We all think poached eggs are simple and easy to make. The fact of the matter is, they are not. Like anything else, there is a knack to making them. I can’t count the countless hours I have spent fiddling and diddling trying to make the perfect poached eggs with little or no avail, until I came up with this method. Believe it or not, it’s so simple and easy. The great thing is, you can serve them up for any occasion.
Poached Eggs Made Perfect and Easy
There are a few other tricks. For example, make sure your eggs are fresh and at room temperature. Place each egg in a separate bowl before putting them in the water which ensures they will not break. Some people put vinegar in the water which makes the eggs a little more in uniform. You can also add a bit of oil or butter to the water. These methods help, but I often produce minimal benefits.
I always season the eggs with the sprinkle of salt and pepper, but you can use the spices of your choice. Give our poached eggs a try and let us know what you think.

Bring the water to a boil, Turn off the heat, place the eggs in, and allow them to poach for three minutes.
