Rosemary & Thyme: Laura's Squishy Egg Sandwich

Barbara Miller


I have watched the series over 2-3 dozen times and always wanted Laura's Squishy Egg Sandwich from Season 3 Episode 1 "The Cup of Silence." She orders the item as a special request from the hotel owner. He serves it up and Laura says she expects to see herself credited with it's creation if it makes it to the hotel menu.She never gets to eat the sandwich (her serving is a 2 egg and 2 halves of the muffin) as a woman screams in the background and everyone is off to investigate. Well this week I've made "Laura's Squishy Egg Sandwich" two days in a row.

How to Make Rosemary & Thyme: Laura's Squishy Egg Sandwich


  1. Split the English muffin. Toast it. Place it on a plate. Spread it with the butter. You will need 1/2 the muffin per serving. Feel free to eat the other half as well.
  2. Pour water into an 8" skillet or 1 quart pot (I used the skillet) and place it on the stove over medium high heat.
  3. Add the White Vinegar and bring to a boil.
  4. While the water is heating, crack the egg into a small bowl and set aside.
  5. When the water boils, swirl the water gently to set the water in motion. I stirred mine with a slotted nylon spatula.
  6. While the water continues to swirl/spin, gently pour the egg into the center of the water. Pour close to the surface of the water.
  7. Try to keep the white of the egg together, coaxing it if needed with the spatula. Try to keep the egg from going too deep in the water and sticking to the pan by gently going under the egg with the spatula and scraping the pan. Do not break the yolk. Gently splash the boiling water over the yolk with the spatula.
  8. When the white starts to turn (cook), go under the egg and lift it up and flip it over in the water. Turn off the heat and let the egg swirl in the water a few seconds. The yolk should not be fully set/firm.
  9. Lift the cooked/poached egg from the water and place it on the buttered, toasted English Muffin half.
  10. Sprinkle with salt and pepper if desired.
  11. I served mine with half of a mashed avocado mixed with lemon juice and salsa.
