It's not as hard as it looks...If you follow me on Instagram you know this is my favorite way to cook eggs. I get a lot of questions about how to poach an egg. It's very simple and gets easier with practice. Here is my step-by-step guide. Serves 1.
Add 1 tsp salt and 2 tsp vinegar to a pot of water. Simmer over medium heat.
Crack a fresh cold egg into a small bowl. Use the handle of a spatula or a spoon to quickly stir the water in one direction creating a whirlpool. Carefully drop the egg into the center of the whirlpool. Turn off the heat, cover the pan and set your timer for 5 minutes. Remove the egg with a slotted spoon and serve immediately. Season with JF Universal Salt and fresh cracked black pepper.
