  • 1/4 cup light mayonnaise 60 mL
  • 2 tbsp plain yogurt 30 mL
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard 15 mL
  • 1–2 tsp fresh lemon juice 5–10 mL
  • 4 eggs 4

At camp: In a small bowl, stir together the mayonnaise, yogurt, mustard and lemon juice. In a medium nonstick skillet, add 1 inch (2.5 cm) water; bring to a gentle boil. Slowly slide eggs into wa­ter. Poach for 3 minutes or until eggs are cooked as desired. Lift from water to a warm plate to drain. Meanwhile, cook bacon until browned on each side. Place muffin halves on two plates, spread­ing each with margarine. Top each half with one egg and one slice of bacon. Spoon sauce over the top, then season with pepper and serve.
