Easiest and best eggs ive made thank you . - 20 Jul 2015


This is the first time I have ever made a poached egg. I followed the instructions exactly. I left eggs in water while taking photos and then put them on a plate to photograph. So by the time I cut into them, the yolks were not runny. I will have to figure out how many minutes to cook them so that the white is cooked but the yolks are partially runny, the way I like them. This gives me the courage to make Eggs Benedict. Thanks, deanne, for teaching me to make poached eggs. - 01 May 2013
