I think this one turned out really pretty... and it was certainly delicious. So simple, but elegant... poached egg over asparagus with hollandaise sauce.
Kind of a girly meal (he'd want a "real entree" and this would be the side item for him), I made it while my husband was out of town. Mmm.



I haven't done a tutorial for how to poach an egg yet, but if you don't know how you could just use an over-easy or over-medium egg... the runny yolk is what makes it so wonderful. And in case you don't already know how to make the sauce, check out my easy hollandaise sauce recipe with step-by-step photos.

The sauce isn't as daunting as people try to make it seem... basically you melt some butter with lemon juice, slowly whisk it into some egg yolks (about 3 tbsp butter, 2 tbsp lemon, 2 egg yolks) and then whisk the whole thing in a double boiler until it thickens.
Easy peasy!

Oh my gosh, that looks really good. My mouth actually started watering when I saw it. And thanks for the tip on the sauce, I always thought it was too difficult.

I'm going to try this. Smiley

mmmmmm yum....  I want to eat that now... I wish I had bought the asparagus yesterday......  My Mom's holandaise sauce is similar to that, only she spinkles in a bit of seasoning salt (the MSG free version) yumm....

Eat anything, but if it bites back, boil it.

Maybe try wrapping the asparagus in prosciutto to add a salty contrast to everything else?

Ooh I do like seasoning salt. Maybe I will try that next time.

A lot of people have that same misconception about the sauce being a tricky thing... it's really not, and I'm glad I could put a tutorial out there to inspire people to try it. Smiley Let me know how it goes for you!
