Break 1 egg into a small bowl; hold the bowl so it just touches the simmering water and slide the egg into the water

Quickly repeat with the remaining eggs, spacing them about 1 inch apart

Adjust the heat to keep the water at a gentle simmer

Poach until the whites are set and yolks are glazed over but soft, 3 – 5 minutes

About 1 minute before the eggs are done, place 2 muffin halves on each of 4 warmed plates

Top each half with 1 grilled tomato slice and 1 bacon slice

Using a slotted spoon, lift each egg from the simmering water, letting the excess drain into the pan
