Poached eggs

Serves 4

Ingredients:

  • 4 eggs, room temperature (not cold)
  • 1 teaspoon vinegar per egg (4 total)
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. In a medium-sized saucepan, add about 3 inches of water and bring almost to a boil.
  2. Using a small bowl or cup, crack egg into bowl and add the vinegar. (The vinegar holds the whites together).
  3. Lower your bowl (or cup) into the water and carefully slip the egg into the water.
  4. You may use a spoon to push any egg whites back to the center of the egg, to keep the egg whites together.
  5. Cover the saucepan and remove it from the heat.
  6. Allow egg to sit for about 3-1/2 minutes, until it is cooked.
  7. Use a slotted spoon or a flat, slotted spatula to remove from the water. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  8. If cooking more than 1 egg at a time, cook for about 7 to 8 minutes, as more eggs will bring down the temperature of the water, and remember to add 1 teaspoon of vinegar to each cup/bowl of egg.

Hollandaise

Ingredients:

  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 stick butter, melted

  2. On low, blend the yolks.
  3. Slowly add the butter and continue blending on low.
  4. Add the juice of half a lemon, salt and cayenne pepper.
  5. Increase the speed for about a minute. Serve.
