Poached Eggs with Curry Butter

Poached Eggs with Curry Butter

Who doesn’t love eggs? I love eggs pretty much anyway I can get them. Serve the eggs with something as decadent and wonderful as Curry butter and I’m sold. Have I ever told you how much I love curry anything?

I even used it on popcorn and deviled eggs. Both of those recipes also came from a Secret Recipe Club blog. Crazy, I know. After a December hiatus, it’s time once again for Group A’s reveal for the Secret Recipe Club. My assignment this month was Sustainable Cooking for One, a blog owned and written by Stephanie. Her blog has a strong focus on in-season and local foods and she works hard to adapt recipes to serving one person.

This was an interesting challenge for me, because I have to feed seven daily. I won’t lie, I went into this with a bit of worry and trepidation. However, it was quickly put to rest as I browsed through her wonderful list of recipes, with which she even provides a recipe allergen chart. I loved that, simply because while we don’t have any food allergies in our immediate family, I do have several friends and family with food allergies.

By the time I was done browsing her recipe index,  I had a huge list of recipes that I was interested in. I had no idea what to pick. It was only after wondering what to have for breakfast one morning about a week after I got my assignment, that I decided that the recipe for these Poached Eggs with Curry Butter was the one. Also up on Stephanie’s blog and on my list was, Cowboy Cornbread and Black Olive and Artichoke Pizza.

But alas my need for a good breakfast won out on this challenge and I’m really glad it did. That morning, there was only 4 of us home so when making it,

I adapted it for 4 people. I was surprised by how much my picky teenagers loved it too, but then they are getting more and more used to curry since I use it so much. Poached eggs are poached eggs but topped with this savory, spiced curry butter sauce… I could have eaten 5 more all drenched in the buttery, slightly tangy goodness.

Thank you so much Stephanie, for a definite keeper!

    Omigosh, I think I might be in love… I do so adore poached eggs on toast as it is, but the curry butter sounds like it would make it a million times more amazing. I bet these would be fantastic substitute for an eggs benny!
