Poached egg recipe:
The culinary trick is to boil the water constantly, but very weakly. To do this, put a cool, shallow saucepan on low heat and pour about 2.5 cm of water that has just boiled. When small bubbles appear on the surface of the water, the water is ready.

It is better to break the egg into a bowl, examine it, and only then pour it into a saucepan. As slowly as the water boiled before, the eggs should be boiled for 1 minute. Then remove the pan from the stove and leave the eggs in hot water for another 10 minutes.

Take out the finished eggs with a slotted spoon. Serve immediately after preparation.
