I like a poached egg plonked, all by itself, on a piece of toast but there are all sorts of ways to serve them.
You can use toast, or muffins, grilled ciabatta, whatever you think tastes best.
Layer the toast with a nice slice of prosciutto, or smoked salmon, or soft cheese. Poach the egg and lay it gently on top. Garnish with baby spinach or flat leaf parsley.
- A note about the vinegar. Vinegar is dropped into the water to make the eggwhite set instantly around the yolk, but I swear that I can taste the vinegar. I prefer not to use it myself.
