Finally, I’ve perfected the Poached Egg!
I’ve been eating a lot of poached eggs lately because I seem to have an obsession with Avocado Toast topped with Poached Eggs… OBSESSED!
After much trial and error of trying to perfect the poached egg, I finally did it and I can’t wait to share it with you all! 🙂
Crack each Egg into a ramekin dish, or something similar like these little glass bowls, or you could even use a measuring cup.
Fill a saucepan 2/3 full of water.
Bring water to a boil then turn down heat so the water is a slow simmer. You’ll see bubbles coming to the surface but it won’t be a rolling boil.
Take a large spoon and swirl the water in a circular motion.
Bring the dish with the Egg as close to the water as you can get and slowly let the Egg slip into the swirling water.
Cook the Egg for about 2 1/2 minutes.
Cooking time will really depend on how runny you like your poached Eggs. I personally like mine a little more runny. If you like your yolk cooked a little more you could cook it 3-4 minutes.
Remove the Egg with a slotted spoon.
Eat as is, or add it to toast.
My favorite is to add it to Avocado Toast, YUM!
