Poached Eggs

This method works well for me.

4-5 eggs
1/4 cup distilled vinegar

Fill a 12-inch skillet, or large pan with a couple inches of water. Bring to a boil and add vinegar. Reduce to a gentle simmer.

Break each egg into a small cup. Gently add the egg to the water, tipping the edge of the bowl into the water.

4 minutes – soft set
5 minutes – medium
8 minutes – hard
(I like to flip the eggs over about half way through cooking but it is not really necessary)

Remove with a slotted spoon, drain on a clean dish towel or blot with a towel/paper towel.
