A Theory About Eggs

I have a theory that almost any meal can be greatly improved by sticking a poached egg on top of it. Think about it - there are fewer things in life more enjoyable than the feeling of cutting into just-firm whites, and letting the oozy yolk smother your dinner with its golden comforting warmth.

Last night I made a salad of leaves, petits pois and smoked streaky bacon lardons, dressed in lemon juice and olive oil, and topped it with a simple cod fishcake. Then I proudly placed my poached egg on top, and suddenly dinner got a lot more exciting.

What do you like having poached egg with...salads, steaks, pasta, pizza? Or are they strictly for having on toast?!
