The Best Poached Eggs Are Thanks To A Clever TikTok Trick
No matter how you enjoy your poached eggs, a simple solution can revolutionize them: A soup ladle. This provides a gentle and controlled environment for the eggs as they cook.
Simply crack an egg into an oiled or greased ladle and let any excess whites drain away, or crack the egg into a sieve and allow the watery whites to pass through.
Then, lower the ladle into a pot of gently simmering water, allowing the egg to cook in the protected well. This prevents the whites from spreading out too much and becoming stringy.
