Perfectly Poached Egg Every Time

Honestly, it is genuinely easy to make the perfectly poached egg! Just follow this guideline and you will be an poached egg master:

  1. Boil a deep dish of water. Try to stay away from any shallow saucepans/pots and use a deep saucepan to obtain the perfect oval shape. Bring the water to a rolling boil.
  2. In the meantime, strain the egg. This one may sound strange, but will definitely help you achieve the perfect poached egg. Use a fine-mesh strainer to filter out the thinner and lighter egg whites that are runny almost like water.
  3. Place the egg in a bowl. Once the egg is strained, place it back into a small bowl until the water is boiled.
  4. Turn heat off. It is as simple as it sounds. Once the water has been brought to a rolling boil, turn off the heat.
  5. Add in vinegar. Add in 1 tsp. apple cider vinegar.
  6. Create the vortex. Using a spoon, swirl the water around to create a vortex. Then, carefully add in the egg into the center of the vortex.
  7. Cook for 3-4 minutes. I usually tend to lean towards the 3 minute cooking time. After 1 minute, scoop out any loose egg whites that have floated to the top of the water.
  8. Scoop out with a slotted spoon. The best method to scooping out the poached egg, without getting a bunch of water with it, is to use a slotted spoon.
