As I mentioned, I’m in a poached egg mood and order it where ever I go.  But I felt like trying my hand at making them so I did and they turned out really well.

Poached Eggs Cooking  Poached Eggs

Using this guide, here’s how I did it:

  • Used room temperature eggs
  • Put 2 tsp of vinegar into the water and a little salt
  • Boiled the water then brought it down to a simmer (when there are only tiny bubbles that don’t break the surface)
  • Using a small bowl, gently put the egg into the water.  If you’re making two, then use two different bowls. 
  • Cover with a lid and turn off the heat.
  • For a medium-firm yolk, let it cook for 3 minutes. 
  • Remove with a spoon with a slit and make sure there’s no water.
  • Serve and enjoy!
