How to Make Poached Eggs in Ramekins
Eggs are a great start to the day for both kids and adults but you can easily mix and match additional ingredients to create a perfect dinner, lunch or even brunch entree.
That’s the beauty of this Easy Poached Eggs Recipe. It only takes about 10 minutes (or less) to make and the only equipment you’ll need are several small ramekins — glass (Pyrex) or ceramic–it really doesn’t matter–and a deep frying pan with cover.
Regardless, of whether you have glass or ceramic ramekins, start by greasing the ramekins with non-stick spray, then place them in the frying pan. Next, break the eggs and place one in each ramekin.
Cooking Tip: The frying pan should hold at least four to six ramekins. But, if you don’t have a deep frying pan or if you need to feed a crowd, you can use an electric skillet with a cover.
Add water to the pan, one third of the way up the side of the ramekins. Make sure water level is over the height of the eggs.
Cover the pan and bring the water in the pan to a boil. Lower heat slightly if water rises to the edge of the ramekins. Boil for 10 minutes or until eggs are firm (less if you like your eggs a bit runny).
When the eggs are cooked, carefully remove each ramekin from the pan with a tongs, because it will be very hot.
To release the poached eggs from the ramekins, shake the ramekin slightly with tongs onto a plate.
Serve with your favorite sides or recipes. Enjoy!
