Poached Eggs

Image result for poached eggs

Fill a heavy shallow pan 2/3 full of water to which 1/8 tsp salt has been added.  Bring to boiling point.

Break eggs into a saucer and slip into gently boiling water.  Bring to simmering, remove from heat and cover.  Let stand about 5 minutes or until eggs are as firm as you want them.

Remove eggs carefully with a skimmer or perforated spoon and serve on toast.  Add salt and pepper to taste.

Egg poachers may be used to help keep the shape of the egg.

1 tbsp of vinegar may be added to each quart of water to help set the white of the egg.
