Chef John's Poached Eggs
Here's a new and improved version of our poached egg method. Nothing too complicated here; we pretty much poach eggs like everybody else, except we've got a little step in the middle that makes it easier if you're doing this for a larger group.
Recipe Summary test
Poached eggs in ice water can be refrigerated overnight if desired; just reheat before serving.
To reheat poached eggs, bring a pan of water to a bare simmer and slide eggs into simmering water until warmed through, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon; tap bottom of spoon on a dry towel before serving.
Try these with the Smoked Salmon Dill Eggs Benedict recipe.
