dyed poached eggs; happy easter!

i was thinking what to cook for easter breakfast and the first thing that came to my mind was eggs in a basket. eggs in a basket is where you cut a hole in a piece of bread, put the bread in a frying pan and crack the egg inside the bread! so cute. but then i thought i wanted to dye my eggs. i then decided to make dyed poached eggs! so what i did was i dyed the water that i was cooking my eggs in! genius.

boil a small pot of water with 1 teaspoon of vinegar (helps with the foam when cooking)
put whatever color dye you want in the water to make it the color you want the egg to be!
once water is at a boil, stir the water to make a whirl pool (this will help the egg bind better together when you crack it into the water)
carefully crack the egg into the boiling water
cook for 3 minutes
use a slotted spoon to scoop the egg out of the water
place egg on a plate with a paper towel so all the extra water absorbs

POOF you have a dyed poached egg 🙂 i ate mine with cinnamon raisin ezekiel bread, strawberry jam and canadian bacon. enjoy!
