One of the first meals we tried from the website and were amazed - this recipe and the others have all been fantastic. For those having drama making poached eggs, you have got to get the décor egg poacher. It poaches 4 eggs in 1 minute 20 seconds in a microwave and they always come out perfect! So simple to use, fabulous tool for the kitchen. I think the part number might be 2250, not sure. Just Google it....

This dish has an amazingly easy cheat for anyone looking! I suck at poaching eggs (every attempt I have had has ended with gross egg soup...) so I put boiling water into a mug (no higher than the top of the full egg) and place the egg into the water, microwave for 45seconds - 1 minute :) Done! (you can also do the hollandaise sauce this way - egg and water in for 15 seconds, whisk, add soft butter, 15 seconds, whisk, add flavouring, whisk and you are good to go!) Haven't tried the mushrooms or bacon in the microwave though.... I left mine in to grill while the microwave was doing all the work :)

kbutters62, if you don't like mushrooms you could simply substitute with any other allowable vegetable (see our list of friendly foods here: http://celebrityslim.com.au/about-the-program/slimming-foods-what-can-i-eat). We'd recommend something like tomato (sliced in half and cooked in a frying pan to your liking) or baby spinach. For a gourmet yet quick and simple side dish, sauté baby spinach in a sauté pan or skillet on the stove. Gently toss spinach in a pan with a little bit of olive oil until wilted. For a flavour kick, sauté minced raw garlic in the pan before adding the spinach. Sauteed spinach teams up especially well with fish and chicken dishes. Enjoy!
