I know that it does not come from the cookbook. Poached eggs are a perfect way to make eggs, hard or soft! Bring small pot of water to boil with 1/2 t of salt. crack up to 4 eggs into boiling water, lower heat and cover. set timer for 2 min and check on the eggs. As they become more done you will notice a change in the color of the yolk: from the dark yellow to the pale yellow of hard cooked eggs.When they are to your liking pour off the water and the eggs will be in a great form ready for eggs benedict or just on toast. I have pulled the pan off the heat, poured off the water and let them sit while getting other things ready. This made it possible to have them perfectly cooked and still warm. Ps. there is a smallish amount of white that separates but i just send it down the drain with the water.
