Poached Eggs for a Crowd – the perfect hack for cooking perfectly poached eggs and a simple way to feed a crowd.
Summer is in full swing and that means life is busy! It also means a lot of guests and isn’t that what summer is all about?!
Nothing is more stressful than trying to come up with delicious and healthy breakfasts that feed a large group. That’s why this is the perfect dish for when guests come to visit.
Who doesn’t love a poached egg? But, as good as they are they can be a pain to cook. Very easy to mess up. Poached eggs are my favorite way to eat eggs especially over a nice buttered piece of toast.
These are super simple to make and everyone will love them. All you need is a muffin tin, eggs, water and a bit of seasoning.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray.
Add 1 tablespoon of water to each cup in the muffin tin.
Drop an egg into each cup and sprinkle with a bit of salt and pepper.
Bake for 8-10 minutes depending on how well you like your yolk cooked.
The less time you cook the egg the more runny the yolk will be. Always make sure the whites are cooked through.
Essential Tip: Speaking of the whites. When you bake your eggs you will notice a bit of water on top of the egg. Don’t let that fool you. It will look like the whites of the egg aren’t cooked, but they will be if it’s been at least 8-10 minutes. I made this mistake a couple of times and completely overcooked the yolks.
