Tea Sandwich: Avocado & Quail Egg

This tea sandwich is a mini version of what I usually have for breakfast most days of the week — avocado toast with an egg.

A few notes:
- I like my eggs to be a little runny so I boiled them for exactly 2 minutes and 30 seconds. For a firm yolk, boil them for 3 minutes and 15 seconds. Use a timer.
- Have a bowl with cold water ready to chill the eggs right after boiling.
- Create indents in the avocado to make sure the eggs don't slide off. They're pretty slippery.
- To make it a little easier to place the eggs on top of the avocado, slide them into four pieces and spread them out.

Thanks, Margaret! I had to hunt around for the quail eggs, but I was able to find them at Chelsea Market, in New York,

YAY! I know where I am going this weekend :)
