Daring Kitchen December: Go ahead, poach my eggs.
Posted by Jeanne on December 14, 2010
This is my 200th post! Wild. My little blog, it is almost all grows up!
And this is another Daring Kitchen challenge that made me groan. I hate poaching eggs. So I decided that for this challenge, I would be a dirty cheater and use poach pods AND make blender hollandaise instead of the real deal.
I found out about poach pods from Kate’s blog this past spring and ordered them immediately. And then let the sit in the cabinet for eight months until the
evil wizard blogger behind Jenn Cuisine decided that this was the December challenge.
So yes, I do suck and I am a dirty cheater but… we had delicious breakfast anyway. Hopefully I will recover my ability to make dishes according to written instructions soon. Maybe once Curt quits baking cookies like it’s going out of style and I can get IN the kitchen.

3 egg yolks
Juice of 1 lemon (about 2 TB)
A pinch each of cayenne, salt, and pepper
0.5 C butter (one stick)
Melt butter over medium heat until foaming and bubbling.
Place egg yolks, lemon juice, and spices in a blender. Begin running blender; pour butter in while blender is still running. Let run until thick and foamy, about another 30 seconds.
Pour out and enjoy!

Thanks, Daring Kitchen, for another fun challenge! Even if I am a dirty cheater…
