Poached Egg


Poached egg is in my "to-do" list since long ago. I've been seeing a lot of successful stories in making nice poached egg. Last week, I hands on to make 2 poached eggs. The first one didn't turn out beautiful, but the result of second trial seems acceptable. The moment I saw the egg yolk oozing out, I couldn't describe how happy I was. That's why I said cooking is kind of therapeutic to me.

Poached Egg

Ingredients:
2 eggs
800ml of water
1 tbsp of white vinegar
a bowl of ice water

Method:
1. Bring water to a boil in a sauce pan. Add a tbsp of white vinegar.
2. Crack an egg into a bowl. Stir the boiling water with a spoon in clockwise. Gently pour the egg into the center of simmering water.
3. Let the egg cook for 2 to 3 minutes depending on how runny you prefer your egg yolk to be.
4. Remove the egg with strainer and transfer the egg to the ice water. This is to stop the cooking.
5. Return the egg to boiling water and serve hot with toast. Continue the steps for the remaining egg.

oh I love poached eggs! I think they one of the best ways to eat eggs- natural and so good! With abit of cracked pepper and toast to soak up the goodness. Nicely poached!

What a beautiful poached egg! I made one recently without a single of vinegar, simply use a plastic wrap.

It's in my to do list too. I am hoping that mine will be succesful. Our local eggs seem to be so watery,that I worry it won't hold its shape after putting into the water.

I will not lie but poached eggs I just don't care for, mine are always snotty looking. My husband loves them and the snottier the better, yuck. Now you offering just looks good, I don't see anything wet and slimy being offered, sounds silly but I am going to try yet again to may a perfect poached egg.
