Poached Eggs

Posted on: October 20, 2012

Ok, so how many of you actually cook poached eggs? Patricia loves my poached eggs and goes on about them to almost everybody! Whenever she has company from England, you can be sure I am making them poached eggs! I didn’t realize it was such a big deal! I have been making them since I was a teenager, so I thought everyone can make these! Here’s how I do it, it’s so easy and good for you!


  • 1 tbsp white vinegar
  • pinch salt
  • 2 eggs
  • toast or english muffins


  1. Bring a small pot with about 2-3 inches of water to boil. Add the vinegar and just a pinch of salt.
  2. When you have a rolling boil, crack the eggs in one at a time. Look at the clock and at exactly 3 minutes, take them out using a slotted spoon.
  3. Dry the bottom of the spoon on a paper towel which you have placed on a plate on the counter next to the stove.
  4. Place the egg on or beside your toast and enjoy!
