Recently I tried a new cooking experiment and while the true health benefits can be questioned it is VERY good, and vegetarian friendly. Meat eaters, just cook a side of bacon.
It’s so easy that it doesn’t even require a true recipe.
1 slice of toast
1 or 2 thin slices of onion sautéed
1 or 2 (I like 2) poached eggs. I make mine still runny, but you can cook it all the way if you prefer.
Top with salt, pepper, and thin curls of cheese. Tonight I happened to have some fresh lemon basil from a friend’s garden, so I diced it up on top also. It’s yummy without it though.
What I do is start the toast, start the water boiling for the eggs, then start the onion. The bread is ready before the onions. The onion is done before the water is ready, so I put the onion on the bread then move to put the eggs in the water. As the eggs cook I slice any fresh herbs. So it goes together pretty smoothly.
Honestly the cheese adds so little flavor that if you don’t do dairy (I am cutting it out) you can just leave it out. No biggie.
If you are short on time, or don’t like poached eggs, check out this easier variation I did for Blu. I have no problem with giving him fully cooked poached eggs, but he waited until I was almost done eating to decide he wanted the same thing. (Usually we all eat together but we have a variety of circumstances today that are causing a more eat when you want household.) I whipped this up just to be easier then redoing the whole thing again.
