* Tip if you like the eggs loose take the eggs out just before the 3 minutes is up- 30 seconds to be exact.
- Take eggs out with a ladle, put on a paper towel, and pat dry.

Ambers says she likes to put the poached eggs on a whole-wheat English muffin with avocado spread.

To make the avocado spread just mash the avocado and add a pinch of salt and pepper.

On the side, Amber also adds fresh fruit such as strawberries, blueberries, apples, and bananas.

This is a healthy breakfast and if you like eggs super tasty.

Amber loves presentation as well, her brothers definitely enjoy all the sweet treats and food she makes. She hopes to one day open a Cafe and visit Paris in which inspires her to perfect her macaroons and crepes.
