Perfectly Poached Eggs Instructions
EGGS WHITES: Using a spatula, carefully nudge egg whites closer to their yolks. Do not touch the eggs after this point.
COOKING EGGS: Lower heat to Medium to Medium-High depeding on your stove; should be high enough to maintain a simmer while covered, but not boil. Cover pot with a lid and allow eggs to cook 3-4 minutes, depending on your desired degree of runniness, until whites have set and yolks are still soft.
MAKE-AHEAD TIPS: If making for a larger crowd, poached eggs can be made in advance. Simply cook eggs for 2-3 minutes, then place in an ice bath. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate. When ready to serve, place eggs in hot water for 1-2 minutes. Drain and serve.
