Made this tasty dish for breakfast this morning -- my first time to make poached eggs and they turned out pretty good. I did follow other instructions for cooking the poached eggs by adding vinegar to the water. I think next time I would place everything on an English muffin, but that's just our preference. Made for Spring PAC, April, 2014.
