We have an Amazon credit card, which is great for getting points on Amazon.com. Usually I use the points to buy used books, but a few weeks ago I had enough points saved to buy myself a big treat -a stainless egg poacher. :-) I know I'm a goofball, but what can I say? I love perfectly poached eggs! Of course, anyone with a pot of water can poach eggs, which is exactly how I used to do it (with the help of some apple cider vinegar), but sometimes the whites would stick to the bottom of the pan, or the yoke would break in the water. Still, getting an egg poacher was a luxury. Some people shop for a nice dress now and then, some people like jewelry, when I get some credit I want to buy an egg poacher. :-)
Here's how I do it:
I fill the egg poaching pan with about an inch of water and put it over
Meanwhile, I place the poaching parts on the counter, and put some coconut oil (or Ghee) in each cup, followed by one egg.
When the water begins to boil I lift the poaching parts and place them in the pan, cover with the lid, turn the heat to medium, and set the timer.
For eggs that look like these I let them steam for about 5 minutes.
