I absolutely love a BLT with sliced avocado and an egg. Recently, I've been trying out grain bowls, and I thought the flavors of my favorite sandwich would work really well. My family agreed! —Elisabeth Larsen, Pleasant Grove, Utah
Prepare quinoa according to package directions. Combine 3 tablespoons olive oil, basil, 1 tablespoon vinegar and lemon juice. Add to cooked quinoa; stir to combine.
Place 2-3 in. water in a large skillet with a high side; add remaining vinegar. Bring to a boil; adjust heat to maintain a gentle simmer. Break cold eggs, 1 at a time, into a small cup; holding cup close to surface of water, slip egg into water. Cook, uncovered, until whites are completely set and yolks begin to thicken but are not hard, 3-5 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, lift eggs out of water. Keep warm.
In a large skillet, heat remaining oil over medium heat. Cook tomatoes until they begin to release their juices, 8-10 minutes. Add arugula; cook and stir just until arugula is wilted, 1-2 minutes.
To serve, divide quinoa evenly among 4 bowls. Add tomatoes, arugula, avocado slices and crumbled bacon. Top each bowl with a poached egg.
