My friend Miranda told me about this video that America’s Test Kitchen did on how to make the easiest poached eggs and I just had to try it out for myself:
I made my own video of the process and sure enough, it worked!
I brought the water up to a boil and turned off the heat. I put two eggs per ramekin and submerged them into the water. Put the lid on top of the pan. A few minutes later… Voila!
Now they did stick to the bottom of the pan a little, hence why the swirling is a little necessary but still. Super easy!
They used the same technique for cooking a lot of eggs at the exact same time so if you are cooking brunch for a lot of people this holiday, this may be the easiest way to make a ton of poached eggs at once.
