Arugula Salad with Poached Egg

Arugula Salad with Poached Egg

We’ve all heard the term Breakfast for Dinner, but have you ever considered Salad for Breakfast?

I know, I know, it sounds a little crazy. And, I guess you could technically eat this dish any time of day, but why not add a little greens to start your day?

 

Poaching eggs has been hyped up to be a daunting task, but it really couldn’t be easier. The trick is to have your water at the perfect simmer. Not a hard boil and not a slow simmer… just the right amount of bubbles to allow the egg to float and cook to the correct temperature.

Add another egg to the water and cook for 4-5 minutes, depending on your desired doneness. I tend to like mine a little less runny, but suit the cook time to your own needs.
