New Year’s Morning Breakfast

poached eggs on toast

A great way to start the New Year off is with a light but filling breakfast.  Poached eggs on whole wheat.  Yum!

I feel like those women on the Activia commercials.  During the holidays I don’t seem to eat as routinely and welcome the quiet beginning of a new year.

Poaching eggs:

Three cups water
One Tbls. vinegar
New eggs aka fresh but only if you have chickens. Old eggs definitely don’t work.

Bring the water and vinegar to a boil. Break an egg into a small bowl and then slide the egg into the boiling water. While counting to 10, break another egg into the bowl and on the count of 10 slide the egg into the water. Boil for two minutes. After removing one egg, count to 10 and remove the other egg.


2 ounces orange juice
1/2 ounce triple sec

Pour juice and triple sec into a champagne flute and the top with champagne. One can make this without triple sec. I happen to run out of it and just used the orange juice by itself with the champagne. It was satisfactory.

Cheers to a new beginning.

    Have not ever poached an egg believe it or not. I always assumed it was too difficult. You have inspired me to try. I’ll have to ignore the part about the chickens and hope for the best. Nice menu though for New Years.
