Entered for safe-keeping. From Bettina Newman RD and David Joachim's "Lose Weight the Smart Low-Carb Way". These may be cooked 1-2 days ahead, refrigerated in a covered container, and reheated at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes, or served at room temperature in a sandwich with sprouts and sliced cheese.
- Melt 1 tablespoon of the butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium low heat.
- Add the eggs and sprinkle with the salt, pepper, and marjoram or basil (work in batches if necessary).
- Cover and cook until the whites are set and the yolks are almost set, 3-5 minutes. (For steam-basted eggs, add 1 teaspoon water to the pan and cover with a lid; this helps the whites to set evenly).
- Remove to plates.
- PREPARE VINEGAR SAUCE AND GARNISH:.
- Place the skillet over low heat and add the remaining 1 tablespoon butter. Cook until the butter turns light brown, 1-2 minutes. Add the vinegar.
- Pour the vinegar mixture over the eggs.
- Sprinkle with the parsley (if using). Serve hot.
Very tasty -- I use balsamic vinegar and minced a little raw garlic into the dressing. Hmmm!
I made these for breakfast today and halved the recipe just fine. This dish was different but good. Some bites were amazing and other bites were strange. I did like the vinegar sauce on top. It was eaten by myself. My son had one bite and didnt like it but his tastes are different. This is definitely an adult breakfast. Thanks for posting:)
This dish is the surprise hit I thought it would be! I would never have paired poached eggs with a vinegar sauce. I splurged and used a fancy sherry vinegar; I would definitely use a tasty red wine-based vinegar again (not balsamic). Delicious doesn't get much more simple than this! Good brunch fair.
