There aren’t many meals packed with protein and fulfilling as anything made with eggs. These little rascals had a setback in the past, when the medical guru’s targeted them as somewhat unhealthy for your diet. As anything in life, eggs should be eaten in moderation, especially if you have medical conditions that could be impacted by eating one or more of them daily. Furthermore, is always important to consult with your doctor to ensure that you are consuming the specific number of eggs daily or weekly to follow a healthy diet.
Approximate Prep and Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Approximate Cost: $5.54 or $2.77 per serving
Difficulty Level: X Easy ____ Intermediate ____ Advanced
4 large eggs (.64)
4 slices of Smoked Salmon ($3.00)
2 Toast (.20)
6 Cherry tomatoes (.40)
2 tsp. Chives or scallions (.20)
2 tsp. Tzatziki Sauce (.25)
Half a lemon (.25)
Salt and pepper to taste (0)
4 slices of whole grain bread (.60)
Spray the poaching molds with cooking oil. Add salt and vinegar to a poaching pot with boiling water.
Crack one egg into each compartment, reduce the heat and cover.
Simmer for about 4-5 minutes, or until the egg whites have set, and the yolk still looks runny. (If your family likes them well-cooked, let them cook over 5 minutes.) (I prefer to serve one soft and one hard) (Remember to spoon the eggs out of the molds carefully, since they will still have some hot water.)
While the eggs cook, assemble your plates with toast, salmon, egg, Tzatziki, salt and lemon juice to taste.
