Maple-Poached Eggs (reprinted from Casey Elsass’ recipe on Food52)

1 cup maple syrup

2 eggs

Toast and butter

In a small saucepan, bring maple syrup to a boil, then lower to a simmer. Crack the eggs into the syrup, kindly now! Let be for 3 minutes. Spoon some of the syrup over the eggs so they stay sweet. 
Place each poached egg into a small dish with a slotted spoon. Drizzle with some syrup. Eat!
