Got eggs? Then you have the fixings for a great meal, as you'll see with the eggs recipes in these videos.
You Will Need
- A 3-quart skillet
- 1.0 tbsp white or cider vinegar
- A stove top
- An egg
- A small bowl
- A slotted spoon
- A kitchen towel
Add water and boil
Fill the skillet three-quarters full with water. Add the vinegar to the water and bring it to a boil.
Reduce heat to low
Reduce the heat to low so that the water is just at a simmer.
Slip egg into water
Break an egg into a small bowl and then slip the egg into the simmering water.
Allow egg to simmer
Allow the egg to simmer in the water for 3 to 4 minutes, depending on how firm you like your yolk.
Lift egg out
Turn off the heat and use the slotted spoon to gently lift the egg out of the water.
Place spoon on towel
Place the spoon—with the egg in it—on a folded kitchen towel.
When drained, place your perfectly poached egg in a bowl or on a piece of toast—and maybe on your list of favorite breakfasts, too.
