Poached Eggs over Spinach

The concept of this blog is to work with what you have. I don't have time to go shopping everyday for specific items so I buy a bunch of stuff and make up dishes based on what needs to be eaten before it spoils. This carbless breakfast was great. I sauteed some spinach then squeezed out all of the excess water. I then poached some eggs (see fool proof method below). I still had a small amount of the tomatillo hot pepper salsa, so I softened a big spoon a cream cheese in the microwave and mixed it half and half with the salsa. I topped the eggs and spinach with the sauce and sprinkled some paprika over the whole thing. Love Breakfast

Foolproof poached eggs - bring a large pot of water to a boil. Once boiling add some salt and 2 teaspoons of white vinegar (you can use any vinegar but the less taste the better). The vinegar is crucial to success. Next crack the egg into an oiled laddle. Slowly lower the laddle into the boiling water, hold it for 10 seconds and then turn the laddel over dropping the egg into the water. Repeat dropping each egg in a different location (preferably in a circle so you know which is done first. Wait 3 to 4 minutes then take a slotted spoon and start retrieving the eggs in the order you put them in. Shake off the excess water or blot with a paper towel. Yum!
