Perfectly Poached Pee Wee Eggs

Posted on Posted in Blog, Eggs, Food, Recipes, Sweet Potatoes


We love our pee-wee eggs.    They are truly a great symbol of spring and quite honestly give new meaning to “fresh” when it comes to eggs.    We call them pee-wees, because they are the very first eggs our new layers lay, and they do start out incredibly small; much smaller than a small egg you might find at a grocery store.   Kids think they are adorable and love when we are able to offer them.   

We thought we would experiment a bit with some fun ways to add these “once a year” rare eggs to our morning meal and came up with a truly delicious meal.   It actually would make a great after school snack as well. 


It does help a lot if you have some pre-baked yams ready to go.  (I often have few pre-baked in the fridge ready to go)    

Then just slice the yams into thick rounds or on the diagonal works well too.   Put the yam slices into the toaster to warm up and crisp on the outside a little bit.   You may have to do this a couple times to get them warmed all the way through.    Top the yam slice with fresh guacamole or even a hummus would be nice.   Place 1 pee-wee egg on each “toast” round and garnish with cilantro or other fresh herbs.  Salt and pepper to taste.  Serve with slice fruit.    It is hard to stop at just two, they are so good!

Super quick, just the basics for fresh guacamole.  

  1. 1 ripe avocados.
  2. 1/4 teaspoon  salt.
  3. 1/2 -1 Tbsp of fresh lime juice or lemon juice.
  4. 1-2 tablespoons cilantro (leaves and tender stems), finely chopped.
  5. A dash of freshly grated black pepper.


Note.  If you do not have a pre-cooked yam,  just cut the yams thinner and put in the toaster a few extra times to cook all the way through.
