POACHED EGGS | how to poach an egg (perfectly)

Poached eggs are a beautiful thing. The whites are just firm enough on the outside to contain an oozy, golden yolk in a round little egg package. And they make for a delicious, healthy breakfast. With a few tips, you too can learn how to poach an egg perfectly every time!

  • Hi guys! For those of you who may be a little intimidated with making poached eggs at home, I hope today's tutorial will show you just how easy it is! You can store poached eggs for 4-5 days in the fridge (see more tips in the recipe post), so they're also great for meal prep! What's your favorite breakfast with poached eggs? xo - Lisa

    • @Dave Be Bear ROFLMAO. Only a halfwit needs instruction on how to cook eggs. And any one who worries how they look needs to get a life. And only a pitiful loser would defend it. I've got toy cars that are easier to wind up.

  • Breakfast looks great. Eggs kept in the fridge are thinner due to the low temp. Room temp. eggs seem to keep their shape better. My question: eggs from fridge or eggs at room temperature for poaching?

  • I'm a breakfast cook by trade and not once have I ever trimmed the whites to get rid of the "wispies" .. not once. Can't do that when there's 15 benedicts on the board. You also let your water get too cold. And the eggs are never fresh that morning from the store.

  • Great video. Currently, my poached eggs are terrible. I will follow the instructions. Good poached eggs are absolutely yum. In Germany, they put a poached egg on top of some chopped potatoes when served with your schnitzel. Absolutely heaven.

  • That's helpful, if a bit labor intensive. I use two chemicals, which give fair success: Veg oil to coat the pan, so the egg doesn't stick, and acetic acid to coagulale the white ablmuen (that much vinegar would leave a noticeable taste).

  • I thought I was bad at poaching eggs, now i realise I'm somewhat of an expert, even in the microwave. But they still don't taste as good as in the restaurant. Maybe they're just experts from practice. Practice does something to the results in most aspects of life.

  • I loved how she seems to have left out just placing the eggs in boiling water for 4 minutes. I add a little butter(real butter) in a bowl and a dash of salt. The most difficult part is cracking the shell and separating the shell from the egg, and it isn't hard with a spoon. Hmm!

  • I poach my eggs by making a little cup out of aluminum foil. I form a piece of foil on an upside-down glass then trim it. I spray the inside of my foil cup with cooking oil and put it in the boiling water to get hot. When hot enough, I drop my egg inside it. Eggs cook very fast this way.

  • Happy to see all my tips made it into your video 😁 One thing : instead of plopping the eggs into the water from a height, dip the ramekin slightly into the hot water and slide out the egg. Less clouds of egg white and less chance of breaking the yolk.
