Poached egg on toast with sautéed sprouts

This healthy supper combines sprouts and prosciutto to make a low-calorie, high-protein dinner for one

Serves 1

Prep Time 10 mins

Cooking Time 10 mins


  • 2tsp olive oil
  • 100g brussels sprouts, sliced
  • 100g mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 garlic clove, thinly sliced
  • Pinch chilli flakes
  • 1 slice prosciutto, sliced
  • 1 egg
  • 1 thick slice wholegrain bread, toasted


  1. Heat the oil in a medium non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. Add the sprouts and mushrooms and fry for 6 min or until soft. Add the garlic, chilli flakes and prosciutto and cook for 2 min or until fragrant.
  2. Meanwhile, pour water into a small saucepan until it’s two-thirds full. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to low. Break the egg into a small jug or on to a saucer. Stir the water in the pan to form a whirlpool, then drop the egg gently into the centre. Cook, without stirring, for 3–4 min or until it’s poached to your liking. Transfer the egg to a plate with a slotted spoon.
  3. Put the toast on a serving plate and top with the sautéed sprout mixture, then the egg. Season with ground black pepper and serve.
