What do you need?

Bread:

  • Good sourdough bread slices, they are heartier and sturdier than regular toast. And they taste so much better.

Tomatoes:

  • About 10-15 cherry tomatoes depending on size. You can eyeball how many you will need for one slice of bread. It also depends on how large the slice is, our German bread slices are pretty large.
  • You can take only one sort of tomatoes or several different kinds.

Balsamic vinegar, garlic, olive oil, fresh basil.

Which eggs are best for poaching?

  • Very fresh eggs.
  • The white of fresh eggs is firmer and they will hold their shape better during poaching.
  • If you don’t know how fresh the eggs are, put them one by one it in a glass of water. If they lie horizontally at the bottom, they are very fresh, if they float or stand on end they are not that fresh.

How to poach an egg?

  • Fill a pan with water and bring it to a boil.
  • Add a splash of vinegar.
  • Break the eggs into two separate small cups.
  • Turn the heat to very low. Stir the water to create a whirlpool. This will help the egg whites wrap around the yolk. 
  • Carefully let the eggs slide into the water.
  • Simmer (without allowing the water to boil again) for 3 to 4 minutes, depending on the size of the eggs and the way you like to eat them.
  • I prefer to let my eggs for 4 minutes in the water and if they are larger than usual about 4 ½ minutes.
  • Remove the eggs with a slotted spoon and place them on kitchen paper. Let drain for a moment and pat them dry very gently.
  • Lift carefully with a spatula and place them on top of the toast.
