Well, it's Saturday morning and you want a great breakfast for you and the family, something everyone will like. You just don't want to be all morning working in the kitchen; you want an easy breakfast recipe. Something that will get you out of the kitchen without undue effort, but that is still special.

Enter the land of Golden Buck. Poached eggs covered with a great cheesy sauce, all over toast. Cheese lovers will rejoice, and those liking eggs are ecstatic—what more could be asked for?

This is especially nice for the chef of the family; the entire breakfast can be made up in just a few minutes, and cleanup is minimal. This recipe is great if you have little people in the family too. Younger children can grate cheese and stir the sauce as the pan must never get really hot.

Cook Time

Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 15 min
Ready in: 20 min
Yields: 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces cheddar cheese, coarsely grated. about 2 cups.
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 2 teaspoons prepared mustard, ordinary hot dog mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 eggs, poached
  • 6 slices bread, lightly toasted

Instructions

  1. Combine cheese, 2 eggs, milk, butter, mustard and salt in the top of a double boiler if available. A pan on a very low temperature burner may be used as well, but care must be taken not to get it too hot.
  2. Cook slowly while stirring frequently. Do not allow to boil. The mixture will thicken as it cooks; Turn the heat as low as possible at the first sign of thickening or clumping or remove the double boiler from the burner, keeping the mixture over the hot water.
  3. During the cooking process, get the egg poacher ready and hot. As soon as the mixture thickens the slightest bit, begin poaching the eggs, and very shortly thereafter, turn the toaster on.
  4. Timing is critical. If the cheese sauce is cooked too long or allowed to get too hot, it will clump badly and while that won't affect the taste much it will definitely affect appearance and texture. Your goal is to have the toast ready and the eggs poached just as the sauce thickens to the point that lumps are beginning to appear.
  5. Put a poached egg on each slice of toast (buttering the toast is optional, but something I like) and spoon sauce over the egg and toast. Garnish with parsley, if desired.
  6. Add in a slice of bacon or a couple of links of sausage, a little fruit perhaps and a glass of milk or coffee. A breakfast that's hard to turn down.

This has been a favorite in my home for nearly 20 years. Anytime breakfast isn't going to be simple cereal, the request is very often for Golden Buck because it is a very quick and easy breakfast recipe. I often cooperate, to the delight of everyone at the table. It is (almost) as popular as the Rotten Egg Pie that appears at every holiday dinner I'm at.

Give it a try. If you like cheese and if you like eggs, you're sure to be pleased with the result. Just watch carefully that the sauce mix doesn't get too hot or cook too long and you will find this recipe quite easy to make.

      All sounds great but the mustard. Will leave it out and try this soon. Maybe add some curry. This is a great recipe for fish camp breakfasts. Substantial yet quick and easy. Thanks!

      Akriti, there is no bacon in the recipe. If want a meat on the side, though (and I do), any breakfast meat will do. Sausage, bacon, ham, maybe even some turkey or steak.

      Sounds much like my family, pstraubie48. Weekday breakfasts are cold cereal, but when the weekend comes visitors often do as well and it's time to turn on the range.

      And it IS yummy - you're in for a treat.

      My morning breakfast at home is usually oatmeal as I live alone. When my family comes to visit which is often as they leave 2 minutes away, we have the eggs, bacon, ham, grits and all.

      This sounds yummy and I know I have fans who will enjoy it. Sending Angels your way :) ps

      OK! Nice simple meal for those who want a great start to the day. Poached eggs are the pure form of egg - I love to watch 'em materialise in the water. Perfect. And melted cheddar. Sounds good.

      Being English we do occasionally have a mammoth breakfast fry up which as you know can satisfy like no other breakfast! Eight to ten different foods on a plate - not for the faint hearted, not for everyday, but like your Golden Buck well worth waiting for.

      Poached eggs freak me out a little, but I could do this over scrambled and I bet it'd be good, too.

      Hi wilderness,

      Never heard of these but I do like the look and sound of them!! Cheese on toast, poached eggs . . . both dishes I love so this is great, combining both!!!!

      Great Idea, quick, easy and ideal for everyone in the family. Votes and sharing this :-)

      Natasha, if you think mustard is a good group, you may have a problem. Cheese, though, comes from Pizza, which definitely is a very important food group. :-)

      Evidently food is different out your way...I've never heard of Golden Buck. I like the way it looks, though! It has some of my favorite ingredients. Cheese and mustard are two of my favorite food groups!

      I was brought up having big breakfasts - bacon, eggs and fried potatoes - but nowadays I tend to eat porridge or toast. Sometimes we do have something more substantial - I know my husband would love this, so I will be trying it out.
