How to Poach an Egg Perfectly Every Time

Ingredients 1 egg

Directions Bring a pot of water to a gentle boil, then salt the water. Meanwhile, crack an egg (or 2, or 3!) into a small cup.

With a spoon, begin stirring the boiling water in a large, circular motion.

When the water is swirling like a tornado, add the eggs. The swirling water will help the egg white wrap around itself as it cooks.

Cook for about 2 1/2 to 3 minutes.

Using a slotted spoon, remove the egg (or eggs) to a plate.
