Eggs are synonymous with quick and easy breakfasts, especially scrambled. But poached eggs tend to get pushed to weekends--if cooked at all. All too often, the eggs end up falling apart in the boiling water, leading to undersized, unsatisfying breakfasts. And the water swirling trick doesn’t always work. The result? The daunting reputation of poached eggs proceeds them, making most people skip this cooking method altogether.
It’s time to reintroduce this delicious version to your breakfast repertoire, and this is just the hack to help out. Use this trick and you’ll have restaurant-worthy eggs in less than 5 minutes. All you need is a cup and some cling wrap. Yes, really! The cling wrap forms a foolproof package that keeps the eggs together as they cook. What you get is that firm white and warm, gooey yolk--every time. Give your whisk a break and try this trick tomorrow morning; you’ll be glad you did.
