So, what is up with the egg, vinegar and All-Clad? Yep, perfect poached eggs!
It was much later in life that I discovered the joy of eggs in the morning! I love a toasted English muffin smothered with ketchup (don't gag!), bacon and a fried egg on top! Only some of my family members think this is wonderful.
Today, I was feeling like I needed a little extra care for breakfast and wanted a simple poached egg on a muffin. I used to poach eggs in the little egg poacher, you know where an egg is formed into a perfect-Stepford Wife- shape and ends up to be overcooked......or I have used the microwave egg poacher, that egg turns out like rubber everytime!
I've found that the Brits do the best egg poaching in my travels, wherever we are in the UK I find a perfect poached egg. There is an art to it. Do you want to hear it?
You boil the water (yes, you can do this!!), then add a tablespoon of vinegar. When the water boils, you make a vortex and drop your egg in.

Served below on a Happy Plate! That is part of the morning experience, breakfast must be served on my vintage Villeroy & Boch 'Provence' plate!
Don't you feel happy too?
