This morning I wanted eggs. One of the nurses I work with was talking about poached eggs on my last shift, so I decided poached was the way to go. The process is actually pretty easy.
In a small skillet or saucepan boil some water, salt and vinegar.
As soon as it boils take the pan off the heat.
Immediately, and gently, ease an egg or two into the hot water.
Slap a cover on the pan and wait patiently...no peeking!
Time out 3 minutes for runny eggs, 4 minutes for medium firm, and 4 1/2 for a firm yolk. (I like mine runny.)
