How to Poach Eggs :

Fresh eggs work best for poaching. Their whites hold together better than older eggs. Some people put a little vinegar in the poaching water—the vinegar helps the proteins in the egg whites coagulate. But the vinegar does affect the taste.

Fill a saucepan with several inches of water. Heat the water on high until it reaches a boil and then lower the heat until the water is at a bare simmer (just a few bubbles coming up now and then).

Crack egg into a small bowl and gently slip it into the water:

Working with the eggs one at a time, crack the egg into a small bowl or cup. Place the bowl close to the surface of the hot water and gently slip the egg into the water.

Turn off heat, cover pan, set timer for 4 minutes:( Depending on Eggs size) Gently lift the poached eggs out of the pan with a slotted spoon and place on a plate to serve.
