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.
Crack the eggs individually in a separate small bowl
Bring the water to a boil, Turn off the heat, place the eggs in, and allow them to poach for three minutes.
Place the egg on plate lined with a paper towel to drain off any excess water.
Serve your poached eggs over toast or English muffin with a base of ham and Hollandaise sauce. Enjoy!
