Meet the easiest way to poach eggs—just drop 'em right into a sous vide water bath. The texture is different than your standard poached egg; it's creamy and custardy throughout both the yolk and white. This recipe makes six eggs, but you could use any number of eggs you like! The ratio for the outcome is 1:1, meaning that for every egg you put in, you get a cooked one out.
- Makes 6
- Active Time
- 2 minutes
- Total Time
- 40 minutes
- 6 large eggs
- Clip (or stand) sous vide machine to a tall large pot. Fill pot with warm water. Turn on machine and heat water to 153°F. Not 155°F—not 150°F. 153°F.
- Gently lower eggs into water. (We like to put each one in a spoon and lower it in just to make sure it doesn’t crack.) Cook 25 minutes.
- Transfer eggs to an ice bath and let cool. Transfer to an airtight container and chill; they'll keep in the fridge for about a week.
- When you want to eat one warm (though there is nothing wrong with eating a cold, poached egg), use sous vide machine set to 150°F or a small pot of hot water to heat it up for a few minutes. Then crack it into a bowl or small container so that you can drain off any water or floating albumin before you plate your pretty egg.
