Poaching eggs couldn’t be easier! Not only do eggs prepared this way make a great breakfast all on their own {with a little sea salt & pepper}, you can also use them to top an avocado toast, or bathe them in a luxurious hollandaise sauce in an eggs benedict.

How to Make:

  1. Fill a wide saucepan or sauté pan with water to about 2". Bring it to a gentle simmer - not a rolling boil, which toughens and twists the whites.
  2. Add a splash of vinegar, this helps the eggs keep their shape.
  3. Crack the eggs {fresher ones won't spread as much} into small ramekins. The cups let you gently pour the eggs into the pan so the whites stay in a tight circle, and also ensure that you won't crack a broken-yolk into the water.
  4. Cook the eggs for 3 minutes {the whites should be set and the yolks still runny}, and then remove them carefully with a slotted spoon. Drain them for a few seconds, or blot with a paper towel.


If they cool down before you're ready, just pop them back into the hot water for about a minute to re-heat them just before serving.
