Egg Recipe #6

 Easy Poached Eggs 

In a 12-inch straight-sided skillet, heat 2 inches water over medium until bubbles cover the bottom and sides of pan.

 Crack each large egg into a separate small bowl (do not use eggs with broken yolks). 

When a few bubbles have broken the surface of the water, gently pour each egg into the pan, leaving room between them.

Cook eggs, undisturbed, until white is just set and yolk is still runny, 3 to 4 minutes. Use a rubber spatula to gently release eggs from the bottom of pan, if necessary.

Using a slotted spoon, remove eggs from water. If using immediately, blot the bottom of the spoon on a paper towel to remove excess water before serving.

Cook's Note

If your egg white thins out in the pan, try swirling the water before adding the next egg. The moving water will help hold the egg's shape. You can refrigerate poached eggs for up to 3 hours, on a parchment-lined plate. To serve, heat water in skillet according to instructions in step 1 (above); gently add eggs and cook just until heated through, 30 to 45 seconds. Remove eggs and blot as directed.

I have not made poached eggs in such a long time I was afraid they would not come out. To be honest I bet it has been close to 20 years. They use to be my favorite way. It was a lot easier than I remember.
Tip; just do not get your water to boil, you want little bubbles.

"The Man of The Place" is my tester for all my new recipes or cooking attempts. He said this how he wants his eggs cooked from now on, which is OK with me, takes no fat to cook them. A lot healthier

Till next time,
