Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 4 minutes

Total Time: 9 minutes

Yield: 4 servings


  • 2 English muffins
  • 1 tsp. white vinegar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 4 slices Canadian bacon
  • 1/4 cup prepared pesto


  1. Toast English muffins. Set aside.

  2. Fill a wide, shallow saucepan or skillet with 2 to 3 inches of water. Add the vinegar. Bring to a fast simmer over medium heat (180 degrees as measured by an instant-read thermometer).

  3. Crack the eggs into individual bowls or ramekins. If the yolks break, discard that egg or use it for something else.

  4. Gently slide the eggs into the water. Let the eggs cook for 2-4 minutes (2 minutes for eggs with runny yolks, 4 minutes for eggs with yolks that are set).

  5. Remove eggs with a slotted spoon. Gently blot dry with a paper towel.

  6. Place a slice of Canadian bacon on four English muffin halves. Top with a poached egg. Spoon a tablespoon of pesto over each egg.
