Poached Eggs Anyone?
While in Nebraska for the holiday we were able to stop in Fremont for a wonderful little breakfast with my Aunt. She served a fabulous breakfast of poached eggs, sausage, fruit and friendship bread. Very TASTY! I never poach eggs for guests because my poacher only holds 4 cups. What is a person to do if you have more than 2 people eating? Well my dear Aunt had the answer. She put several little custard dishes into her largest skillet and filled the bottom with about a quarter to half inch of water. Once the little bowls were tinkling together on a low boil, she added the eggs and put the lid on. Voila! Breakfast for four! How could something so simple have passed me by? I found that putting a little dab of butter in the bottom of the bowls makes the eggs slid out easily. Breakfast anyone?
