'MERICAN BEER CHEESE & POACHED EGG Recipe
From Michael Mina PUB 1842

INGREDIENTS  
4 Eggs
14 oz. Heavy Cream
8 oz. American cheese
8 oz. Velveeta cheese
3 oz. Calico Amber Beer
4 tsp. Bacon Bits
Pinch of Chive slices
Directions
1.. Place whole eggs in a 145 degree water bath for 45 minutes. It is important that the water does not reach a temperature above 145 or the egg will become hard boiled.  The egg needs to be liquid so you can stir it into the cheese sauce to add a wonderful richness to the cheese. Remove and run hot water over the egg to stop the cooking process but still keep the eggs warm.
2. In a sauce pot over medium heat, heat the heavy cream to a boil, about 4 minutes. Remove from the heat, and add in the Velveeta, American Cheeses and beer. Mix with an immersion blender until fully incorporated and smooth.  
3. To serve. Place 1 cup of the cheese in a bowl and crack the poached egg on top.  Garnish with 1 tsp. bacon bits and a pinch of chives. 

4. Serve with pretzel rods, vegetables or tortilla chips.
