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.

  3. 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.
