Easy Poached Eggs (no vinegar!)Saturday, September 13, 2014
I love poached eggs. But sometimes I don't have husband around to cook them when I want to eat, so today I adventured in the kitchen to try to make a poached egg. On my first try I used the regular recipe that requires to use vinegar in the water, but I didn't like the taste of it.
So I found a Julia Child's video where she teaches how to make poached eggs with no need for vinegar, all you have to do is to poke a small hole on them. Although I didn't bathe my eggs in ice water as she did in the end, my eggs came just as perfect!
Here I am sharing step by step of how to make them.
Let your eggs rest for a little bit before cooking.
Poke a hole on the egg using a (clean) pushpin.
Boil water in a small saucepan.
Add the poked egg gently in the water. Let it sit for about 10 seconds and remove from the pan.
Swirl the water, in one direction, using a spoon.
Gently crack the egg in the swirling water.
Now this step is very important: Don't touch anything. Just wait patiently 2-3 minutes.
Carefully remove the, now poached, egg from the water and transfer to a plate.
