PERFECT POACHED EGGS

Everyone has their own little way of making poached eggs.

They all suck, and they are all way too hard.

This is the easy way, and the eggs will be perfect every time.


I love Poached Eggs. They are one of my favourite meals for breakfast. But I couldn’t cook them to save my life. So for ages I frequented a local cafe for Sunday Breakfast, simply because they did the most amazing Poached Eggs.

After many months of pleading, the Head Chef finally took me into his kitchen to show me how to cook Poached Eggs.

There are three things that you must get right for this to work:

  1. The eggs must be FRESH, and I mean F..R..E..S..H.. 1 or 2 days old only. Fresh eggs retain their “egg shape” when cooking. Older eggs will spread-out.
  2. The water must be only just bubbling, ever so slightly
  3. You must use vinegar. Really

So….

  1. Get your saucepan of water on the boil, then reduce the temperature until it is just bubbling gently. Too many bubbles means that the egg will break up, not enough bubbles and the water isn’t quite hot enough.
  2. Add 1/3rd of a cup of white vinegar,
  3. Gently break the egg into the water. Release the egg as close to the water as you can – this will help stop it from spreading out.
  4. Give the water one gentle stir with a spoon – this is to help prevent the egg from sticking to the base.
  5. Cook for 2-3minutes.
  6. Remove the egg with a slotted spoon and allow all the water to drain away before you put it onto Toast.
