Sunday, September 25 - Easy Crabby Eggs

Easy Crabby Eggs
I don't know why, even when D is off, we limit our Brunching to the weekends, but we do.  D bought some lovely lump Crab meat and normally we do Crab Cakes with them so we can have the fully crabby goodness instead of losing it in a big dish.  But I dropped the idea of an Eggs Benedict using the yummo Rosti we have in the freezer and D got fished in.  The thing is that D was making breakfast and I am the Egg poacher.  So D did an Easy Benedict with Over Easy Eggs and a nice Dijon Vinagrette instead of a heavier Hollandaise or Bearnaise.

Lemon Tarragon Dressing

1 Lemon, zested and juiced
1 t fresh Tarragon, minced
1/4 - 1/3 c Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Coarse Salt and Black Pepper

Whisk in small bowl.

Easy Crabby Eggs
2 of your favourite Potato Rosti (we buy ours at IKEA) but you could easily grate your own Potatoes.
OR 2 whole grain Toast
2 Eggs, cooked just over Easy so you have runny Yolky goodness to melt into the Crab
150 g picked Lump Crab Meat, divided in 4
2 c fresh Baby Greens
Lemon Tarragon Dressing

Cook and place two Potato Rosti on your plate.  Pile some of the Crab Meat on each Rosti.  Season gently but not too much because you will salt your Eggs.

Place one Egg on each Rosti and season the Yolk area.  Pile some Greens on and Drizzle the dressing over.  Sooooo YUMMO!
