Romancing Your Poached Egg

Blackstone EggsRomancing your food takes a few extra steps well worth the final taste experience.  Sure enough a poached egg or two on buttery toast is a great breakfast, why not add a little bit of love, unique ingredients, take your poached eggs to new heights! Bon Appetite egg lovers ;)

Blackstone Eggs

Saute then mince three slices of bacon; set aside. Reserve drippings. Cut six slices of tomato 1/2" thick. Season with salt and pepper, dip in flour and saute the tomato slices in the bacon drippings until golden brown. Place one tomato slice per plate, sprinkle with bacon, top with a poached egg. Now this is the romancing part...drizzle with Hollandaise sauce, sprinkle with chopped parsley.

Tips:
  • Place this recipe atop a toasted, lightly buttered English muffin.
  • Put a hooker of Hollandaise sauce on the side
  • Make a side dish of fruit compote or salad to compliment the Blackstone Eggs
  • Consider this recipe for lunch or dinner
  • Whisk in 1-2 teaspoons of Dijon or brown mustard into Hollandaise sauce

Note in Grandma Katie's journal - Sat. Oct 4th - 1st time. Evidently this recipe was delicious enough that Grandma made a note about the first time she tried this recipe.

Knorr Hollandaise SauceRecommendation: Knorr Classic Sauces, Hollandaise Sauce Mix, 0.9-Ounce (Pack of 24) -I've found this Knorr product to be very delicious and a real time-saver. Homemade Hollandaise sauce takes time, attention and a bit of skill, so this really is the next best thing. You can also use it on more then just this recipe. As one of the mother sauces, known in French cuisine, it's wonderful on pasta, chicken and more. With additions such as wine, horseradish, tarragon or mint you can change the flavor for your particular recipe.
