Every Hip Daddy likes some kitchen time, especially when making one of our favorite dishes for the kids. And it’s always nice to experiment once in awhile, spice things up a bit- and not just in the kitchen if you catch our drift 🙂 Anyhow, back to the task at hand…eggs. We love eggs. Scrambled, fried, a delicious omelette; eggs make us happy, and our kids too. Not to mention they are a healthy start to any day, easy and fast, and can inspire some creativity too. So let’s talk about the poached egg.
It might seem daunting at first, but poached eggs are actually quite simple to make. The Hip Daddy way is as follows: boil some water in a small saucepan, crack an egg into a separate measuring cup (a longer handle helps), reduce heat to bring water to a simmer while still seeing some bubbles, slowly guide the egg into the water with the measuring cup, cook for 4 minutes, remove egg with larger spoon, and let dry. It’s that simple. Now the fun begins…
The perfect poached egg sandwich. Toast some bread, add the avocado, slice of cheese, some well done bacon, add the poached egg…boom, you just created a beauty of a sandwich that you and the kids will first, devour, then ask for another. Yum. Or how about a little dinner time fun? Put a poached egg on a juicy cheeseburger or veggie burger and you just out did Shake Shack and Tasty Burger #justlikethat.
Don’t underestimate the power of the poached. It’s Monday, eat some eggs.
