Poached eggs with Shiitake Mushrooms, Wilted Arugula, and White Truffle Cream


When you feel like a fancy breakfast/brunch. I used a new trick to poach my eggs. I put them in a mug with some water and microwaved them for about 30-45 secs until the white is set. It took a little bit of adjusting to get the right time, but I couldn’t believe how nice they came out. Way easier than boiling water and watching your egg just fall apart.

Serve 2

45 minutes


3/4 cup stock (chicken or vegetable)

1 1/4 cup heavy cream

2 tsp. white truffle oil

1 Tbsp. butter

4 large shiitake mushrooms

1 Tbsp. olive oil

1 cup packed baby arugula

4 slices whole grain bread

4 poached eggs


Place stock, cream, and salt into medium saucepan. Stir well and heat over medium-high heat. When mixture begins to boil reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes, until mixture has reduced and thickened. Remove from heat and whisk in truffle oil. Set aside. Heat large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the butter. Place mushrooms gill side down. Saute for 2 to 3 minutes until golden brown. Flip the mushrooms and sauté for another 2 minutes till brown.
