“Poach an egg” should be added to my list from yesterday.
I’m fairly certain that my water wasn’t hot enough. There’s a fine line between “simmer” and “boil.”
Regardless – the stack was delicious and super simple. And instead of an egg, I paired some yogurt on the side for a little protein.
I missed the egg but it wasn’t like I didn’t try.
A tomato is sliced and then layered with avocado slices. Instead of olive tapenade, I simply chopped up a few olives and arranged them on the stack. A hefty sprinkle pepper and salt rounded out the plate along with a couple of sliced cherry tomatoes and a splash of balsamic vinegar.
I honestly don’t know how a poached egg would have balanced on top – that last tomato was sliding quite a bit.
Every time I see or hear about a poached egg, I tell myself that I’m going to master that technique in the kitchen. And after my “fail” with this dinner, more than ever do I want to learn.
I received a few tips including salt the water and add vinegar, so wish me luck!
