As I was making this for breakfast this morning it occurred to me that there may be a few cooks out there, especially young ones, who don't know how to poach an egg or have never tried it. Or maybe they're intimidated like I was. When I tried to follow the directions in the cookbook it was a disaster every time. It wasn't until I actually SAW a TV chef poach eggs that I finally "got it." And now it's one of my favorite comfort food breakfasts!

How to Make GOOD OL' POACHED EGGS ON TOAST

Step-by-Step

  • 1Place about 2 inches of water in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low as soon as water starts to boil. Add the vinegar to the water.
  • 2Break each egg carefully, so as not to break the yolk, into a separate cup and carefully add each to the water. Cook uncovered for 3 minutes.
  • 3Remove eggs from pan with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels while the bread is toasting.
  • 4Butter the toast and, again with a slotted spoon, lay each egg atop a slice of buttered toast. Salt and pepper to your taste.
  • 5NOTE: The addition of vinegar to the water helps the whites of the eggs firm up and not spread out into the water.
