Eye Like My Eggs Poached

Dr. Barb’s husband, Dr. Chris has shared with us his tried and true method for making poached eggs.

  • Fill a large sauce-pan ¾ full with water. Add 1 tbsp of white vinegar to the water.
  • On high heat, bring water to a simmer.
  • While you are waiting for the water to come to a simmer, crack each egg into its own ramekin or small bowl.
  • When water comes to a simmer, reduce heat to medium high so the water is simmering very gently.
  • Using a slotted spoon stir the water clockwise, creating a swirl. While the water is swirling, slowly pour each egg into the water.
  • For a soft, runny yolk, cook for three and a half minutes. If the water starts to boil too hard, reduce the heat.
  • Using a slotted spoon, remove each egg from the water and gently place them onto a plate lined with a paper towel to absorb the excess water.
