Poached Eggs and Bacon with Creamy Artichoke-Lemon Sauce Recipe at
In a small bowl, whisk together the sour cream, yogurt, mustard, lemon juice, basil, salt and pepper. Mix the chopped artichoke hearts into the sauce and set aside.

In a large nonstick pan over medium heat, fry the bacon until crispy. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate

In a large, shallow saucepan, warm about 2 1/2 inches of water and bring to a gentle simmer (not a boil). Break the eggs one by one into a ramekin and slide each one into the water. Cover the pan and remove from the heat. Let sit for 3 minutes.

While the eggs cook, toast the sourdough bread until golden. Plate the toast then layer the bacon in a crisscross pattern across the bread. Spoon the artichoke and lemon sauce over the bacon.

As soon as the eggs are finished, use a slotted spoon to remove the eggs in the order that you placed them into the water. Place two poached eggs on top of each of the slices of bread. Sprinkle with basil, lemon zest and freshly cracked black pepper. Serve immediately.

This was so excellent. Made it for Friday night dinner and looking forward to making it again - soon. We only had an 8 oz can of artichokes but that seemed to be plenty. Highly recommend this dish!
