Italian Style Poached Egg Recipe

There isn't many foods I make that doesn't have garlic in the recipe. I love it!  These eggs just takes them to another level. Poached eggs are one of my favorites with these simple spices and a hint of garlic it really kicks them up another notch!  My son absolutely loved them this way and now an all time favorite breakfast in our home.

These are just a delight to eat and make, easy and delicious! I love poached eggs, probably could eat them everyday and never get sick of them. The toast has to be on Italian bread of course!

Italian Style Poached Egg Recipe

Granulated garlic 
Salt and pepper to taste
Red pepper flakes
Boiling water
Italian bread toasted (1 piece per egg buttered)

Make Italian toast, butter both sides and set aside.

In a large 5 quart saucepan add water to fill half the pot. Bring to a boil. Crack the eggs you're going to be cooking and place in a bowl. When the water is boiling, pour the eggs into the boiling water and cook until the whites are solid around 1 minute and 10 seconds. 
Scoop out with a slotted spoon making all the water drain off. Place on buttered Italian toast. Sprinkle eggs with granulated garlic, salt, pepper to taste and red pepper flakes.
