Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

water
2 tsp
salt (optional)
1 Tbsp
white vinegar
4
eggs

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Put 1 1/2 inches of water in a deep large skillet and bring to a boil.

Add vinegar to water and salt if using. The salt makes them firmer and less shiny. The vinegar helps hold them together.
3
One at a time, break eggs into a saucer and slip into barely simmering water, keeping eggs as separated as possible.
4
Cover skillet until egg whites coat over yolks.
5
Remove cover. Cook 3 to 5 minutes until whites are firm but the yolks are still soft when touched with the back of spoon.
6
With a slotted spoon or pancake turner, lift each egg from the water and rest on a folded paper towel to absorb excess water.
7
Trim away the loose thin whites and place of serving plate or recipe calling for poached egg.
