Serves 4

  • 4 Bays English Muffins, split, toasted
  • 4 ounces sliced smoked salmon
  • 8 poached eggs
  • Balsamic Beurre Blanc Sauce (recipe follows)
  • Red Onion Confit (recipe follows)
  • Fresh chives, snipped

Layer smoked salmon, the 1 tablespoon onion confit on toasted muffin halves. Top with poached eggs. Drizzle with sauce and garnish and chives.

Note: Balsamic Beurre Blanc Sauce can be held in a pre-warmed thermos bottle for up to one-half hour before serving.

Red Onion Confit
  • 2 large red onions, cut in julienne strips
  • 1/4 cup each: red wine, red wine vinegar
  • 2-3 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, coarsely ground
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

Combine ingredients in 2-3 quart saucepan. Cover and cook over medium high heat for 5 minutes. Remove cover and continue cooking over medium heat, stirring occasionally, about 25 minutes until liquid has evaporated and onions are the consistency of a marmalade. Can be prepared a day or two ahead and stored covered in refrigerator.

Yield: 1-1/4 cups
