2. Get The Best Poached Eggs
Fill the pot with water and cook over medium heat. Add 1 tbsp. of white distilled vinegar. Crack the egg in a cup and lower it into the water. Using a wooden spoon, swirl the water around the egg. After 2 minutes, using a slotted spoon, pull the egg out of the water and feel the white. Then gently place your perfectly poached egg on a paper towel. You’re ready to serve!

Have guests over and want to whip up a bunch of sandwiches? Just crack a few eggs in a pre-greased tin tray and season them with your choice of toppings. Bake them in the oven at 250° for about 12-15 minutes. When you take them out, you will have the perfect eggs to go in those sandwiches.

With this trick, you will be able to keep the eggs fresh for longer and cooking will be a lot less messy. Break the eggs into a bowl and whisk the whites and yolks together.
