Poached Eggs On Toast And More!

Colleen Sowa


My grandmother Mabel Kennedy Sullivan use to make this frequently.

This is one of the first recipes that she taught to me when I was a very little girl.

*** If you omit the toast, make the poached eggs and put on a plate with asparagus, and fried potatoes, you have a very elegant dinner!

*** Next time you make a "Chef's Salad", make croutons with the toast in a skillet, top the salad with poached eggs instead of boiled eggs! This too is a bit more elegant than the usual chef's salad.

Have fun with poached eggs!
