Cheesy Poached Eggs

Submitted by: Suzanne McMinn on June 20, 2010

Not your ordinary poached eggs–these eggs are poached in a cheesy-milk mixture and put to bed on a thick, toasted slice of homemade bread.

Servings: 4   Prep Time: 15 minutes   Cook Time: 5 minutes  

Ingredients

toasted, thick-sliced homemade bread
2 tablespoons butter
4 eggs
1 cup shredded Cheddar or Swiss
6 ounces cream cheese
1 cup milk


Directions

Toast bread slices. Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add cheeses and milk. Stir till melted. Crack eggs one at a time in a small cup then pour into the cheese/milk mixture in the pan. Cook, covered, three to five minutes depending on how you like your eggs. Using a spoon, lift each poached egg from the pan and place on top of a toasted slice. Top with more cheese mixture from the pan and sprinkle on coarse ground black pepper and/or chives.
