I grew up eating in my mother’s luncheonette and my favorite way she prepared my eggs were poached. This is a healthy option since no fat is added when cooking. The easiest way to make this is with an egg poacher, but you can easily make them without as I did here following these simple steps.

My mantra is cooking doesn’t have to be complicated, if you use quality ingredients, you will achieve great results. I prefer to cook with whatever fresh vegetables are in season and I keep my kitchen stocked with good olive oils, cheeses and spices.

  1. This made me feel like I was dining at an upscale restaurant for brunch! I couldn’t believe how simple this was to put together. Poached eggs have always intimidated me a bit, but the instructions were easy to follow and yielded a perfectly poached egg with a beautifully velvety yolk! I added some prosciutto to mine, because I had some left over from earlier in the week. Really wonderful, thank you.

  2. Ijust poached my first egg EVER!!!! I had asparagus, eggs and grated parmesan….so I went for it. So good!!! I had a side serving of hashbrowns that I browned in olive oil for my daily serving of 'good oil'. I love your site!!! I tell all my WW friends and anybody else looking to eat healthy. Your photos are fabulous too!!!! Thanks Gina!

  3. Having recently stumbled upon this amazing blog (thank you Gina!!), I prepared this for breakfast this morning. Recipe was easy to modify for one. Only had grated parm in the fridge, so that is what I used. Added one slice of whole wheat toast and a few strawberries. Visually appealing, but tasted even better. LOVE eggs, and a hearty breakfast is a major splurge for me. This will be a life saver!!

  4. This reminds me of my favourite lunch … leftover veggies lightly sautee'd with an egg poached on top.

  5. Hey Gina! It was so nice meeting you this weekend 🙂 I'm glad I found your blog too – I'm excited to start reading! I hope you had a safe flight home.

    Love it! This is also great over some whole wheat pasta, the yolk serves as a bit of sauce.

  8. Gosh! I thought I could never enjoy both asparagus and egg at the same time!

  9. Love this recipe and have it all the time. It's so fresh and tasty. If you are going to be bad, have a tiny little bit of hollandaise dressing on it too 😉

  10. Every Saturday we go to a local restaurant where I have poached eggs and an English Muffin (dark & dry) with mixed fruit jelly. I look forward to this every week. Good hot coffee, eggs done just right, friendly waitresses. and just six points. Is it Saturday yet?

    I'll remember this for next year, when asparagus is in season again. I love poached eggs on anything.

    I've seen this recipe before and keep meaning to try it! Soo yummy and healthy! I love your mantra and couldn't agree w you more! Your pic is so beautiful. I hated eggs for some reason until just a few years ago. Now the only way I like my eggs are poached! Weird now that I think about it….

  16. i just discovered the wonder of a poached egg. I enjoyed my poached eggs on top of a bed of hashbrowned potatoes. kind of magnificent!
