How To Cook Perfectly Poached Eggs

I learned this trick a couple years ago for how to cook perfectly poached eggs from Julia Child. Once you try this method, you will just think…genius! And then you’ll have poached eggs for breakfast every other day like I did when I first learned this trick! For reals! All you need are three things:

  1. A pin (a safety pin or thumb tack will work)
  2. A timer (you can use the one on your phone)
  3. 10 seconds (this is the key right here!)

Of course you’ll also need a pot of water, a slotted spoon and eggs. But it’s those three key ingredients that make it life-changing perfectly poached eggs!

Check out the easy directions here for how to do it, and you’ll thank me later!

  1. Bring a pot of water to a boil.
  2. Using a pin, such as a safety pin or thumb tack, make a hole in the eggshell. This allows any air in the egg to be released, which may otherwise cause it to crack.
  3. Place the whole egg (still in the shell) in the boiling water for 10 seconds exactly, and quickly remove the egg from the water. Let the egg cool off for a minute. This is key to the Julia Child method because boiling the egg helps it to retain its shape once it’s cracked open for the poaching part.
  4. Bring the water to a simmer, and crack the egg into the simmering water. You can poach the egg as you normally would here. I like to poach it for about 3 minutes.

Try the Julia Child method or the perfectly poached eggs, and you’ll no longer be dealing with the wispy whites that pull away from the egg in the traditional poaching method.
