DIRECTIONS

  • Pour 2 tablespoons of vinegar into the poaching water.
  • Crack open eggs one at a time, into a small bowl.
  • Bring the water to a boil, then reduce temperature.
  • When water reaches a gentle simmer, pour egg into a ladle.
  • Gently transfer eggs into simmering water.
  • The egg whites will coagulate instantly & the vinegar will change the pH level of the poaching water.
  • Poach the eggs for 3 minutes spooning the simmering water over the eggs.
  • When the whites become opaque and feel firm to the touch they are done.
  • Gently remove eggs with a slotted spoon and lay them on sheets of paper towel to dry.
  • Serve immediately.
