Instead of asking your guests how they would like their eggs in the morning, we have a couple of great recipes here which you can try out, that will truly knock their socks off. Eggs can be used in an enormous array of meals and dishes, but it is for breakfast that they are most commonly used. Instead of simply frying up an egg and asking your guest if they like it sunny side up or over-easy, these are some better options which will really show them that you want them to start their day right.
Poaching eggs is something that so many people get wrong, but the reality is that it is nowhere near as hard as you think. I like to use the method which chef Adam Seger talks about, using white wine vinegar. Boil your water and when it is boiled add some white wine vinegar, just a dash. Spin the water slowly and crack your egg in the center, put the lid on and take off the heat, 6 minutes later you’ll have a perfect egg. The best way to serve this is on an English muffin, with some tasty hollandaise sauce, a delicious start to the day.
Eggs in the Clouds
Baked eggs are really a game changer here and this recipe will be a real treat for your guests. Separate the white from the yolk and set the yolk aside. Preheat the oven to 180 and then whisk your whites until they form soft peaks, and a dash of chives and some crispy bacon to your whites, and then place them on an oven try in a large circular shape. Bake the egg white for 15 minutes before you take it out and add the yolk to the top of the raised whites. Put this back in the oven for a further 5 minutes, and then take the eggs out and serve with crusty bread.
Eggs and Soldiers
Not all food options have to be haute cuisine and you will find that sometimes the simpler the option, the better the result. For example this childhood classic is a great way for you to start the day. Place the egg into cold water and allow it to boil, once boiling, leave your eggs in the water for 6 minutes and then remove from the pan. Place the egg in an egg cup and cut the top off the egg, you should have a gooey yolk and a firm egg. For the soldiers you can use any bread that you like, but sourdough is often the best choice here. Cut the bread into strips which can then be dipped into the egg, and there you have it, a delicious breakfast which conjures up memories of being young.
These are some great recipes which you can use for your guests when they come to stay.
