5 Patties For Poached Eggs

With all due respect to the English muffins and slices of toast that have previously housed poached eggs, this weekend requires something a little more substantial (fine, I drank too much last night).

With a little extra effort — and in the case of grits souffle, discovering the wonders of stiff peaks — you can plop your perfectly poached egg on a more worthy bed and enjoy them without having to listen to the inane brunch conversation of those around you. Psh, you would order another Bloody Mary (hint: by making one yourself you can prevent "watered down Bloody Mary syndrome.") Are you going to stick your fork in your friend's pancakes and yell "yoink" again? Ugh, hangovers.
