Breakfast feeling: Poached eggs

The best time for eating eggs is in the morning, they say, and is enough to take a peek on the internet to find a great number of recipes where the humble egg is the main character.
We both love eating eggs and I’ve always tried to find healthy egg recipes other than frying them.
To poach an egg may appear a bit difficult in theory and in the beginning, but once you try it, things get more and more simple especially that there is nothing greater than knowing you cooked (and had) a healthier breakfast 🙂

What you need:
*a medium pan for boiling water
*a frying pan
*2 eggs
*2 slices of bread
*some smoked (or plain) grated cheese

How to do it

1. Fill the pan with water and bring it to boil. When it starts to boil reduce the heat, let the water simmer and ad some salt and vinegar.
2. Crack an egg in a glass and let it slip slowly into the water. Let it boil there for about 3 minutes, but if you like your eggs harder, let it in boil for about 5 minutes.

3.Take the egg out and put it in cold water to stop it from boiling. Do the same with the other egg.
4. In a frying pan put the half quantity of grated cheese and add one slice of bread over. Let the cheese melt and stick to the bread, then turn the slice on the other side. Let it brown a little and then add one egg on top of it. Do the same with the other slice
5. Sprinkle some salt, pepper and thyme on the eggs and then add some vegetables in the plate for more color.
And…that’s it!
