This simple poached eggs recipe is sure to be simple and end in deliciousness. Poaching eggs in boiling water is the best way to poach an egg without vinegar.

The easy way to do this would be to bring a pot of water to a boil.

While youre doing that, crack your eggs into a bowl or small cup.

When the water is simmering, STIR quickly in one direction so that you the water is moving in a circular direction. Quickly add in an egg.. You need to do that while the water is going circular so that the egg whites wrap around the yolk perfectly.

Leave it for three minutes EXACTLY. Then take it out and either let it cool off and dry or dump it in a bowl of ice water so it doesnt over cook.

I put mine on top of an English muffin (or you can use toast) with avocado, bacon and cheese! YUM.. Take out the bacon for a delicious vegetarian recipe!
