I recently discovered, for myself of course, steam poached eggs.
I’ve also discovered that for a quick egg and toast meal, I really like them.
Start off with a vessel for the water (make sure you have a cover for it) and for the egg you’re going to cook. I’m using a wok and small porcelain cup. The latter is nice and smooth on the inside and the egg comes out easily when using a silicone spatula.
You only need enough water to go up to about halfway on the vessel/cup you’ll use for the egg. Put your cup in the water, add a little butter to the cup if you want a bit of buttery flavor and the water to a boil while covered.
Once the water starts to boil, drop in the egg and re-cover.
Start a timer for 2 1/2 minutes. Vary the time depending on how soft or hard you like your egg yolks.
When the timer goes off, your egg should be done.
Remove the cup from the water, a silicone hot pad works well, scoop the egg out with a small spatula and eat.
