Beautiful Food


I just had to share this recipe for perfect poached eggs, created by Trissalicious, because they’re just so gorgeous!

This may seem like the long way round to making poached eggs for breakfast (they cook in their shells at a very low heat for 43 minutes), but believe me, they’re worth it!  Start them cooking and go have a long, lazy bath… or if you’re energetic in the mornings, go for a jog… and when you get back, your perfect poached eggs will be ready.  When you crack the top off your egg and slide it out onto your toast, it seems kind of magical…

Isn’t that beautiful?

And if you want hollandaise sauce on top, that only takes 8 minutes – just leave the eggs in their shells to stay warm while you make it.

(Yes, I did have butter with these – sometimes I give in to my butter craving!)

I had these for breakfast with a great big glass of fresh orange juice – 2 peeled oranges and a handful of ice whizzed up in the Thermomix on speed 10 for 1 minute… yum

“Enchant, stay beautiful and graceful, 

but do this, eat well. 

Bring the same consideration 

to the preparation of your food 

as you devote to your appearance. 

Let your dinner be a poem, 

like your dress.” 


Charles Pierre Monselet, French author (1825-1888)

    Hi Quirky – I am honored to be on your list of mouth-watering food images with my slow-cooked ribs. Thank you! And I’m all in favor of this lovely S L O W cooked egg too. The idea of taking a morning bath while cooking these suits me just fine. I look forward to trying these… with butter, of course 😉
