It is true that I didn't make this 'Egg Florentine' from scratch. I just cooked and assembled the ingredients that I bought from the supermarket. Should I feel guilty about that? No, I shouldn't. How many people would be making their own bacon, ham or sausages for their breakfast? I mean from scratch. Even most of the restaurants don't make them. Anyway, I had a delicious breakfast this morning. Everything was so well done. The poached egg turned out the way I wanted.
I hope you enjoy the recipe.
