Poached Eggs Mytilene

Share on:

I learned this no-fail poached egg recipe from a Greek chef I worked with who grew up in Mytilene. He ate this for breakfast just about every morning and it reminds him of his mother to this day.

I make it for breakfast pretty frequently and it always gives me a good start to my day. I recommend it for you and your family. It can be served with potatoes, toast, milk, juice, etc. to complete a good breakfast.



Step: 1

Combine lemon juice and oil in a small serving bowl; whisk to combine.

Step: 2

Add water and vinegar to a medium saute pan or small saucepan and bring to a slow boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low. Crack 1 egg into a small bowl, being careful not to break the yolk. Gently slip egg into the simmering water, holding the bowl just above the surface of water. Repeat with the remaining egg. Cook eggs until the whites are firm and the yolks are lightly cooked outside, but liquid inside, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove the eggs from the water with a slotted spoon, and place into a serving bowl.

Step: 3

Break the yolks with a fork and drizzle with lemon juice mixture. Stir yolks twice; season with salt and pepper.

Eating best breakfast to continue the day has become a good habit. It’s a great way to start my day off healthfully. The sugar hit from the fruit wakes me up and bring me energy to make on the morning. Sugar is often vilified as the evil of all disease, but fruit is also loaded with fibre, which is great for your digestive system and helps keep you feel full all day , and less likely grab a snack out of the street food before break .

Making fruit a at 7.00 clock habit is easy . Simply put the fruit in your fridge next to the sweet drink or on the table next to your cereal pan , or beside your coffee maker or tea kettle — about anywhere where you’ll find it. Before you eating the rest of your food , eat your fruit. If you’re not normally a breakfast person.
