  • Summary

    This is an easy method for poached eggs. You can make as many as you need to. If you are poaching multiple eggs at a time, try not to crowd the water. It might be better to make more than one batch. Fresh eggs work best for this since they hold their shape better than older eggs. Think of the vinegar as a fail-safe. It helps to coagulate the whites and keeps their shape. If you do not want to add it, you can still make poached eggs without it.

    Ingredients

    • 1 fresh egg (or more)
    • 2 teaspoons white vinegar or rice wine vinegar, optional
