We’re strong supporters of the “put an egg on it” theory that many dishes can be improved with the addition of a good old-fashioned sunny side-up. But Lara Ferroni’s new book takes it a step further, as in, you’ll never have to think what to put an egg on again. Her recipes are tailored to feature this ingredient at its finest. First up, a sweet and savory brunch dish involving waffles, syrup and eggs in a way that makes us very hungry.

Wouldn’t you love to be one of those fancy people who can plan far enough in advance to make yeasted waffles for breakfast? Me too. That’s why, instead, I give you this recipe for maple syrup–poached eggs and waffles, which requires only about as much forethought as turning on the waffle iron. And anyway, your waffles will be super fancy because you’re serving them with eggs poached in maple syrup. Yep, you read that right: eggs poached in maple syrup.
