How to make Poached Egg Party Plate
Trend topping poached eggs are complementing more meals than ever before. For years eggs were getting a bad reputation because of their high cholesterol content. Today, research shows that one egg per day does not increase the risk of heart disease in healthy individuals. For those who have diabetes and heart disease, it is smart to limit your egg consumption to no more than three per week. Eggs are a good source of protein and vitamins A, B, and D. They also contain other nutrients like lutein, zeaxanthin, and choline, that promote optimal brain, nerve, and eye health.
Choose high fiber whole grain bread and nutrient-rich vegetables to accompany your poached egg. They bring more nutritional value to your meal compared to ham, cheese, or white toast. We decorated our poached egg with peppery arugula, creamy avocado, and sweet cherry tomatoes. Make this recipe your own and use whatever vegetables you have on hand. Replace high-fat sauces like hollandaise for a healthier option like a balsamic glaze or honey Dijon mustard. Not sure of how to poach an egg?
