Basted Egg with Sherry Tomatoes and Potato-Onion Puree

This is a little play on traditional sunny side up eggs and breakfast potatoes. It takes about 10 minutes, feeds one and costs $3.

I used the potato onion puree from the previous recipe on the blog. I cut and pasted here just for reference. I also made a basted egg. This is an egg that is cooked in a saute pan with about and inch of water. You have to continuously "baste" the egg with the excess water in the pan using a tablespoon. Slowly but surely the top of the egg cooks and becomes a perfect cross between poached and sunny side up. I diced some tomatoes and tossed them with sherry vinegar and some fresh parsley. Enjoy!

Organic Potato-Onion Puree
4 small organic yukon gold potatoes, medium diced
1 medium organic vidallia onion, medium diced
5-6 cloves of organic garlic, halved
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons cream
2 tablespoon of olive oil
1 tablespoon cream cheese

Put the potatoes, onions and garlic in cold water in a medium pot. Start on medium high heat and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and let cook until potatoes are fork tender. Strain the water off and place in a large food processor or blender. Add butter, oil, cream, cream cheese, and salt & white pepper. Puree until smooth. Add more olive oil as necessary to get a smooth velvety texture.
