Poached Eggs With Mushrooms and Tomatoes
Serves 4| Hands-On Time: | Total Time:
- 2 teaspoons white vinegar
- 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 2 medium tomatoes, each sliced into 4 rounds
- kosher salt and black pepper
- 1 pound assorted mushrooms, sliced
- 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
- 8 large eggs
- 4 slices country bread, toasted
- 1 ounce Parmesan, shaved
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
- Fill a large, deep skillet with 3 inches of water. Add the vinegar and bring to a bare simmer.
- Meanwhile, heat 1 teaspoon of the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the tomatoes, season with ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper, and cook until just tender, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.
- Add the remaining tablespoon oil to the skillet and heat over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms, thyme, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Cook, tossing occasionally, until golden brown and tender, 6 to 7 minutes.
- Meanwhile, crack 4 of the eggs into separate custard cups. One at a time, slide each gently into the water in the deep skillet. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes for slightly runny yolks and remove with a slotted spoon. Repeat with the remaining 4 eggs.
- Dividing evenly, top the bread with the tomatoes, mushrooms, eggs, Parmesan, and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Sprinkle with the chives.
