You've got your mashing and seasoning technique down, but you're ready to take your favorite breakfast to the next level. A poached egg is the perfect protein-packed add-on that's both convenient and quick. To get the most nutritional benefits from your eggs, seek out the best-quality pasture-raised eggs you can find.
