Practically Foolproof System for Poached Eggs – In Bulk or On Demand

Practically Foolproof System for Poached Eggs - In Bulk or On Demand

For years, my love of poached eggs was tempered by how hard I found it to make them consistently, perfectly, and in bulk. Most poaching methods I’ve seen are fine for one or two eggs, but what if you’re making Eggs Benedict for a family of six and need them all ready at the same time?

In this video, I show you the system I developed over the last few years as I learned from the methods of Alton Brown, America’s Test Kitchen, and my own experiments. Using this system, I can poach eggs in bulk (dozens, really) to either serve all at once, or to easily reheat later. I demonstrate this by making Eggs Benedict in just over 5 minutes.
