eating this: a poached egg

05.02.12

Is there anything better than a perfect little delicate egg on your bread? WHOA YUM!

I LOVE EGGS! And poached ones are my favorite! Definitely my top 3 styles. I’ve been doing it the same way for years (I watched a Gordon Ramsey tutorial and became obsessed with trying), but recently watched this video and thought I should try it. But I didn’t, this was done my usual way.

Poached Egg

Fill a pot with a couple inches of water. Add a dash of vinegar. Turn on high heat and bring to a simmer (not a boil!).

Crack a cold egg into a shallow bowl (it’s easier to pour in this way). Once the water is getting super hot, take a slotted spoon and spin the water, causing a whirlwind type thing.

While it’s tornado-ing, quickly drop the egg in. About 3-4 minutes later, lift the egg out with your slotted spoon and let dry on a paper towel. Then demolish it.
