I have loved poached eggs since discovering in South African national parks in my youth where you could choose between boiled, fried, scrambled and poached eggs to go with your bacon at breakfast. And I always thought that making them would be very difficult.
While it takes a bit more patience to make them than other variants of eggs, it turned out that the process isn’t overly complicated as Dan demonstrated to me in January. So, there: hot, but not boiling, water with a dash of vinegar, add the egg and let it boil…
… for three and a half minutes or so. Giving the water a little spin before adding the egg apparently helps keeping the egg in shape. And soon you have…
… a lovely smooth egg whose yolk is still liquid. Yum.
Also worth noting - the fresher the egg, the thicker the white and so more intact the poached egg!
Now all you need is some hot buttered toast..
We had fresh bread rolls back then which worked as well :)
Neat! i always thought there was some sort of elaborate custom poaching tool, for some reason…
That’s pretty much what I thought… as it isn’t the case, I gave it another shot this morning :)
