As a child (and still occasionally when I visit), my father made/makes me poached eggs on buttered toast.
This is my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE home cooked breakfast!!
The Original Dad Style
Bring a saucepan of water to a rolling boil.
Gently place un-cracked eggs into water (works well to use a slotted spoon)
Allow eggs to cook for 4 minutes.
Transfer eggs (with slotted spoon) into a bowl.
Run cold water briefly over egg to cool enough for handling.
Tap egg with a knife and carefully remove the shell.
Place eggs on buttered toast and sprinkle with salt-n-pepper.
Usually reserved for my weekend mornings, this is an event about relaxation and reminiscing...the flavors remind me of childhood. While I am pretty sure it will never taste the same as when my Dad makes it for me...this is a suitable substitution.
This 4 minute egg dish is for you Dad!!
