Poached eggs for dinner is not only a fast and easy meal, but it’s also cheap and filling. And their are endless ways of eating poached eggs. My favorite right now is to place a layer of tortilla chips on a plate and cover that with spinach. Place 2 poached eggs on top of the spinach and smother in warm salsa verde or a green chili sauce and a sprinkle of cheese.
Fill a small sauce pan with 2 inches of water, bring to a simmer and add 1 T of white vinegar (red will work but it will tint the eggs whites). Carefully place a cracked egg into the simmering water. Cook it to the desired doneness. Lift out with a slotted spoon.
-Poached egg salad: Toss bitter greens (arugula, frisee, spinach etc) with an acidic vinaigrette and place a poached egg on top. Add cooked bacon, tomatoes, croutons, or other vegetables.
-Serve a poached egg over garlic roasted vegetables with a baguette
