How to poach an egg

I never made a poached egg because I never knew how and I found this information on the web and it is very helpful to me. I was told poached eggs are delicious and healthy and better for you. I can't wait to make some.

How to Make How to poach an egg


  1. Points to remember
    Make sure your eggs are really fresh.
    Add a small dash of vinegar to a pan of steadily simmering water.
    Crack eggs individually into a ramekin or cup.
    Create a gentle whirlpool in the water to help the egg white wrap around the yolk.
    Slowly tip the egg into the water, white first. Leave to cook for three minutes.
    Remove with a slotted spoon, cutting off any wispy edges using the edge of the spoon.
    Drain onto kitchen paper – nobody wants eggy poaching water making their toast soggy or wilting their salad.
