WOW!! I save the word 'wow' for extra special recipes! This was extraordinary. I came across this same recipe online last week and was happy to see it posted on the food.com site. Followed the recipe as written except I did cut the sage into ribbons (tri-color sage from our herb garden). Be sure the yogurt is drained well for best presentation. My husband declared this recipe: "Phenomenal". I declare it a rare jewel. Presented on a platter with watercress border. Must be served with bread to soak up that sage-y yumminess. Meal accompanied by simple saffron rice pilaf and a tossed salad with seasonal ingredients. Out of this world good! thank you!

This is the recipe that led me to Recipezaar (oh happy day). It was posted on another site and is now a regular treat at our house. Tonight I served it over Greek yogurt, as usual, this time using smoked paprika. Wonderful. And serving it with chunks of crusty bread makes it easy to wipe up every luscious drop. Believe me: it's a crazy sounding dish that is utterly sane and soothing. Thanks Mercy for posting.

WOW! This will wake ya up! Do make sure your garlic is finely minced. Biggish chunks early in the day are a rude awakening, lol. This dish is really, really tasty! I'm a huge fan of poached eggs. The yogurt underneath at first sounded a bit odd but it works nicely. Especially with the butter sauce on top. No one flavor is overbearing. It's all a big mouthful of deliciousness. If I didn't take a pic, I'll make it again! Made for Turkish Delight in the NA/ME Forum 11/13.

This was my first attempt at poaching eggs, and aside from my technical issues, this recipe was very easy to make and tasty. All of my kids devoured their portions and told me how delicious it was (they usually complain about eggs). Thanks Mercy!

There's nothing so good that a couple of eggs can't make even better...except maybe macadamia white chocolate chip cookies.

This was delicious!I would never have thought to put these flavors together. Used Eggbeaters instead of poached (cholesterol) but I wouldn't recommend that to someone unaccustomed to them. I will make this again, reducing the yogurt just a touch. Thanks!
