Oddly it seems that eggs are much more versatile than most people may think! I'd love to see and try your recipes! :) Here's one of mine: Poached Eggs On Toasted English Crumpets ---------------------------------------- 6 extra large eggs 6 Crumpets (Or English Muffins) 6 Slices of Gruyere cheese 6 fresh basil leaves 1/2 stick of butter Salt and Pepper to taste 1 cup water and one cup white wine for poaching ------------------------------------------------ Coat the sides and bottom of a frying pan with butter and pour in the water and wine, turn on the heat and add salt and pepper to the liquid as it comes to a boil. Lower heat to a simmer and carefully add each egg (crack them, first) into the liquid, simmering for about 2-3 minutes or until the yolks are covered. Meanwhile toast your crumpets or muffins under a broiler until each is lightly browned the place one pat of butter and one slice of cheese on each. Place crumpets on a serving platter and place one poached egg on top of each, adding adding a dot of butter, if desired, and garnish each egg with the fresh basil leaves. Serve immediately. Make sure that this dish is hot so that the cheese will be delightfully gooey when your guests put their forks into it! :)
