Laura's Poached Eggs

I have a soft spot in my heart for this healthy, tasty breakfast. As a young nine year old, I learned to make this meal. Unfortunately, I lost my mother at this age and my father taught me how to make the perfect poached egg breakfast. This is a bittersweet memory, but one that I now treasure.

Amaze your family with this classy breakfast that is really easy to make.

Ingredients for Laura's Poached Eggs

  • 4 Eggs
  • 2 pieces Bread, Toasted
  • 1/4 Cup Water

Laura's Poached Eggs

  1. Put 1.4 C water in a shallow pan. Heat to a low simmer.
  2. Add the eggs in the pan once you observe the tiny bubbles on the bottom of the pan.
  3. Let the eggs sit in the water until the egg whites look white instead of clear.
  4. Once you observe the egg whites turning white, start spooning the water over each egg four times to each. You will notice the egg yolk turning from a orange color to off white.
  5. Keep spooning water over the eggs to poach it. This should not take any longer than fifteen minutes.
  6. Put your bread in the toaster. Spoon on two eggs on each piece of toast.
  7. Serve your poached eggs with English muffins and spread on your favorite Jelly, cinnamon or peanut butter.

      It is also so healthy to poach instead of fry. They are soooo good.

      Peachpurple,

      I do make a mean poached egg. Sometimes in times of trouble, you learn to poach an egg.
