Poached egg somebody?

Have you ever made poached egg?

Well I challenged myself the other day to make it and I was pleasantly surprised at the end result. Considering I don’t even eat egg yolks mainly because of a dairy intolerance I wasn’t sure how I would ingest it or make it successfully. But being the amateur “barefoot contessa” or so I’ve been called : ) I tried it and it came out splendid. Here the recipe:


  • table spoon of vinegar
  • 1.5 cups water
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1 teaspoon on salt
  • 1 small pot
  • 1 ramkin
  • spoon
  1. Pour the cup of measured water in a pot along with the vinegar and salt. Allow it to come to a boil
  2. in a clockwise fashion stir the pot until it creates a whirlpool shape
  3. crack the egg and place in a ramekin or small bowl
  4. while the water is moving in a circular motion pour the egg in the center of the motion
  5. set a lid on the pot and wait for 5 mins then scoop the egg out with a porous spoon and serve how you like it.
