Mushrooms with Poached Eggs and Crusty Bread

Before we get started, it is important to learn how to poach an egg. I had to learn a year or two back, and I cannot go back to ife before I knew how to do such a fabulous thing like poaching eggs. So live a full, complete life and learn this necessary life skill my friends, I implore you! – – How to Poach an Egg from the Kitchn

There are not many things in life I enjoy more than a poached egg, bread and mushrooms. The earthy and simple flavors of this vegetable adds to a simple. balanced, perfect breakfast. I am such a fan of breakfasts that I would eat this dish anytime and for any meal. The crustier theĀ  bread, the better in this situation. The nooks and crannies of it will absorb the sauce of the paoched egg, and it will be a flavor explosion in your mouth.

Serves 2


2 cups mushrooms, washed, rubbed dry and chopped, sauteed in olive oil for 5-8 minutes on medium heat until soft, with a couple teaspoons of olive oil

2 tablespoons scallions, chopped

1 teaspoon of fresh herbs of your liking, chopped

4 eggs, poached

1/4-1/2 a crusty loaf of french bread, as desired


Toast your bread if desired. Set some butter out on the table. Use the nice plates. Top sauteed mushrooms with scallions. fresh herbs of your liking, and salt and pepper. Place mushrooms on french bread slices and top with poached egg. Use a fork or your fingers and devour. The simple flavors of this dish are immensely satisfying.

Lemon and Garlic Brussel Sprouts

This is a simple yet flavorful dish that really showcases the veggies! Great for any veggie lover, or you can make someone a veggie convert with this simple roasting method.


4 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

1 tablespoon minced garlic, I used the jar variety that I had on hand but fresh would be amazing in this, especially if you love the taste of garlic

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

Sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper, as desired to taste

2-3 cups of brussel sprouts, cut in halves or quarters


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line with parchment paper or spray with a cooking spray/coconut oil or butter. Mix the first four ingredients well in a bowl. Pour the dressing over the brussel sprouts on the baking sheet or in a bowl and lay the sprouts out for roasting. Keep an eye on them, as they can burn easily, but 15-20 minutes is a good time for them to roast.
