Kels and I woke up and we wanted eggs. But we wanted so many different types of eggs, that it was decided that this morning would be known as “eggapalooza.” We’re talking sunny side up, fried, scrambled, and poached. We wanted them all. My favorite creation from the morning was simple, elegant, yet utterly delicious and extremely rich. Seared onions are topped with a fluffy poached egg, that is finished with shredded mozzarella cheese and a little chili powder. The onions were a little crispy and happily sopped up the runny goodness of the yolk. SO simple, yet so pretty, easy, and mouthwateringly divine. Also, it takes only about 10 minutes to prepare, so yes, try it now.
Poached Egg with Mozzarella over Seared Onions
1/4 cup diced viadlia onion
1 tsp white vinegar
1 handful shredded mozzarella cheese
sprinkle of salt
sprinkle of chili powder
Recipe: Drizzle some olive oil in a skillet and heat until smoking. It should be very hot. Flash sear the onions, for about 3 minutes, so they are browned but still maintain their bite. Put them in the bottom of a ramekin.
Meanwhile, poach your egg. Heat a saucepan full of water and add the vinegar. Bring until almost boiling, but make sure not to let it boil. Crack the egg into the water and using a slotted spoon gently push the whites over the yolk. Let cook until the egg floats to the top, about 4 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and put over onions. Top with shredded cheese and sprinkle of salt and chili powder.
Put under the broiler for about 2 minutes, until the cheese is melted and it starts to brown.
Eat with a good piece of bread and enjoy !
