Perfect Poached Egg
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Poached eggs happily top roasted vegetables, oatmeal, and pasta and are often a part of some of my favorite winter creations.
  • 1 farm fresh egg
  • 1 T. red wine vinegar
  • water
  1. Fill your pot with enough water to cover the egg.
  2. Bring the water to a gentle boil.
  3. Add the red wine vinegar.
  4. Crack the egg into a small bowl and gently add to the boiling water. Adjust the stove temperature so the water remains at a gentle boil.
  5. Allow the egg to cook for approximately three minutes.
  6. Remove the egg from the pot with a fish spatula, allowed the excess water to drain. Give the egg a slight shake and check that the egg white is set. If not, cook slightly longer.
