Poached Egg over Mustard Greens

I made a poached egg the old-fashioned way for breakfast this morning, served over steamed mustard greens. Mustard greens are so weird tasting!  I don’t think I really like them.  But they have massive amounts of vitamin K and loads of other healthiness, so I guess I can get myself to eat them occasionally – especially if they’re coming from my local Master Gardeners garden like these did.

Poached Egg in Cast Iron Mason Jar Ring

Old Fashioned Poached Egg Recipe
  1. Toss a mason jar ring into your cast iron skillet.
  2. Fill the skillet up with water to just barely above the top of the ring.
  3. Bring the water to a simmer (that spot where tiny bubbles are coming up and you’re sure it’s about to start boiling at any second).
  4. Gently crack the egg open into the ring.
  5. Take pictures of it for 20 seconds.  Or not.  😛
  6. Put a lid on it and move the skillet to a cool burner.
  7. Wait 4-6 minutes for a still runny yolk.
  8. Remove the egg with a slotted spoon.
  9. Eat!
