Poached eggs:

Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

1/4 cup water

2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice

1/2 cup firm cold butter, cut into 8 pieces

1/4 tsp. salt

1/8 tsp. Tabasco sauce

Dash pepper

Yields about 3/4 cup

Whisk egg yolks, water, lemon juice in small saucepan until blended. Cook over very low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture bubbles at the edges.

Whisk in butter, one piece at a time, until butter is melted and sauce is thickened. Remove from heat immediately.
