How To Poach an Egg
Step 1: Boil Water and Vinegar
Bring water and vinegar to a boil in a large skillet. (Vinegar makes the egg whites firm faster.)
Step 2: Break Eggs
Reduce heat to a simmer. Break eggs; slip into water one at a time.
Step 3: Cook Eggs
Cook 3 to 5 minutes. Remove eggs with a slotted spoon. Trim, if desired.
