Stage 1 -
Stage 2 -
Trim the crusts off 4 slices
and cut into shapes, if you wish (I have chosen lozenges here).
Stage 3 -
Stage 4 -
Pour 3 tablespoons
into a frying pan on medium heat.
When hot, add the sliced leek...
Stage 5 -
...and fry until just lightly browned (not too much).
Salt and pepper after cooking. Set aside to keep hot.
Stage 6 -
Using the same pan, fry the buttered bread on both sides.
Stage 7 -
Heat the plates
, then put a slice of fried bread on each one.
Add a layer of sliced leek.
Stage 8 -
Lay a poached egg on top and serve immediately.
For the best effect, split the egg open just before serving, so that some of the yolk runs down over the leek.
Serve with the split in the egg facing the diner. Remarks
In this recipe, everything can be prepared in advanced , then reheated and assembled at the last minute. But the bread is best fried just beforehand.
