Poached Eggs with Smoked Salmon, Polenta, and AsparagusOnce you’ve made this elegant breakfast, you’ll not only have something extra special to serve your family and guests, you’ll know how to poach eggs and make your own polenta. Both are easier than you may have thought. The recipe calls for blanched asparagus; this just means you put it into boiling water for 30 seconds. When you take the asparagus out, you should put it in cold water or it’ll keep cooking till it’s too soft. This comes to us from the Mountain Top Inn and Resort in Chittenden, Vermont, where you’ll find everything from a private beach to massage therapy.
