The Perfect Poached Egg!



Recently one of my girlfriends gave me some fresh eggs, straight from her chicken coup in her back yard. They looked too perfect to eat, and certainly too beautiful to put in any old recipe. What to do? I decided it was the perfect time to get out my new "Eggshell" poacher and eat these little jewels all by themselves.



The "Eggshell" comes with two silicone egg cups. Fill a pot with 2 to 3 inches of water. Bring water to a boil and float the "Eggshell" containing one egg in the water. Reduce heat to medium. Place the lid on the pan and cook for 4 to 6 minutes, depending on how firm you like your egg.



Remove "Eggshell" from the water. Run spoon around the inside of the cup and pop out your perfectly poached egg!
I love a poached egg, but usally end up with mostly egg yolk since my whites are left floating all over the water. These little silicone cups were perfect and kept my eggs completely intact!



Two thumbs up for this Perfect Product - The "Eggshell".

My poached eggs end up looking like egg drop soup by the time I am done with them!

Just add vinegar to the water. Give it a couple quick stirs to set up a whirlpool-like effect and then put the eggs in. easy-peasy...
