Sunny Poached Eggs

Poached eggs on home made lightly toasted bread with a cup of green tea, that was my breakfast today on this grey morning with the eggs being the only sunny thing. It feels like winter today for the first time, usually my back room is bathed in sunshine but not today. Its a waiting for rain day and that's good because we have not had a good soaking rain in quite a while, so if the 60% chance of rain that they forecast is correct then we should have a good show, well fingers crossed.

Poached Eggs [eggs in a bag]


In a small pot half fill with water and simmer on low heat add a good pinch of salt and about 2 Tbl vinegar.
When its a low simmer [do not boil] crack 1 egg into a small bowl or ramekin, swirl the water in a circle and slide the egg in, keep the swirl going and do the same for the second egg.
Keep them spinning in the pot for about 3 mins.
I never measure or time the cooking of the eggs, after you have made them a few times you will know when they are done.

Why i call them eggs in a bag, well because the sunny yellow yolk is in a bag of white.
If you have not made these before or not for a long time then give them a whirl, you wont be disappointed.
Try to use as fresh an egg as possible as the older they are the more the white separates in the pot. Those two eggs came from my girls this morning.
