Poached Eggs and Turkey Bacon

This is a fun and easy breakfast!  It’s also pretty quick, which makes it ideal for those mornings when you’re feeling a bit lazy but want something different.

Ingredients Used:

  • 4 Eggs
  • 2 pieces Trader Joe’s Uncured Turkey Bacon (cooked)
  • 1/2 Trader Joe’s Brown Rice Tortilla
  • Pinch of Quattro Formaggio Cheese
  • Trader Joe’s Everyday Seasoning
  • Salt
  • Garlic powder
  • Trader Joe’s Extra Virgin Olive Oil Spray

I have a nifty little egg poacher which makes this super easy.  I suppose that if you don’t have this cool pan you can always do it the old fashioned way, but why would you want to do that when you can use an awesome kitchen gadget! (And I’ll admit, I have zero experience doing it the old fashioned way)

Eggs in poaching cupsFirst I take the cups out of the pan and slightly spray  them with the olive oil spray to facilitate the eggs sliding out of the cups when they are done. Fill the bottom of the pan with water and bring to a boil. After I crack an egg into one of the cups, I season with some garlic powder, Everyday seasoning and grind a little salt from my salt mill all on top of the egg.

At this point, I cut a tortilla into 1/4ths and place it into the toaster over.  Toast to your taste, careful though, these guys burn pretty quickly!  Next, put the cups into the pan and put the lid on.  Depending on how runny you like your eggs, cook from between 3 to 8 minutes.  Shani and I like ours more well done, so I usually start checking the middles at about 6 minutes.  When the eggs are almost done, add a pinch of cheese to each egg and let that melt.

I like to cut the bacon into thinner strips.  Take a 1/4th of the toasted tortilla, add bacon and eggs.  Presto! You’re done.  If I wasn’t trying to look like an Athleta Girl, Trader Joe’s has a nice pre-made Hollandaise sauce you could add.  You could also make your own, but I’ll save that for another day.

What’s your favorite quick way to make eggs?
