thick for your liking, you can add 50ml of cold water until you reach the consistency you like.

The first time you make homemade milk, you might find it time consuming and tedious but the more you make it, the easier it will become. This drink will last 2-3 days in the fridge and for the best taste, we recommend you shake before use. Making this milk can be a fun task to do at the weekend and you can add your own variations to it. Some people like to add dates when making it or add more salt to it.

Homemade Oat milk

Can I use any type of oats?

Porridge oats do work the best, however you can try using rolled oats to make your homemade milk. The coarser the oat is, the longer it take for them to soak and sieved so porridge oats are best.

My homemade milk is too thin, what can I do?

If your cloth is too thick, this can cause the drink to become thin. This is because more of the mixture is being trapped in the cloth. A muslin cloth is a great type of cloth to use to make sure your milk isn’t too thin. As the recipe states, you can add water to thin the milk but there isn’t much you can do if it’s too thin.

My milk separates when in the fridge, why has this happened?

This is an common occurrence and can happen with almond milk or soya milk. To help with this, simply shake or stir the oat milk before consuming to bring it together again.

Making your own non dairy milk is a great way to start if you are looking to create your own alternative milk. The oat drink is a great addition to tea, coffee, breakfast cereal or even as a drink on its own.

We’re sure that this recipe will spark your interest for making your very own homemade alternative milk. It is a great non dairy alternative to cow’s milk and is widely used for those unable to consume traditional cow’s milk or for anyone who follows a vegan diet.

Poached eggs taste great. They taste even better when you know the secrets to ensure the perfect shape and the yolk seamlessly slides out the whites. Why not have a go using your McQueens Dairies Free Range Eggs?

Top tips

  1. When it comes to the depth of the water, using a pot with a minimum of 3-4 inches of water is what will give you the perfect round shape to your poached egg. Using a shallow pan with an inch or 2 of water, you will end up with a flat poached egg.
  2. Using fresh eggs that have been delivered or bought the day of you making your poached eggs will result in tighter whites. It will also give more of the spherical shape. Our delicious free range eggs delivered in the morning will be perfect for this.
  3. Cracking your McQueens Dairies eggs into a small sieve and draining out the liquid egg white will help to keep the shape. Transfer the eggs into a smaller dish, this will make it easier to slide into the pot of water.
  4. Adding vinegar to the water will help the egg to maintain the round shape. Adding salt to the water will change the density of the water. This will cause the egg whites to splay. Add a tablespoon of vinegar and stir it in the water at speed, then take your egg and drop it into the middle.
  5. For a firm, white and liquid yolk, set a timer for 3 minutes and then remove from the pot. Gently tap your egg to see if it is to your liking, if not, pop back into the water for a further 30 seconds.

Making homemade yoghurt isn’t as difficult or complex as you may think. It does take some time and the key is to ensure good temperature control but after you taste the finished product we think the effort is worth it. The best part is, all you need is 2 simple ingredients.

Homemade Yoghurt

Ingredients
  

  • 2 Litres McQueens Dairies Milk
  • 64 g Plain Yoghurt

Instructions
 

  • The first step is to heat up your McQueens Dairies milk. Pour the milk into a large pot on a medium-high heat and warm to just under boiling level. Stir gently to ensure the milk does not stick to the bottom of the pot.
  • Once your milk has been brought to just below boiling point, reduce the heat and allow it cool until it is warm to the touch.
  • Gently add the yoghurt to the pot of milk and whisk until the yoghurt is combined with the milk. Once this is done, remove from the heat.
  • Allow the yoghurt to set for around 4 hours. The longer it sets, the thicker it will be.
  • Once it has set for a minimum of 4 hours you can transfer to the fridge before enjoying.
  • Transfering the yoghurt into storage containers will keep your homemade yoghurt fresh for around 2 weeks.

Hints and tips for making homemade yoghurt

  1. Make sure the milk you use for this recipe is whole milk as this will give a richer taste. If you want to make low fat yoghurt, use skimmed milk and opt for a low fat yoghurt when buying.
  2. Getting your milk to the right temperature is important as this will affect the temperature. You can use a thermometer to ensure it reaches 180°F.
  3. Using air-tight jars are the best ways to store your yoghurt to maintain its freshness and keep your yoghurt for longer.
  4. To make different variations of flavours, you can simply blend any fruit of your choice and add this to the milk and yoghurt mix.
