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

  • Mine came out absolutely perfect. 3 minutes was perfect, runny yolks and totally solid whites. I’d never had poached eggs before and neither had my mom. We both loved them. Definitely won’t be my last time. I got more yolk cookin them this way then when I fry them and they weren’t over OR under cooked. My mom loved that they didn’t taste like oil and grease. This one’s going into my recipe book. 👍🏻⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️👍🏻

  • Salt reacts with the protein in the egg white as long as it hasn't coagulated, in water as seen here, separating, and if fried turning the egg grey and not appetizing to the eye. So never add salt to an egg before prepared, no matter how you prepare it.

  • You didn't "vortex" your water for the salted water..... Be fair is all. Swirl both salted, and non salted. I'm a breakfast cook on a college campus. I poach dozens daily. Try it again, equally. Swirl both.

  • It was interesting to see how you tested the various methods, e.g. with and without salt & vinegar. But I do agree that worrying about the shape of a poached egg is a "first world problem"! And also , we need to start considering how much energy it consumes to heat up all that water in the pan by poaching the egg in such a large bowl of deep water. There are much more energy efficient and environmentally friendly ways to poach an egg such as using a shallower pan, a shape retainer or in the micowave.
