To make poached eggs, here is a simple method you can follow:

  1. Fill a medium-sized saucepan with water and bring it to a simmer over medium heat.
  2. Add a splash of vinegar to the water (this helps the egg whites to set quickly).
  3. Crack a fresh egg into a small bowl or ramekin.
  4. Using a spoon, create a gentle whirlpool in the simmering water.
  5. Carefully slide the egg into the center of the whirlpool.
  6. Let the egg poach for about 3-4 minutes for a soft yolk or longer for a firmer yolk.
  7. Use a slotted spoon to remove the poached egg from the water and place it on a paper towel to drain excess water.
  8. Season with salt and pepper before serving.

Enjoy your delicious homemade poached eggs!
