Well, I thought I hated poached eggs. I waited for Tom to come home before I made them so that he could enjoy them hot. Well, I took a bite and had to make one for myself! It was delicious! And the sausage was kind of fun to season myself. I really never thought about doing that before. The maple syrup was a really nice addition to it. I think i used too much cayenne pepper though! So I adjusted the recipe so you guys only use 1/4 teaspoon. Enjoy breakfast for dinner once in a while!
