So I'll admit, I didn't actually make these. In fact, my brother (who came home for spring break this weekend) was the one who did. I've only ever tried to poach eggs once before, and let me tell you, it was not successful. So congrats to my brother for getting it on the first try. I did, however, style the plate with black pepper and basil.
He looked up the instructions online and found the very helpful article How to Poach an Egg. I didn't actually get to taste them because I had to leave for an appointment, but I was told by my family that they were fantastic.
