How To Perfectly Poach An Egg

How To Perfectly Poach An Egg

Cooking Method

  1. Fill a deep frying pan with about 2 inches of cold water and bring to a simmer(I have used saucepans and don't find them nearly as effective, so stick with a deep frying pan if you have one in the kitchen).
  2. Once your water has reached a simmer, add a dash of white vinegar (this helps the egg to bind together nicely but you can do without it if you have fresh eggs).
  3. You must use fresh free range eggs if you can because fresh eggs make the world of difference when poaching an egg, so much easier and of course tastier.
  4. Once the water is at a simmering boil, give it a light stir and crack your eggs directly into the water or alternatively you can crack them into a saucer first and then drop them into the water if you find that easier.
  5. Once your eggs are in, lower the heat and poach your eggs for for approximately 3 minutes (it can be longer depending on the size of your eggs). This should give your a firm white and a runny inside.
  6. Remove the eggs from the water with a slotted spoon so the water can drain and they are ready to serve!
