Eggs In Basil Goat Cheese Sauce

Poached eggs again. This time in basil sauce with goat cheese.

I picked a large handful of basil leaves and roughly chopped them. I blended them along with chopped onion, garlic and milk. I then ran it through a sieve and set the liquid aside.

In a skillet I melted butter and coconut oil, into which I whisked all purpose flour. To the rue I added milk, the strained basil liquid, goat cheese, salt, onion powder, garlic powder and nutmeg. I then added the eggs and covered the skillet with a lid.

The eggs cooked in the sauce at a low temperature until they were set.

  1. Unfortunately I don’t have the discipline to measure or document amounts when I cook. I have made some well intentioned efforts at writing down measurements but rarely get very far along before losing track. This is a dish I want to revisit before the basil plants freeze so I will put extra effort into documenting amounts next time I make it. Thanks for bringing it back to my attention!
