The journey of our BMO (Bacon, Mushroom and Onion) friends continues, as they venture to where many toasts have gone before! It’s “An egg in hot water! Caught between a runny yolk and fresh toasted country bread!!” – A soft poached egg with runny yolk, perched on top of a bacon, onion, and mushroom mixture, with a nice thick slice of toasted country bread below.
I used a slice of homemade country bread for this recipe, but a thick slice of sourdough from your favorite bakery, or any form of thick crusty bread would work well here.
In all honesty, the egg in this photo was the 3rd egg I used. I made the mistake of getting eggs that were imported, and I think that affected the tightness of the whites, resulting in yolk-white separation =(
After making “Separation Egg Soup” for 2 tries, I gave up and used the cling film method, which I learned from Jamie Oliver. What isn’t mentioned in the video, is that this method works great when your eggs aren’t the freshest.
For the easiest poached eggs, use a sous vide machine (if you want to get fancy), and the fresher you get your eggs, the better.
Bacon and Mushrooms with Poached Egg on Toast
A savory trio of Bacon, Mushrooms, and Onions with a Poached Egg on top of toasted country bread, with a gooey poached egg that is its own sauce.
- 3 tbsp BMO mix refer to Bacon, Mushroom and Onion Mix Recipe
- 1 whole egg poached
- 1 tsp italian or english parsley washed and chopped
- 1 slice crusty bread thick sliced, country or sourdough preferred
- salt and black pepper season to taste
- 1 tbsp olive oil extra virgin
If using oven to toast bread, preheat oven to 350 degrees F/ 180 degrees C. Place bread in oven, and toast for 10 minutes until crisp and browned on the outside.
In a small frying pan, reheat BMO mix.
In a separate pot with simmering water, cook poached egg according to instructions in link video above.
To serve, place toast on a serving plate, drizzle with olive oil. Layer BMO mix on top of bread, followed by poached egg on top.
Season with additional salt and pepper as required, and garnish with parsley.
- If using a toaster to toast bread, toast bread as the last step, as it will only take 2-3 minutes.
- I will not share the poached egg technique here (as there are many youtube videos available). But if a poached egg seems like too much trouble, you may scramble the eggs with the BMO mix - still very tasty.
The BMO trio soldiers on, as the forces of the 12x Eggs Pack are relentless! Having lost so many brethren to the ruthless trio, and an expiry date on them looming, the eggs have no choice but to attack! It is an all out assault on the BMO trio tomorrow! In “The LOADED Frittata“.
