* How to cook poached egg?

In his book “Morning. 50 breakfasts "Alena Doletskaya tells about Italian know-how. In general, the egg poached - a purely French venture, but the Italians came up with a tricky kitchen gadget - small pans with holes. Lubricate them with vegetable oil, break an egg and dip the pans in boiling water in a saucepan or deep frying pan for 7–10 minutes.

If you do not want to bother looking for kitchen utensils, try the easiest way.Boil a small amount of water and reduce the heat to a minimum. Add a few drops of vinegar to the water. Break the egg into a spoon and transfer it from one spoon to another to drain excess liquid. After that, dip the egg in boiling water and cook for 3-4 minutes.
