What do you do with your poached eggs?

We love poached eggs, too. Fave is what I dubbed Eggs Benedict Arnold--for the missing hollandaise ;-)

Anyhow, it's a poached egg on a well-buttered English muffin half, toast, or even a crab cake, topped w/a squeeze of fresh lemon and s&p. Sometimes put some ham on the muffin/toast before the egg. But my fave versions use Ezekial sprouted grain English muffin half or rye toast. Rye bread is large, so the hubster & I split one slice. We had that for breakfast yesterday.

I also like a poached egg on my current version of huevos rancheros--seasoned black beans, poached egg, Rotel (canned diced tomatoes & chilies), poached egg, and a little shredded Mexican blend cheese.

I don't worry about eating eggs. I average maybe 3/week. I often go a month with no eggs whatsoever; other months with a couple of quiches or lots of poached eggs or omelets.

As a child and young adult, I was starving when I woke up in the morning. But I remember the first time I went out for brunch and couldn't finish a 3-egg omelet (in my mid to late 40s). In my 60s, t seldom want more than 1 egg, even as an onelet or (small) serving of quiche. If it weren't for the hubster, at nearly 70 I'd be content with just a cup of coffee many mornings, or a late brunch instead of lunch.
