So today I’m going to share to you how I poach an egg. If you follow me on Twitter, you would’ve probably noticed how much I love watching the movie Julie and Julia over and over without getting tired of it. I actually never poached an egg before—but I decided to give it a try and see if it actually tastes like milk cheese (according to Julie).
- No oil = lesser calorie-intake
- Tastes really fresh, contrary to my initial thought of eating some kind of a disgusting embryotic membrane
- Perfect for breakfast
Poaching an egg is basically boiling an egg to me…just without the shell. So duh, you crack it open and cook it. What I do is bring a pan of water to a boil, and then crack the egg open, and drop it in. With a woodle saddle, I “push the white” towards to yolk quickly (as told by Julia in the movie) and then for about 3-4 minutes of simmering. When the egg looks cooked to me, I take a spatula and take it out from the water. I make sure the yolk is still runny—that way I get it reaaaaaal good.

P.S. It does taste like milk cheese.
