  1. I love eggs and avocado for breakfast……am liking the idea of the feta cheese incorporated into this breakfast.

    Definitely going to try this recipe at my next breakfast. Looks yummy.

      1. Yes I did make this. I had totally forgotten to tell you. I omit the vinegar when doing the eggs though as I am allergic to it. It’s very yummy and so easy to make too. 🙂

  2. Not using vinegar still poaches the eggs and I’m not left with that vinegar taste. There are lots of different ways to poach eggs these days.
