One of the perplexing aspects of living in S.E. Asia is that breakfast seems to be the “forgotten meal.” In locations where lunches, snacks and dinners are extrardinarily good, finding a “proper” breakfast can be a bit of challenge… For those who like to tackle such challenges head-on in their own kitchen, we provide some options…
One of my favourites to start a day is poached eggs but with a touch of class to dress them up. Traditional Hollandaise sauce is a mission for a solo breakfast but here is a simple alterative that produces a tasty and attractive meal… Poaching an egg is a task fraught with great mystery and uncertainty – mine always seemed to disintegrate into shapeless gooey blobs no matter what I tried! The recommended dash of vinegar only served to make them even less visually appealing…. but here’s my solution.
Take two small bowls, and cover these with plastic food wrap, pushing the plastic into the bottom and leaving 3 – 4 inches of overlap. Break an egg into each bowl, pull the edges of the plastic up and fold together tightly so no egg can escape.
Ok, so the Hollandaise sauce would have been nice but it adds significantly to the preparation time and is really only worth the effort if you’ve got company that appreciates your culinary genius… This gives your otherwise plain poached eggs a flavour-filled and appetising variation in less than 10 minutes!
