1Boil about 6 cups of water in a big pot – add the 4 eggs, poach 2 min for runny yolks, I prefer the yellow bright but not runny so I go 4 min. Remove and set aside.
2Mix the arugula, tomato, and onion. Combine the vinegar and olive oil, whisk and drizzle over arugula mixture. Add salt and pepper to taste (just a quck hit). Drop in the bacon and gently mix again. Divide the mixture onto 2 plates, spinkle the crumbled goat cheese on each plate.
3Top each plate w/ 2 eggs, drizzle the truffle oil, then add the chives (just a couple of sprigs cut w/ scissors). I usually serve w/ toasted focaccia on the side.
Former CHOW.com associate food editor Aida Mollenkamp demonstrates how to achieve the perfect poach. Poached eggs can be kept refrigerated for a day or two; in the second segment, Aida shows how to reheat the cooled egg. Poached eggs are a lovely accent to many dishes—breakfast, lunch, or a light dinner. We like them in the almost-classic Salade Lyonnaisey and in this Roasted Asparagus with Poached Eggs and Miso Butter.
