Instructions Checklist
  • Fill a deep, wide skillet with enough salted water to reach a depth of 2 inches. Bring to a gentle simmer over medium heat. Crack 1 egg into a small bowl, then slip into the simmering water; let cook until barely translucent. Using a slotted spoon, gently gather the egg into the center of the skillet and cook until the yolk feels like a water balloon when lifted out of the water, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a damp kitchen towel and repeat with the remaining eggs.

  • Trim the egg white of any ragged edges, if desired. Serve immediately. (If not serving the eggs immediately, place the poached eggs in an ice-water-filled bowl for up to 30 minutes. Reheat in simmering water for 30 seconds before serving).
