Poached Eggs


4 oz. smoked salmon
4 tablespoons cream cheese, softened
4 eggs
2 teaspoons white or rice vinegar
2 English muffins, split
1 teaspoon salt


Add 1 teaspoon kosher salt and 2 teaspoons white vinegar and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Meanwhile, crack 1 very fresh cold large egg into a custard cup or small ramekin.  Gently pour the egg (one at a time) in poaching liquid.  The egg will poach gently for about 2 to 4 minutes until desired doneness.  Remove egg from water when ready with slotted spoon and rest egg briefly on paper towel to remove excess water.
