Poached Eggs

Poached Eggs

Prep Time: 3 minutes
Cook Time: 3 minutes
Servings: 4

Poached eggs paired with buttered toast make a comforting breakfast any day of the week. For a fanciful brunch dish, try a delicious twist on the classic eggs Benedict: Arrange slices of smoked salmon on toasted brioche, top with a poached egg and hollandaise sauce, and garnish with a sprinkling of caviar and chives.


Fill an egg-poaching pan with 1/2 inch water, set over medium heat and bring to a simmer. Lightly oil the poaching cups and warm the cups in the pan. Crack an egg into each cup, cover the pan and cook to the desired doneness, 2 to 4 minutes; repeat to make 8 poached eggs.

Transfer the eggs to individual plates, season with salt and pepper, and serve immediately. Serves 4.
