Poached egg on avocado toast on a plate

A Perfectly Poached Egg

If you follow me on Instagram you know this is my favorite way of cooking eggs. I get tons of questions about how to poach an egg. It's really very simple and it gets a lot easier with practice. Here is my step-by-step guide.


Fresh Organic Eggs

White Vinegar



Add 1 teaspoon salt and 2 teaspoons vinegar to a pot of water. Simmer over medium heat. Crack a fresh cold egg into a small bowl. Use the handle of a spatula or a spoon to quickly stir the water in one direction creating a whirlpool. Carefully drop the egg into the center of the whirlpool. Turn off the heat, cover the pan and set your timer for 5 minutes. Remove the egg with a slotted spoon and serve immediately.
