Beautiful Poached Eggs

A no fail way to make perfect poached eggs.
Servings: 1


  • Non-stick spray
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons white vinegar.
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  • Spray saucepan with a non-stick spray.
  • Fill saucepan with water about 3/4 full. Bring to boil. Reduce to simmer.
  • Add in 1 -2 teaspoons white vinegar (you will not taste it) with pinch of salt.
  • Crack eggs into bowl so you can slide them into simmering water. Use a spoon and swoop underneath to make sure they don’t stick to bottom.
  • Do not stir. Cover for three minutes. Do not take lid off.
  • Use slotted spoon to remove. Enjoy.


All eggs are different as are preferences. The size of the egg might change the time the eggs will be simmering. Check at 2.5 minutes and note that the eggs will continue to cook when you remove them. If the eggs are smaller size, sometimes they are done at 2 minutes. The three minutes works well for extra large eggs.
