Poached Eggs On Whole Grain Bread


    • Water
    • 2 eggs
    • 1 slice whole grain bread
    • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar or other vinegar
    • A pinch of sea salt
    • A pinch of black pepper


    Bring about two inches of water to a boil in a small pot. Reduce flame to medium-low, water should barely simmer. Add 1 teaspoon vinegar.

    Crack egg into a small bowl. Drop eggs, one at a time, into the water. After a minute, gently turn eggs over with a rubber spatula.

    Cook 2 minutes for thin, runny egg; 3 minutes for firmer egg; 4 minutes for fully poached egg.

    Remove from the water with a slotted spoon, dabbing under the spoon with a paper towel to remove excess water. Gently place eggs on top of whole grain toast. Season with sea salt and pepper to taste.
