  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Toss the onion with the flour in a bowl; season. Lay on a nonstick baking tray and spray with the oil. Bake for 10-12 mins, until crisp.
  2. To make the waffle, whisk together the egg, flour, milk, baking powder, paprika and a pinch of salt. Heat a griddle pan; brush with butter. Stir the remaining butter into the waffle mixture until combined. Pour into the pan; cook for 5 mins, until golden brown. Turn and cook for a further 3-4 mins, until cooked through. 
  3. Meanwhile, heat a pan of water to a simmer. Add the vinegar and swirl. Add 2 eggs and poach for 3 mins. Drain on kitchen paper and keep warm. Repeat with the other 2 eggs.
  4. In a bowl, mash the avocado flesh with the lime juice, then season.
  5. Divide the waffle into 4 and spread each quarter with avocado. Top with an egg and some crispy onions. 

Freezing and defrosting guidelines

Freeze the waffle only. Allow to cool completely. Wrap well in clingfilm and tin foil (to prevent freezer burn) and freeze for up to 3 months.

Loosen the tin foil and clingfilm but leave to defrost in packaging at room temperature for several hours before serving. If you wish to serve the baked goods warm, place them on a baking sheet for 10 mins in a moderate oven.
