I present you with my absolute favorite breakfast ever – skillet poached eggs with cherry tomatoes and green onion.

Weekends are the the best, aren’t they? We get to sleep in, don’t have to worry about too many work responsibilities and have an awesome breakfast or brunch!

My husband and I both love eggs. We also much prefer a savory over sweet breakfast.

Without a doubt, if I have cherry tomatoes, green onion and eggs on hand, I make this skillet breakfast on the weekends.

I also love adding peppadew peppers which are sweet and slightly spicy. If you are into that sort of thing, go to the Whole Foods olive bar to find them.

You can also use any other kind of herbs or vegetables you have on hand.

My favorite part about this dish are the soft eggs that gently poach in the liquid and juices of the vegetables and herbs. That truly is the secret to this recipe.

 

 

 

 

Steps

1
Done

Sautee the vegetables

Heat a large skillet on medium heat then add 1 tablespoon of olive oil.

Next, add the chopped green onion, diced cherry tomatoes and diced peppadews.

Stir and cook for 2-3 minutes.

Season the vegetables with 1/4 teaspoon salt and about 1/8 teaspoon of black pepper.

Add the chopped parsley and stir and cook for another minute.

Next, add the chicken broth and allow it to simmer on medium-low for about 1 minute.

2
Done

Add The Eggs

With your spoon or spatula, create 4 indents for the eggs.

Crack your eggs into a separate bowl then slowly add them to each indentation.

Cover your skillet and allow the eggs to slowly poach on the vegetables and liquid for 5-7 minutes or until the egg whites are fully set.

3
Done

Serve

Once the eggs are done, immediately remove the skillet from the heat, season with a bit more salt and pepper and serve.

Garnish the eggs with some more chopped parsley and/or chives.

I love sautéed green onions and tomatoes but I never thought to poach eggs right in with the veggies… what a great idea. Pinning this for breakfast this weekend!
