This is the only method I use for the best poached eggs, you will never go wrong with this recipe! you may of coarse increase the eggs to whatever amount desired, the addition of a small amount of milk will create a softer egg :)

I knew, without a doubt, that Kitten would guide me thru making poached eggs, for the first time I might add, without a hitch - I was not disappointed. I like poached eggs but have always been afraid of trying to prepare them, but with Kitten's help I was able to make an elegant breakfast for my DH and myself this morning - thank you so much, again, Kitten for your guidance.
