pimp your eggs

Yes, that's right. Another weekend, another breakfast post featuring poached eggs. I promise, I do eat other things too! This morning Rich and I woke up at my parents' house near Winchester - we're house/dog sitting for the weekend - and had planned on going out for some breakfast (the Cornerhouse in Winchester does a great one!). Feeling tired and lazy, I looked in the fridge on the off-chance Mum and Dad might have some bits and pieces we could throw together rather than going out, and to my delight found the ingredients for something delish. English muffins, bacon, spinach, poached eggs and tomatoes/mushrooms. PJs still on I threw the following together, and boy was it good.

My parents have an Everhot (like an Aga) which can be a bit of a bitch to cook on, but between the two hot plates and the rather techy induction plate it made for the perfect egg-poaching station. Electric hobs just don't cut it for heat-control! I fried the bacon, eggs and mushrooms in a non-stick pan without any oil, then popped in the warming oven to keep toasty. Whilst wilting the spinach I toasted the muffins on the hot plate and poached the eggs; throw it all together and you've got something magical. 

More breakfast posts here and here - enjoy!
