Eggs Benedict - My Malaysian Way

What's wrong with kids these days? Can you please tell me? Why do they end up massively fussing about food? Sincerely, I am lost. Parents, what say you please? You are best at your answer because you decide right what your kids should or should not eat? Then, how come you can't tell why your precious adorable darlings food fuss? If I am to answer, I definitely surrender. I really don't know because my time I have to eat whatever that's on the table. Mainly of course rice and simply basic mummy made side dishes, unlike kids this generation who are fed really good food. Of course, their favourites are forever fried stuffs (Malaysian Spicy Fried Chicken Wings & (Mint Mushroom Burger), but when  it comes to those dishes we grew up eating, you should see how kids cause a major ruckus until parents are lost or don't know what to do. This whole thing about food parenting I tell you is really mind blocking and boggling.

Nevertheless, I can somehow guarantee that this generation precious darlings do simply adore eggs (Egg Fish Steamed Rolls, Egg Potato Curry, Egg Vindaloo & Egg Rasam)? Eggs seemingly is the safest bet? Eggs by itself, either half boiled, hard boiled or fried? I reckon so, though I can't tell if eggs into dishes will keep away kids from food fussing (Prawn Mee, Anchovies Fried Rice, Chicken Salted Eggs, Tofu Scrambled Egg & Chicken Black Vinegar). I also like to believe that this egg dish should be a favourite? What say you parents? You know what I think? I think this gooey poached eggs, smothered with a chilli spring onion sauce, atop toast and paired alongside blanched beans, will tune alert the happy food zone of your kids.  Perhaps you should do away with adding chillies for this benedict, mind you, a tweeted and modified version. Yes, my version because I wanted to make do with the ingredients I already had instead of spending unnecessary. Eggs benedict, tell me then? Don't you agree is the best pleasure for breakfast or brunch, sincerely, I have never heard of people having eggs benedict for tea time or dinner.

For the eggs
2 eggs
1/2 tbsp apple cider vinegar (can use normal vinegar)
Salt for taste

Break each one of the egg in a small bowl.
Drop eggs, one by one, into simmering water.

When sauce thickens, add the rest of the ingredients.
Gently mix and keep aside.

Butter both sides of the sliced loaf.
Either grill or bake till golden brown in color.
