4 extra large eggs, room temperature
2 whole grain English muffins, split
4 thick slices of ripe tomato
4-8 slices of good quality Canadian bacon
4 cups fresh spinach, washed and stemmed
1-2 slices Swiss cheese
1/4 C. distilled white vinegar
1 t. butter
Salt and pepper to taste
Fill a large sauté pan with water and bring to a boil on stovetop.
Reduce heat to simmer. Add 1/4 C. of distilled white vinegar to
the water. Keep temperature on simmer.
In another sauté pan, melt a teaspoon of butter and add the spinach.
Cook until just wilted. Set aside.
Cut English muffins in half and lightly toast. Place 4 halves on a
baking sheet. Top each of the 4 halves on the baking sheet with 1

of tomato, and 1-2 slices of Swiss cheese. Place under the broiler
until cheese is melted (watch carefully so as not to burn!)
Crack one egg into a small dish and carefully pour the egg into the
water by sliding it down the side of the pan. Repeat with the other
eggs, in separate areas of the pan. Poach the eggs for
approximately 3-5 minutes until whites are completely cooked, but
yolks are still slightly soft.
Carefully remove eggs with a slotted spoon and place each one on
top of a muffin half and garnish with fresh pepper and chives or
