When it comes to cooking eggs perfectly, most people struggle with poached eggs. Poached eggs are difficult, often even for chefs. This is why we bring you one tip that can help you poach your eggs perfectly each time!

How to Poach Eggs Perfectly

Start with a pot of water set to boil on the stove. Add salt and vinegar to the water. 

When water comes to a boil, swirl it with a spoon and quickly set a strainer on top of the pot. Break an egg into the strainer and allow it to start setting. After 1 minute, dunk the strainer into boiling water and allow the egg to cook for 3-4 minutes. Now take the strainer out and use a spoon to scoop out your perfectly poached egg.

Depending on how well cooked or runny you like the yolk in your poached egg, you may vary the cooking time.
