If you love a good poached egg then you are not going to regret reading this. A total game changer as far as poaching eggs is concerned. The other day I noticed Mr Chardy cracking some eggs into a bowl of water. I asked him what the hell he was doing to which he replied: ” This is how Miss Gabby poaches her eggs”…. so here you are my friends…..
Miss Gabby’s College Eggs
Miss Gabby is our wonderful Governess who also cuts a mean figure in the culinary world. At only 21 she is wise beyond her years and that young lady can and will cook. This is just one of her fabulous inventions. Well I don’t know anyone else who cooks their eggs like this so I am letting her claim this one, and if this is how you have been cooking your eggs – well done, I like it.
This is what you do:
- Place about 2 cups of hot tap water into a bowl
- Crack 2 eggs into bowl (or how ever many you like really, you might just need to cook for a bit longer if you have more than 2 eggs in bowl)
- Put in microwave on high for 2 minutes (my microwave is 1000w)
- Remove/drain with large draining spoon
This whole breakfast dish was prepared in under 5 minutes….how easy is that! I am a total convert to the microwaved poaching. Oh and if you are doing Weight Watchers it is only a 5 point breakfast (incl bit of butter in the mushrooms) even better!
How was your weekend? we went to a farewell party for some good friends. It was a surprise and so much fun. It also involved a fair amount of driving for everyone who attended. People from all over the NT really. A few families flew in and the rest drove for many hours. It took us 7 hours and we didn’t go through one single town, a couple of roadhouses, but no towns. I think we spent more time in the car than we did at the party. Was well worth it though, such a fun night and we wish our friends all the best on their new adventure.
Do you have any hot tips like this? How do you poach your eggs?
Did you do some travelling on the weekend?
