Slow Poached Eggs (with a twist)

Wednesday, April 25, 2012

A perfectly poaches egg can totally make up for anything; from a bad night sleep to a mad day at work, even kids screaming. Since last November when I finally learned how to poach an egg in the creamiest of ways, I started to experiment with different techniques. Balazs says that Julia Child gave me an inner egg-making-confidence. We’ve been having them on toasts with herbs, on bagels and roasted asparagus, with salads and even on top of a sliced avocado. So good, you should try it!

Anyway, last night I spotted Steph's really impressive recipe for a slow poached egg and I can’t wait for the weekend to try it out on my mom who is flying in tomorrow.

Steph says that it’s one of the easiest ways to poach eggs with a great twist in the end. You don’t actually crack your eggs, you simply cook them like you would cook onsen eggs in the shells, in 145F water for a whopping 45 minutes. The cool part is that you can make a few of them in the same time or prep them the night before and just warm them up on the go. According to Steph, the end result is totally impressive because as you crack the ready egg open, the creamy poached consistence simply slides out of the shell onto your plate – giving the whole thing a wow factor. Oh boy, I’m hungry!

Wait, there is more. With this technique you can even make a pan fried version of your poached egg as well. Here is how!

Loves, how do you like your egg in the morning? (I bet you’re craving it right now - giggle). xo

I AM craving it now.I like my yolks done all the way through but my husband would probably like these.
This week we've been eating them scrambled with onions and fresh basil because I had a mountain of it to use up. I've been putting them on toast with avocado and manchego cheese, very very tasty :)

Oh my gosh. These look absolutely amazing. Such good tips on poaching eggs!

Poached eggs are my favorite! I also like soft boiled and over easy - anything with a runny yolk. I find that I eat them for lunch and dinner more often than breakfast. I love them on a pile of roasted veggies, or topping off a bowl of noodles or rice. Sooo good! I'm not always the best at making them though so I will have to try these tricks. :)

Think I might try them! On an english muffin w/ avocado sounds good.

Oh yum, Cara and Jeanette, I LOVE the idea of pairing it up with avocado and manchego cheese. That sounds like a scrumptious combo. I must give it a go:) Thanks!
