How To Poach Eggs
I will share my method of making Poached Eggs in this post. I know there are so many ways to make simple beautiful poach eggs. I’ll admit I have tried many of the common methods before and have ended up with a lot of wasted eggs. So, I find this method easiest and it works for me every time without fail! It may not be the best looking poached eggs around; but, it works and is certainly good enough for me. Check out the video and please let me know what you think.
How to Poach Eggs
4 Eggs, at room temperature
A big pinch of Sea Salt
A 9 to 10 inch Pan
Fill about 1 inch water and a big pinch of sea salt in the pan and bring it to a boil.
Turn off the heat. Crack one egg at a time into the water and make sure they are side by side. Closed the lid and allow the eggs to set to the desired consistency. I like my egg yolk runny, so, 3 minutes would be perfect.
Using a slotted spoon or spatula, remove one egg at a time and shake off any excess water. Serve the eggs warm.
