The Egg Poacher

January 18, 2018

For my birthday a few months ago, Big Sista gifted me a PoachPod, which is an egg poaching silicone pod. She knows I love eggs and eat them every morning for breakfast, so this was the perfect present.
FYI, I have unsuccessfully tried poaching eggs exactly twice in my life. There's something about vinegar and carefully dropping and retrieving the egg with a slotted spoon. I suppose it can be easy but the PoachPod is heaps easier.
All you need is to do is:
  1. boil 1.5 inches of water in a pan/pot with a lid
  2. spray pod with a non-stick cooking spray and crack egg into pod
  3. place pod in pot and place lid on top
  4. let poach for 3-5 minutes
  5. remove by gently flipping over to serve
And while I still enjoy eating my eggs either soft boiled, scrambled or over easy in the morning, I do enjoy a good poached egg on salads these days. 
My favorite combos: 
  • arugula + poached egg + avocado + balsamic vinegar + olive oil + parmesan + salt & pepper
  • baby kale + this mustard vinaigrette + avocado + broccoli + poached egg
  • baby kale/arugula + roasted broccoli + avocado + tomatoes + green goddess dressing
