Poached Egg on Toast

Poached Egg on Toast

by Pam on September 1, 2014

I finally did it! It took three attempts but I really did it! What you ask? I poached an egg in simmering water with a bit of vinegar and no poaching cup. This may not be a big deal to some, but it is to me. For some reason this technique of egg poaching has always intimidated me so I just used poaching cups. I am so glad I finally faced my poaching fear and did it. The egg turned out perfect! I think I actually did a little dance in my kitchen when I lifted the lid on my third attempt and it worked!

Combine 1 1/2 inches water and vinegar in a wide medium sized saucepan and bring to a simmer.

Break 1 egg into a small bowl. Once the water is at a simmer, stir the water with the bottom of your slotted spoon clockwise to make a swirling motion in the water. Quickly and carefully slide egg into the water. Cover and turn stove off. Poach until whites are firm and yolks are still runny, 3 minutes and 45 seconds. Remove the egg using a slotted spoon and drain a bit over the pan. Place onto a piece of buttered toast then season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
