My favorite dishes to make with poached eggs are savory. Poached eggs are super quick to make, nutritious, and egg pairs with pretty much everything. I love them with polenta, dark leafy greens, and a little salt and pepper. Poached eggs are amazing on potatoes gratin or Spanish Tortilla de patata (if you are scratching your head, think of layers and layers of thinly sliced potatoes and caramelized onions.)
One of my other favorite quick meals is fresh pasta, pesto, and a poached egg. Any time you open up a poached egg and allow the yolk to flow out like lava you are guaranteed creaminess. For someone who doesn’t eat much dairy, this is the answer to a lot of prayers. In the picture, I am using store bought Artichoke Lemon pesto, but arugula, basil, chard, whatever pesto you choose, even tomato sauce will be beautiful with fresh pasta and a poached egg. You will be amazed! Sub out pasta for polenta or crusty French bread and you are still going to have a winner. I even eat a poached egg on grilled cheese with romesco sauce occasionally. Don’t’ knock it until you try it. My mouth is watering.
