A basic and classic egg dish. A poached egg is an egg that has been cooked by poaching in water.


  • 1 Ounce White Vineger
  • 1 Large Egg
  • Water


Step 1

Crack an egg into a glass bowl.

Step 2

Fill up a pot with water. Turn the heat onto high. Pour in an ounce of white vinegar.

Step 3

Once the water reaches a boil, turn it down to medium-high heat so that the surface of the water is just lightly breaking. You don't want it rapidly boiling.

Step 4

Stir the water in a circular motion, creating a whirlpool. Pour the egg into the center of the whirlpool. The egg should stay in the center of the pot, wrapping the white around the yolk.

Step 5

Prepare a bowl of cold water. After 45 seconds to a minute, remove the egg from the pot, and place into the bowl of cold water. After a few seconds, the egg should be cool. Remove the egg from the cold water, and pat dry. Remove any excess egg white hanging off, and serve.

Step 6

If done properly, the yolk should should be runny.
