This was outstanding on so many levels! Made it, loved it, posted it!! http://www.fransfavs.com/2012/10/poached-eggs-with-creamy-brussels-sprouts-and-bacon/
This is a very tasty dish and a nice change of pace for a brunch. The only downside is the prep and number of things going on at the same time. I served it over english muffin and prepped the bacon the day before so I had minimal work in the morning. Absolutely delicious, even for those who think they don't like brussel sprouts!
This is such a delicious recipe. I have always been fond of poached eggs over fried relative to the "fat". The use of Brussels Sprouts is so unexpected. The bacon adds that distinctive, got to have it, flavor. Works really well for a large group breakfast item if you know how to "hold" poached eggs.
I made this for supper last night, and my Brussels sprout loving Belgian husband loved it. I did too, and I'm not really a fan of Brussels sprouts. I didn't make toast, and instead served it on still-warm slices of Lahey's no-knead bread. The combination of all of the ingredients was spectacular, so if you make this be sure to include the Parmigiano Reggiano-- it really makes the dish!
This is delicious-- the creamy sauce mixed with the rich egg yolk make a great contrast to the crispy sprouts and crunchy, salty bacon. However, let me warn you that not everyone is ready for brussels sprouts for breakfast-- I made this for Christmas breakfast for my family and they are still teasing me about it into the new year. Make it for lunch-- or only for true lovers of all thing brassica.
