Poached Eggs1. In a small skillet, pour in a 1/4 cup of water plus a sprinkle of salt and bring to an rolling boil.
2.(In Water Method) Gently crack an egg into small bowl or cup. (This is to make sure the egg is fresh/blood free, and that the yolk doesn't break on you!)
4. Let the egg boil for about 3-4 minutes, depending on how firm you like your yolk. Use a spatula to wiggle under the egg to prevent sticking.
5. While your egg is cooking, toast up your favorite slice of bread. When you egg is done, use a spatula to remove the poached egg from the water and set on a paper towel to absorb the excess water. Transfer to your toast and enjoy!
