Almond Crusted Poached Eggs

These Almond Crusted Poached Eggs were delicious.  You probably can not tell from the bulk of my recipes, but I really should be eating grain free.  I was reading a recipe in the Primal Blueprint Cookbook, that seemed perfect for a GF Breakfast. These eggs are poached and then you coat them in almond flour and fry them.  It feels like you are eating bread with your eggs, when you're not.  A delicious alternative to regular Eggs Benedict   Just add hollandaise and you are on your way.  This would be really good for and Easter Brunch. 

Almond Crusted Poached Eggs


2 Poached Eggs
1/2 cup almond flour (separated in half)
2 TB fresh dill
1/2 tsp salt (separated in half)
2 eggs beaten
1 inch of oil in a frying pan
1 tsp vinegar for poaching your eggs


Add 3 to 4 inches of water to a sauce pan and bring to a boil.  Add 1 tsp vinegar to the water.

Turn heat down and let the water simmer.

Break your eggs into ramekins or bowls and gently slide them 1 at a time into your simmering water.

Cook them for 2 to 3 minutes, until the whites are firm and them gently remove from water with a slotted spoon.  Dry them off

While you are poaching your eggs start heating your oil.

Mix the almond flour, salt, and dill together.

Put your egg in a slotted spoon and spoon 1/8 cup almond flour on top of the egg.

Next, spoon 1 beaten on top of the almond flour.

Then spoon the next 1/8 cup of almond flour over the egg.

Next, next gently slide the egg into the hot oil, flour side down.

Fry 2 to 3 minutes until golden brown, then remove from oil with a spatula.

Drain and serve immediately
