I poached some eggs! [Jun. 12th, 2012|12:22 pm]

I poached some eggs! I poached some eggs!


I followed this technique. They look like this while they're cooking.


I used Alton Brown's hollandaise recipe and grokked the technique from this video. You have to cook the yolks while whisking. I don't have a thermometer, and it was just me, so I tested the temperature with my finger.


These English muffins were not what I expected. I doubt they were even English.


For my first attempt, it was easier to get right than I expected.

And yes, I did eat cupcakes for breakfast, and then eggs benedict for lunch.

I can't boil an egg but I find it quite easy to poach them. I buy the hollandaise though..

I have no idea why I never tried. Poached eggs are one of my favorite things. (So is hollandaise.)

Cupcakes and poached eggs?

Sounds like a solid nutritional plan to me!

Good, I was concerned they looked like weird googly eyes.

Nope on googly eyes I swear, they did trip my visual trigger for YUM SWEET EAT ME at very first glance! Your cupcakes on the other hand looked just as lovely but not-sweet. Neato!

Interesting! I guess the eggs do look dessert-like. And your instincts are correct ~ the cupcakes really aren't sweet. The icing is, but I went easy on that. (I love cake, but I quickly get a headache from the sugar.)

I'm all about what you did, sugar/starch doesn't work for my poor body and making eggs etc. look exciting is sort of the main job in the kitchen at this point. Thanks for the inspiration. :)
