This morning I felt like poached eggs for brekkies, and I didn't feel like going out to a restaurant. Can't be that difficult to make, I thought. Now, I can make delish soup, and stew, and I've been known to do a good omellette (occasionally). But, poached eggs is something new. So, off to google I went. This is what I got - http://simplyrecipes.com/recipes/easy_poached_eggs/. I like that they have pictures. I did use the mason jar ring because I was afraid I would make a congealed mess if I plonked the eggs straight into the boiling water. I did not use vinegar - just straight water. It worked! My poached eggs looked the same as the picture depicted on the linked recipe. Really! It did. I can now make poached eggs. They are less fattening, and one gets a better taste of the yummy yolk.
