Poach A Dozen Eggs At Once With A Muffin Tin

Poaching a lot of eggs at once using the traditional method is time-consuming (not to mention tough). With a muffin tin, you can poach a dozen at once with no problem.

Justin Chappele from Food & Wine explains how in the above video. If you don't want to watch the video, here are the steps you need to follow:

  1. Pour 1 tablespoon of water into each cup.
  2. Crack an egg over the water in each cup.
  3. Put the pan in a 350 degree oven for 8-10 minutes.
  4. Use a slotted spoon to scoop the eggs out.
  5. Check that the whites are nice and firm, then serve or store in your fridge.

With this technique you can make enough eggs to easily serve at a brunch or other event. If you don't need a dozen eggs, use a smaller muffin tin or just leave some of the cups empty.

    What is a "slotted" spoon?

      A serving spoon that has slots or holes, so the liquid doesn't get picked up with the food.

    I gave this a burl this morning with Hollandaise sauce, cooked spinach leaves, and parsley in the sauce, over a toasted muffin. Many a brownie point was earn't from the wife today. :)

      I've always wondered if someone has tried to cash in their "brownie points" by asking "hun... can you make some brownies with all those points I've accumulated?" :P
