Poached Eggs With Mushroom and Tomato

(Serves 4)

  • 2 teaspoons white vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon olive oil

  • 2 medium tomatoes, each sliced into 4 rounds

  • Kosher salt and black pepper

  • 1 pound assorted mushrooms, sliced

  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves

  • 8 large eggs

  • 4 slices country bread, toasted

  • 1 ounce Parmesan, shaved

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives

Add vinegar and 3 inches of water to a deep skillet, and bring to a gentle simmer. Meanwhile, in another skillet add 1 teaspoon of oil and place on medium-high heat. Add tomatoes seasoned with 1/4 teaspoon each of salt and pepper and cook 1-2 minutes per side until just tender. Transfer to a plate.

Add remaining tablespoon of oil to the skillet and add mushrooms with thyme, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Toss until golden and tender, 6-7 minutes.

Crack 4 eggs into separate custard cups and slide each gently into the simmering water in the deep skillet. Cook for 2-3 minutes for slightly runny yolks and remove with a slotted spoon. Repeat with the next 4 eggs.

Top bread with tomatoes, mushrooms, eggs, Parmesan, and salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle with chives.
