Ten Perfect Poached Egg Breakfast Recipe Ideas

by Jacqueline Samaroo


Not sure why, but there something about a poached egg that just simply says “sophistication”. Seems like you can turn a simple homemade breakfast into fancy restaurant-worthy fare merely by swapping out your fried egg for a poached one instead!

Whatever the reason behind the poached egg’s enviable status, the fact is, we really do love them. So, finding more delicious ways to enjoy a poached egg is always a treat. Here are 10 wonderfully perfect poached egg ways to take things up a notch at breakfast time.

Eggs Benedict


1. Quick and Easy Eggs Benedict

“I really loved the hollandaise sauce, it was the best recipe I've tried” Mochi Puffs

Mighty tasty Canadian bacon and yummy hollandaise sauce make this quick and classic breakfast a delight! Fry the bacon and set it aside, then poach the eggs in 3 inches of boiling water with a little vinegar. Remove them after 3 minutes and set them aside. Melt some butter and get ready to make the sauce. Blend together egg yolks, cayenne pepper, salt and heavy cream adding half of the hot butter. Next in are lemon juice and the remaining butter. Top your English muffin with bacon, a poached egg and a drizzle of sauce. Breakfast is served!

Once the sausage is cooked and the carrots and potatoes are tender, set it aside. Next, poach the eggs in simmering water with a little vinegar.

3. Veggie Poached Eggs

"Delicious and easy to make.” SWEETYSJD

If you have a “poached egg fear” – thinking you could never do them right – then here’s a good cheat for you. Add asparagus, carrots and spaghetti sauce to heated oil and cook until the vegetables are soft. If needed, add a little water then push the veggies aside to make room for the eggs. Crack each egg directly into the pot and allow them to cook until the whites are set and the yolks are still runny. Season with salt and pepper and serve. Feel free to experiment by switching up the vegetable and spices to suit your preferences– after all, that’s the best part of cooking!

Prepare the salad by tossing together some the bacon, tomatoes, chunks of the bread and salad leaves. Drizzle on some Caesar dressing and top with poached eggs.

8. Deep Fried Poached Egg Over Heirloom Tomato

“Absolutely divine!!” marixime

Some might feel the poaching method in this dish is easier to master. Have a bowl of iced water and pan lined with paper towels ready. Boil some water, remove the pot from the heat, add the eggs, cover the pot and set it aside for three minutes. Carefully remove the eggs and place them in the iced water before transferring them to the paper towels. Set up an “assembly line” of flour in a shallow dish, beaten eggs in a bowl and a bowl of panko seasoned with salt and pepper.

Ahh- the crockpot! A wonderful way to prepare delicious and healthy meals for your family while saving on energy, time and money. Your crockpot or slow cooker uses much less electricity than a conventional electric oven. Plus, while it is cooking, you have time to go do other important things – like spending quality time with family members. Foods cooked in your crockpot are more nutritious since they retain more of their vitamins and minerals than when cooked by other methods such as frying and boiling.
Here are 10 awesome recipes you can prepare in your crockpot. Hopefully, once you try these, you’ll be inspired to pull out your handy slow cooker more often!
