When you know how to poach an egg then this recipe will become a frequent visitor to your kitchen. The Poached Egg on Muffins is an easy recipe to follow. Imagine making breakfast or brunch for 4 people and be ready within 10 minutes. Having the cheddar cheese melted on top of the muffin but below the tomato creates a little barrier to prevent the muffin getting soggy. I normally grated the cheese but some like it sliced. Either way works. This is my grandchildren’s favourite brunch meal. They add a little dollop of red sauce between the cheese and the muffin. Whatever you are looking for in a dish this is a contender.
