Bacon bones impart a delicious smokiness to the creamed corn but feel free to leave them out. You can always add a pinch of smoked paprika instead for a similar result. The creamed corn can be made a day in advance and warmed before serving.
Note For beautifully shaped poached eggs, use the freshest eggs you can find. Pickled jalapeños are available from select delicatessens and supermarkets.
