I love poached eggs on toast, but never knew quite how to make them till I found these easy instructions in my 1979 Pillsbury Cookbook, a cookbook which I've had for over 30 years. This is a tried and true recipe!

How to Make Poached Eggs on Toast

Step-by-Step

  1. Lightly grease a deep skillet, or a saucepan. (I spray the skillet or saucepan with a no-stick cooking spray.)
  2. Add 1-inch of water to the skillet, but if using the saucepan, add 1-1/2-inches of water.
  3. To the water, add the 1/4 teaspoon of salt; then heat water just to boiling.
  4. Break eggs into 2 separate custard dishes.
  5. When the water comes to a boil, carefully slip the eggs into the skillet or saucepan.
  6. Cover the pan or skillet, and cook over low heat for 3 minutes.
  7. Remove poached eggs with a slotted spoon or pancake turner.
  8. Serve poached eggs on buttered toast, then season with black pepper and a light sprinkle of dried parsley flakes.
