You can put a poached egg on almost anything along with just eating them by themselves. Eggs benedict, over a grain bowl, a salad, over a bowl of lentils and greens, or over potato hash or ice pilaf.

  • 2 Cups Water
  • 2 Teaspoons Vinegar
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 4 Eggs Divided
  • Freshly Ground Pepper
  1. Fill large-size saucepan with water. Add vinegar and kosher salt. Bring to boil over a medium-high heat. Reduce heat to simmer.
  2. Crack 1 egg into small-size bowl. Carefully slip into saucepan from just above the water. Working quickly, repeat with 3 more eggs, to cook 4 at once. Gently scoop the whites toward the yolks for a more compact and circular shape. Simmer gently, without stirring, 4 to 5 minutes until eggs are done to your liking.
  3. Using a slotted spoon, carefully transfer eggs to plate lined with paper towels. Trim off any trailing egg whites.
  4. While still warm, transfer eggs to plates. Season with freshly ground pepper.
  5. Serves 2
