Pork hash with poached egg and avocado

The rest of my family does not share my love of poached eggs, so I made this as a quick lunchtime treat just for me.  It was delicious.  I used a slotted spoon to take the potato chunks out of the water and then poached the egg in the same water.  Everything came together very fast, so this would be good in the morning too.  It was delicious, especially finished off with a dash of hot sauce.  Also, I like my potatoes to have a bit of color, so I added the potatoes about 2 minutes after the onions so they would have longer to cook.

Now I am on a major poached egg kick-- since the rest of the family is not fond of poached eggs, it is like my little addiction-- I am always sneaking off to make a poached egg, or having one as my "special treat".  Some day my daughter will discover toast soldiers in runny egg yolk, then Mommy will have to share.  Until then, the eggs are mine, all mine!! 

Since St. Patrick's Day is almost upon us, I am going to try this recipe with corned beef-- I think the saltiness of the corned beef will make it even better.

Also, I cracked the egg into a custard cup before lowering it gently into the water. Just give it a try-- I think practice makes perfect. Good luck! Posted: 9:51 pm on January 30th

Do you have any tips for cooking a great poached egg? Posted: 8:38 pm on January 30th
