Sunday mornings are the best mornings of the entire week. It’s the start of the new week ahead and the end of the weekend. For us, we either have a working Sunday or a relaxing Sunday. Working Sundays include a nice little breakfast followed by a day tending the garden and the house. Relaxing Sundays start off with a nice family breakfast followed by a bike ride,TV, reading, homework, games, etc. But no matter what kind of Sunday it is(or day of the week), it’s always nice to have a nice breakfast.So here is our favorite of all,a poached egg on top of baked greek yogurt.
This concoction is a Martha Steward’s idea that pleases people of all ages. When all the ingredients are assembled on top of each other, it looks like it’s worth a million bucks.The texture of the baked yogurt reminds D of the fromage blanc she used to eat in France. S surprised her on Mother’s Day with this special and colorful brunch special.
Sunday Morning Egg Special
- 2 cups plain nonfat Greek yogurt
- 3 tablespoons thinly sliced scallions
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1 teaspoon coarse salt
- Freshly ground pepper
- 4 large eggs
- 1 bunch watercress(we used arugula), torn into small sprigs
- 1/4 cup thinly sliced cherry tomatoes
- 1/4 teaspoon paprika
- 4 slices whole-grain bread ( we used french baguette), toasted
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Stir together yogurt, 2 tablespoons scallions, the garlic, salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper in a bowl. Spoon 1/2 cup yogurt mixture into each of four 6-ounce ovenproof dishes. Place on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake until yogurt is just firm, 10 to 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, fill a large straight-sided skillet with 1 inch water. Bring to a simmer over medium-low heat. Working quickly, crack each egg into a small cup, and gently slide egg into water. Simmer until whites are opaque but yolks are still runny, 2 to 3 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the eggs to a plate lined with paper towels, and let drain.
Place 1 egg on top of each baked yogurt. Top with watercress, tomatoes, and remaining tablespoon scallions. Sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon pepper and the paprika. Serve immediately with toast.
