Tonight I poached an egg, not very exciting I hear you say, but for me very!  I LOVE poached eggs but I have for years and years I have totally avoided making anything with this as I thought they were to hard! But I have been wrong, so so wrong! They are easy peasy!

So here is my version of easy poached eggs!

First of all I am a visual learner so I YouTubed it, and found this from Curtis Stone, first because he is an awesome chef but secondly because honestly he is pretty, very easy on the eyes!

Curtis Stone – How to Poach an egg

So after watching Curtis I made my own version up –

I brought my saucepan of water to the boil, and added 4 tablespoons of vinegar (I only had normal white vinegar).

I cracked my egg into a mug first and then slid in into the water

I did this 3 times, into the same water. and they all survived!

I then turned down the water to low, I then let slow boil for 3 minutes.

This gave me three perfect runny POACHED EGGS!!!

I used a slotted spoon to scoop them out and put on my corn and zucchini fritters!

  1. Awesome! I’ve only ever made poached blobs, sliding them out of a mug sounds like the trick! Maybe my eggs get all blobby with stringy whites because they get dumped form the shell into the hot water from 6-8″ in the air. Thanks for the Curtis Stone link!
