How to Poach An Egg

By   6 Comments

Poached eggs. They’re one of my favorite breakfasts. Incredibly fast and simple to make, but a little finicky if you’ve not done it before.

I’ve had several folks new to the kitchen ask me how to poach an egg. You don’t need any fancy gear or ‘poachers’. In this video, I’ll show you how to poach an egg quickly using just your basic frying pan and a slotted spoon.

If you have any tips on how to make the perfect poached egg, please leave them in the comments below!

    This morning I’ll be trying this method for poached eggs. I’ll have to wait on the chard until I can get to the store. How did you cook the chard? It does look yummy! Any seasonings other than s&p? Can’t wait for the cookbook!

    LOVE poached eggs! Been doing them for years, ever since my nana taught me how, just like in your video 🙂 I like to put them over a few slices of avocado – yummy!
