The Daring Cooks December 2010 Challenge: Poach to Perfection!

Jenn and Jill have challenged The Daring Cooks to learn to perfect the technique of poaching an egg. They chose Eggs Benedict recipe from Alton Brown, Oeufs en Meurette from Cooking with Wine by Anne Willan, and Homemade Sundried Tomato & Pine Nut Seitan Sausages (poached) courtesy of Trudy of Veggie num num.

So happy to be able to participate in this month’s challenge.  I have missed my Daring Kitchen challenges so much!  Inspired by fellow Daring Kitchen participant, Audax – I decided to make homemade English muffins.  It was easy AND worth it!  The recipe is from Alton Brown and can be found here:  http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/english-muffins-recipe/index.html

Because I’m trying to lose baby weight we decided that hollandaise sauce might not be the best choice for our dinner.  We used the homemade English muffins, turkey bacon and a roasted red pepper, garlic & eggplant in place of the hollandaise.  I will always make my own muffins going forward.  I have enjoyed poached eggs several times since my first attempt and they may just be my new favorite way to enjoy them!

Merry Christmas everyone and Happy New Year!!
