How To Cook Poached Eggs

Poached eggs are a classic dish that is easy to make and can be served with a variety of accompaniments. This simple method will help you achieve perfectly poached eggs every time.


• 2-3 eggs
• 2-3 tablespoons white vinegar
• 2-3 teaspoons salt


1. Fill a medium-sized pot with enough water to cover the eggs when added. Bring the water to a boil over high heat.

2. Once the water is boiling, reduce the heat to low-medium. This will help keep the water from boiling too vigorously and breaking the eggs.

3. Add the vinegar and salt to the water. The vinegar helps keep the egg whites from spreading and the salt helps the egg whites to set.

4. Crack each egg into a separate bowl or cup.

5. Gently lower the eggs into the water. Use a spoon to help guide the egg into the water if necessary.

6. Cook the eggs for 3-4 minutes, or until the whites are set.

7. Remove the eggs from the water with a slotted spoon and place them onto a plate.


Poached eggs can be served with toast, roasted vegetables, greens, or any other accompaniment of your choice. Enjoy!
