Poached eggs in red wine sauce

  1. Peel and chop the carrot
  2. Put the chopped carrot and shallots in the sauce pot
  3. Cover with water and cook until the water is completely gone
  4. Mash the cooked shallots and carrots and put them back in the pot.
  5. Pour in the wine over the cooked carrots and the shallots.
  6. Bring to a boil and let simmer for 5 minutes.
  7. Crumble the honey cake and stir into the wine.
  8. Take the butter and swirl it in bit by bit till the sauce is formed.
  9. Strain, add salt and pepper to taste and set aside to keep warm.
  10. Toast the slices of bread and spread on some mustard.
  11. Boil the water and vinegar in 6 quart pot.
  12. Break an egg into a small cup or ramekin
  13. When the water is barely simmering, pour the egg gently into the hot water.
  14. The water should not boil but simmer.
  15. As the egg goes into the water take a slotted spoon and swirl around each egg so the white gets as close to the yolk as possible.
  16. Then, with the slotted spoon, gently turn the egg over.
  17. Let the eggs cook for about 1 to 2 minutes. The yolk should still be liquid.
  18. Remove the poached eggs with a slotted spoon and place on a clean towel to absorb the excess liquid.
  19. Remove any excess pieces of egg white and place on the toast.
  20. Pour the warm red wine sauce in a soup bowl and place the toast with the egg on top into the bowl.
