Best of Pure Green | Poached Egg Melt
Like many of the recipes we create for the Organic Kitchen, this one is part of Jonathan and my personal roster of favourites. It's a regular Sunday breakfast at our house, heartily filling, easy but so so tasty, and impressive enough to serve to guests. Take advantage of your fresh garden basil while you still have it and whip up this fabulous open-face sandwich, it makes a great light dinner option too! Enjoy!
- Pumpernickel Bread, thickly sliced
- Blue Cheese or Sharp Cheddar
- Your Favourite Barbeque Sauce
- Fresh Basil Leaves
Wash and prepare veggies, slicing thickly and evenly to stack on the sandwich. Lightly toast the bread. Place on a baking sheet and drizzle with barbeque sauce. Stack sliced tomato, basil, onion and avocado. Soft poach the eggs. Remove from heat and carefully remove eggs using a slotted spoon. Place on the sandwich. Slice blue cheese or cheddar and place on top. Pop in the oven and broil until cheese is melted. Serve!!
