So this is something I’ve been meaning to post for a while. A few weekends ago I made my first attempt to make poached eggs. Surprisingly, the first one worked out well but the second one was kind of sloppy.
I had no idea what to do so I went to Smitten Kitchen’s blog (http://smittenkitchen.com/2008/08/how-to-poach-an-egg-smitten-kitchen-style/) which in general is a good place to start if you want to make something but don’t know how. My sister introduced me to it and I really like the blog a lot.
Anyways, I’ve gotten this for brunch at a few places and figured it was about time to learn. The result was surprisingly good! See……….
