On a trip home to Des Moines, Iowa, I had a delightful brunch at La Mie Bakery. In addition to enjoying buttery croissants and a decent latte, I indulged in a homemade baguette slathered with an earthy bean spread, which became the inspiration for this dish.

Game plan: Everything in this recipe can be assembled in advance. When you’re ready to eat, reheat the bread and eggs, top with sprouts, and serve.

  2. 2To serve, spread 1 tablespoon pâté on each bread slice. Place 2 bread slices on each plate, top with 1 poached egg, and garnish with 2 tablespoons sprouts. Serve.
