“My DH used to make himself poached eggs using this method all the time. This recipe was found in Chatelaine Food Express Quickies. The cooking time includes the standing time. Note: After reading Lorrie in Montreal's review, I've added poking the egg to prevent messy explosions to the procedure :)”
