Poached Egg...

Can you make a perfect poached egg? It's looks so easy to make one but surely we need to practice to make a really perfect poached egg. I remember the first time I made a poached egg...didn't work well until I browse lots of "how-to" videos on Youtube and found the perfect one. So, now I can make a perfect poached egg. It's so easy when you finally now the trick on how to make one perfect poached egg. Here's one recipe by A Couple Cooks. Perfect for a Saturday or Sunday morning. Have a great weekend =) xoxo

Poached Eggs

What You Need
  • 4 fresh eggs (it helps if your Mom raises her own chickens!)
  • Splash of vinegar
  • Kosher salt
  • Water
  • Four small bowls
  • Large skillet
  • Slotted spoon
  • Tea towel

What To Do

1 Fill a large skillet with about 1 1/2 inches of water. Add a pinch of salt and just a splash of vinegar. Heat over medium-high until the water just starts to bubble. You want it just below a simmer (about 190°F). Be careful to maintain the temperature throughout the cooking process – you don’t want the water to boil.

2 Crack each egg into a small bowl. Carefully slide each egg into the water. Make sure to give plenty of space between each egg. The egg whites will spread out a bit as they hit the water, but soon start to form up.

3 Allow the eggs to cook for 4 minutes, until the whites set. Remove the eggs with a slotted spoon and place on a tea towel-covered plate to let the water drain off. If you want the egg to look nice, you can trim the edges before serving. Enjoy!
