Cracked the secret of poached eggs — 4 Comments

  1. My husband loves poached eggs and has read up and tried all of the above tricks. For the most part he has the cooking down, but still has problems with draining them. Any tips?

  2. I used a slotted spoon to remove them from the water and drained them as well as I could. I then slipped them onto a saucer while I cooked 4 eggs. When I had all of them complete, I slipped them off the saucer onto the salad. I did have a bit of water on the saucer which I could tip before removing the egg which helped get off the water. I haven’t tried them on toast or bread where the water would be noticeable but they didn’t seem to have much water.

    I’ve seen a couple of sites with them putting the eggs on paper towels which looks like that would be really difficult to remove without breaking the egg.

  3. Marta, when I opened your blog and saw that gorgeous picture of the poached egg atop the bright green asparagus, my mouth immediately began to water! This is brunch on Sunday, for sure.
