Poached Egg Parmesan

The Effrens have gotten very creative with eggs over the years. We will put a fried egg on almost anything so we can call it breakfast. But we do have some go to egg dishes that are always extraordinary and this is one of them. Here is our fathers day breakfast Mom and I made for Dad this morning, enjoyed outside on the back deck before a nice round of golf.


-3 slices whole wheat toast
-3 cups fresh spinach
-3 eggs
-1 cup leftover tomato sauce
-Parmesan cheese
-Salt & pepper

-Bring water to a low boil in a shallow sauté pan. Using a spoon mix the water in a circular direction. Add eggs one at a time. (If you add a dash of vinegar it will also help prevent the eggs from sticking)
-Heat up tomato sauce in microwave.
-When eggs are cooked to your liking take out of the water with a slotted spoon and set aside. We usually cook them easy so they’ll need a few minutes. If you pick them up in your spoon and give it a light shake you’ll be able to see if they are done enough for you.
-Add spinach to the same water and let cook 1-2 minutes. Strain the spinach and then place on top of toast.
-Place egg on top of the spinach. Then add a few spoonfuls of tomato sauce.
-Sprinkle with parmesan, salt and pepper.
-Cut the egg open with your fork and dig in.
