I've tried so many different methods of poaching eggs and failed every time, until now. These turned out perfectly!!!

Worked like a charm! I only did one egg so scaled the water, vinegar and salt way back. Thanks! Made for My 3 Chefs event.

  1. Crack 6 eggs in a small bowl and set aside.
  2. Put 2 quarts water in a 3 quart saucepan and bring to a medium boil.
  3. Add 1/4 cup white vinegar and 1 teaspoon salt.
  4. With a slotted spoon, while the water is boiling, start the water swirling around in a clockwise direction as fast as it will go without slopping out of the pan.
  5. While the water is spinning let it coast while pouring the eggs into the center of the spin.
  6. After 3 minutes, bring the eggs out of the water with the slotted spoon and place on plate with paper towel.
