Eggs Italiano

This sophisticated take on Eggs Benedict swaps a full-flavored, chunky vegetable medley for Canadian bacon and hollandaise sauce. Add whole-wheat English muffins and poached eggs and this combo makes a lovely brunch or an elegant light supper when served with a salad.


  • 1/4 cup white vinegar, distilled
  • 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 pound zucchini, (about 2 medium) diced
  • 12 ounces plum tomatoes, (3-4) diced
  • 3 tablespoons fresh basil, thinly sliced, divided
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • to taste freshly ground pepper
  • 8 large eggs
  • 4 whole-wheat english muffins, split and toasted
  • 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, freshly grated


Step 1
Fill a large, straight-sided skillet or Dutch oven with 2 inches of water; bring to a boil. Add white vinegar.
Step 2
Meanwhile, heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add shallot and garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in zucchini and tomatoes and cook, stirring occasionally, until the zucchini is tender, about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat; stir in 1 tablespoon basil, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper.
Step 3
Meanwhile, reduce the boiling water to a gentle simmer; the water should be steaming and small bubbles should come up from the bottom of the pan. Crack each egg into a small bowl and slip them one at a time into the simmering water, taking care not to break the yolks. Cook for 4 minutes for soft set, 5 minutes for medium set and 8 minutes for hard set. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the eggs to a clean kitchen towel to drain.
Step 4
To serve, top each muffin half with some of the vegetable mixture, an egg, a sprinkling of cheese and the remaining basil.
