Gluten Free Poached Eggs on Toast Recipe.
When was the last time you made poached eggs? You see them on menus all of the time in restaurants, and they serve as a rich, creamy addition to simpler companion foods: grits, fried potatoes, and toast!
Note: Buttering the saucepan prior to poaching the egg helps keep the whites from sticking to it – which can be a pain to scrub off. Brilliant!
I’ve added salt, pepper and a dash of sweet paprika for a savory breakfast dish.
Being a gluten free house, our toast came from Trader Joes – smaller slice sizes, but perfect for 1 egg each. The oven method for toasting under the broiler was simple, though I did leave the oven cracked to keep an eye on the process, and the method allowed me to toast 8 slices simultaneously – enough to feed the family. Also a useful toasting alternative if you happen to be in a non-gluten free kitchen.
Simple recipe from the highly entertaining: A Thousand Ways to Please a Husband, circa 1917. Thank you Subtle Subterfuge for passing this treasure along!
