~Simmering in Unfamiliar Water~

Attempt Number One!

A GOOGLE recipe said, "Place Egg on a piece of paper towel!" NEVER AGAIN

Attempt 3 since I broke the yolk on Attempt 2... Don't Ask & I won't tell you! LOL

Attempt 4... FINALLY I SEE A GHOST! Attempt 3 didnt work out!

End Result! I was scared the yolk would be running after I sliced it open... But...


Well today I woke up & cooked breakfast. While cooking breakfast, I remembered that I wanted to learn how to "POACH AN EGG" like Julie did in the movie "Julie & Julia". So since I watched the movie maybe moments before cooking I decided to do it... So to find a quick recipe I GOOGLED ONE! But here is my REVISED version of it!

1. Boil about 3 to 4 inches of water in a pot... Add a little salt
2. Once the water starts to boil, crack open an egg in a cup or bowl... Set the egg aside until the water is completely boiling
3. Take the Cup or Bowl of Egg and pour it into the water
4. The water should cover the egg so that you can see a "Ghost"
5. Now it depends on how long you want the Egg to stay in there but I allowed it to boil for 5 to 7 minutes... Take a spoon with holes and scoop the egg out and place on a plate
6. Slice open the yolk and add garnishments to your liking! ENJOY!

Sends Text Message: "Honey we need more EGGS!"


  1. It was so DELICIOUS! I usually have a hard time trying new recipe so I had to take the challenge. Used a lot of eggs, but it was totally worth it!
