The best part about poached eggs: perfect runny yolks cascading down your plate like edible lava. The worst part: everything else.

But there's an easy way to make poached eggs without stressing over timing, how much vinegar to add or just how rapidly your water should be simmering. Better yet, you can poach enough for a crowd at once without having to perch next to the stove with a book. The secret?

Poach a dozen eggs at the same time by cooking them in a muffin tin.

Put a tablespoon of water in each muffin cup, then crack the eggs one at a time into a separate bowl before slipping them into the water-filled partitions—or, if you're confident in your no-shell skills, crack each egg straight into each partition.
