Poached Eggs

IMG_20121227_091711

I havent poached eggs in so long.  My mom use to make them for me as is, or she would add it to soup.  I forgot how tasty they really are.  My little ones loved them so much they had seconds.  I wanted to make something for lunch that was different and since it was still early enough, it would probably considered brunch.  I took a tortilla because it is lighter than bread, added a slice of ham, tomatoes, a teaspoon of mascarpone cheese and topped it with the poached eggs and some salt, pepper and parsley.  The combo turned out delish.  Hope you enjoy.

Tip:  A little secret I will share with you some of you may know already but if you add a teaspoon of vinegar to the bowling water it will help the eggs in the process of poaching.   (pictured below)

    technical difficulties this morning…I seconded the emotion about loving eggs Benedict…but I never thought to try poached eggs with mascarpone. Sounds very good.
