A Great Recipe To Poach 12 Eggs at Once.

Eggs are one of the most versatile foods to cook with and eat. They’re often a main ingredient in many recipes and can be cooked by themselves in lots of different ways. The fact that a dozen of them are inexpensive and widely available makes them a staple to have on hand. Plus, they make a great addition to main dishes or as a side accompaniment to a meal.

Even people who don’t happen to be master chefs can easily whip up a batch of scrambled, hard boiled, or fried eggs. However, when it comes to poaching an egg, that definitely falls on the more difficult side of the egg cooking-spectrum.

Poaching is a cooking method whereby a food is dropped and simmered in liquid. Usually water, milk, or some type of stock is used and it’s an ideal way to cook foods which tend to fall apart when cooked other ways. That’s why many recipes involving eggs, fish, chicken, and fruits are poached.

Mastering the technique can be tricky but if you follow the accompanying tutorial from the Food and Wine Test Kitchen’s Justin Chapple you’ll get it correct and soon you can be poaching up to 12 eggs simultaneously!

First off, you are going to need water, a muffin tin, and a dozen fresh large eggs. Start by pre-heating the oven to 350 degrees and then place one tablespoon of water in each of the cups on the muffin tin. Next, crack one egg into each slot, right on top of the water, and immediately place them into the heated oven.

Bake for 8-10 minutes and you’ll know they’re done if they match up with the following description- the egg white should be nice and firm and the yolk jiggly. To help keep them intact, use a slotted spoon to scoop them from the tin.

Also, if there’s any excess moisture simply place them on a paper towel lined plate and then sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. In the end, you should end up with neatly cooked egg whites that ensconce a still runny, slightly creamy, liquid yolk.

When you dig a fork into them and pierce the whites the yellow yolk will spill out and that’s what the ideal poached egg should look like. Bon Appétit!!
