Eggs Arnie

So this is a play on words but I share a sir name with a famous Amercian traitor Benedict…..I love Eggs Benny but it usually has ham, bacon, or salmon. I have been given Arnie as a nick name as a result of my sweet boyfriend’s compulsion to nick name anything that moves, so this is Eggs Arnie. Serves one.


Eggs Arnie

  • 2 free range eggs
  • 1 tsp of vinegar
  • 1 english muffin (or 2 crumpets, or 1 biscuit split)
  • a few slices of cheese (my fav is dill havarti, I had old cheddar on hand)
  • greenery (spinach or mixed greens)
  • roasted red peppers ( or roasted tomato, olives, sauteed mushrooms)
  • sauce ( I concocted something but Hollandaise, Maltaise or even Bechamel sauce is amazing)
  • salt and pepper to taste

Method

In a pan a few inches deep add 2 inches of water and 1 tsp of vinegar (no salt!). Heat over high to a boil.

Make sauce. The one I made consisted of 2 tbsp prepared ranch dressing, 1/2-1 tsp lemon zest, 1 clove of garlic grated, 1 tsp of cream cheese and 1 tsp of mayo combined until smooth.

Prepare all the ingredients. Split the English muffin and place in toaster. Prepare the veggies and cheese.

Once the water comes to a boil, toast the English muffin then cook eggs by dropping them gently into the water.TIP> Most people recommend to stir the water first to reduce the bubbling action temporarily, and also the crack the eggs into a cup and use the cup to transfer the egg to the water. Reduce heat to medium high. Depending on how you like your eggs 3 minutes for runny eggs, 4 minutes for medium and 5 minutes it you like the egg cooked completely through.

Assembly… English muffin, cheese, greenery, peppers, egg, sauce then pepper…. eat!
