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!
