I brought my water and salt to a boil, then turned it down a bit.
I had cracked my eggs onto a paper plate and sat them aside.
The whole idea is to slide the eggs, gently,into the water.
The salt sets the yolk, and the water cooks the egg. Four minutes cooks the whites fairly solid, but the yolk is still slightly soft.
Since my granddaughter was at my house and she has problems with eating certain foods, she requested poachd eggs for breakfast.
I had never made a poached egg before, but online instructions seemed pretty straightforward. The process is fairly easy. Small pan. Plate. Water. Salt. Eggs.
