Cook the Issue 2010: Poached Eggs with Creamy Brussels Sprouts and Bacon

The world is divided into two types of people: those who are ready for Brussels Sprouts for breakfast (me) and those who are not (everyone else).  For the former (we few, we happy few), this recipe makes a great Christmas breakfast.  The crispy bacon and crunchy sprouts mixed with the rich egg yolk and creamy sauce make for a delicious combination-- and on toast!  For the rest of you, it's better to have a few leftover scones hanging around.

I did make a few modifications-- instead of poaching the sprouts in cream and water, I sauteed the sprouts in the bacon fat, then added a splash of cream, which then reduced a bit.  I forgot the parmesan too-- but I didn't notice!

Pielove writes: liamsaunt, my family was all very dubious about the creamed brussels sprouts on toast-- it's become somewhat of a running joke over the holiday. So I had to share your comment with them-- I think they suspect you are being sarcastic! But it was really good-- I hope you like it! Posted: 8:09 pm on December 27th
