This weekend, my husband requested poached eggs for Sunday brunch. I’d never made them before so after Googling (and finding 14,622 ways to poach an egg) I just dove in and tried it for myself. The first time the water was too hot and the yolk was hard as a rock. The second time, it was slightly undercooked. But, third time was a charm!
Vinegar (optional – I did not use)
Bring a pot of salted water to a simmer. Take a whisk and stir the water in a circular motion. Drop the egg into the center of the water ‘tornado’ you have just created (stirring the water helps cool it down a little and the motion of the water helps the yolk wrap around itself in a nice little ball).
Cook 3 minutes and remove with slotted spoon. Blot on paper towels and serve.
