As a beginner cook, I learned to make ‘cheater poached eggs’ in place of real poached eggs. They’re SO easy! You’ll need:
- a large skillet, with a lid
- custard cups or small oven proof dishes (one per egg)
- non-stick spray
- rubber spat or knife
- salt & pepper, to taste
Spray the custard cups with non-stick spray, then break an egg into each of the cups.
Remove the cups from the water with tongs. Run a rubber spat or knife around the edge of the egg and turn the egg out onto a serving plate. A dash of salt and pepper and you are all set!
