Traditional egg dish from Berne

Top Review by The Flying Chef

I am not a lover of poached eggs so this review is from my husband really.. Although I did taste the onion sauce that topped the dish and I thought it was exceptional.. My hubby is a major eggs benedict lover so I thought that even though this wasn't that it was a lovely twist with the onion to top the eggs with.. I poached my eggs as my hubby loves poached eggs and then in a benedicts style I toasted a bagel as I did not have any muffins on hand and topped with some ham and the eggs and finally garnished with chopped chives for a totally delicious breakfast. He said that if he got this served in a restaurant he would be very happy and although I gave 4 stars he said it was between the 4 and 5 mark. Like I said earlier the onion mix that you top the eggs with is really delicious and I will be making this one again for sure.. Thanks for posting
