Congrats on your amazing weight loss by the way! And - I liked poached eggs on top of a spinach salad - you don't even need dressing!

I love them over garlic spinach (or other sauteed greens) or sweet potato/veggie hash!

I had poached eggs on potato pancakes yesterday (they were latkes, it was a Jewish deli...) While the pancakes were - just OK - I think the idea of sweet potato pancakes might work for you. Shred the sweet potatoes, steam them with some chopped scallions, and then bind together with some egg beaters and a little bit of flour. If you substitute for the 'little bit of flour,' just be aware of how that's going to change the taste. Season with some salt and pepper; you can taste what you have because the eggbeaters are pasteurized. Then spray a pan with PAM and fry the pancakes briefly. Put in a 400 degree oven to heat all the way through and cook well.

This would be a very nice looking plate with some steamed spinach and chopped fresh fruit.

Crispy pork rinds. Yum.
Those things make great "breading", too.

Ohmygosh, that does look good!

Inspired by this thread, i just made some poached eggs for breakfast today (usually i'm lazy and just scramble and egg or two into my veggie saute, "egg fu yung" style... but today I hauled out the separate pot). Put them on top of sauteed red cabbage and onions, garnished with a drizzle of Sriraccha (sp?) sauce. It looked gorgeous and tasted great!

Try this recipe. But instead of pasta - use spaghetti squash!

Putting them on steamed Swiss Chard or some Spinach and then with a dusting of pepper on top and they are delicious. I thought they would be yuck when I saw it done the first few times, but when I had surgery to remove a wisdom tooth (had to drill a hole in my jaw and twist the tooth around and drag it through the hole) I couldn't really eat anything much so I decided to try it. Man, I now realized why that old man loved it done this way :-)

IF you are allowed baked beans, they are nice on that, too!

Put them on a salad - seriously! It's good! Just google "poached eggs salad" and you'll get dozens of recipe ideas. Such as this one summertomato.com/summer-salad-with-poached
-egg/


or over asparagus

Hi everyone. This is my first post, so please be gentle :)

I am in step one of my long journey to better health. I started out at almost 450 pounds in February (damn that's hard to admit, even anonymously) and I'm currently working toward hitting a goal weight of 365 so I can have a gastric sleeve done.

I am down to 385 as of today by cutting out dairy, fruit and sugars, and bread and other starches. I am drinking 3 protein shakes a day and I eat two small meals mostly containing protein and vegetables

I really miss poached eggs but in my mind if you eat a poached egg you need bread with it to get that runny yolk. I know it's a tall order but does anyone have any suggestions for what I could put my poached egg on? Bread, pasta and rice are all out for me, I'm afraid.
