I promised on Monday to show how a poached egg is made. And the entire process is inside, in a series of pictures. It's definitely not complicated. If anything, I'd say it's the easiest way of preparing an egg. What you do is to heat up water until it boils, then turn down the temperature a bit. Crack the egg into the water. Let it boil for 5-6 minutes.
It looks more messy than it is, very little of the egg white actually drifts away. I like the poached egg. It reminds me of a fried egg in its shape, and I use it as such right below. But it's really a boiled egg.
