Even the plate looks like it's smiling when poached eggs are served! :)

Feeding puppy Lola an egg a day means I get lots of opportunities to make poached eggs.

While the egg might not need to look pretty, it’s more practical if it comes out well. Plus, even our dog likes it best when the egg yolk is still runny.

 

Easy way to poach an egg

1) In a small pot, bring water to simmer.

2) Swirl the water around in one direction and place pot back onto heat.

3) When the water slows down enough so the bubbles come up again, plop the egg right in the middle of the pot. The slow swirl should keep the egg tight around the center.

4) Make sure the egg floats. If it looks like the egg is stuck to the bottom of the pot, scrape it free with a spoon.

5) Cover the pot, turn off the heat and let it sit until the water cools down enough for the egg to be at eating temperature.

6) Scoop out the poached egg carefully with a big spoon.
