Fabulous Poached Egg


Poached egg is one of those things a lot of people are scared to try to make.  I think you would be surprised at how easy it is to prepare.  In this dish I wanted something easy and great to have anytime of the day.  I always like to add color to my dishes as I am a very visual person.  I love creating art with my dishes.  But I also love the taste to be outstanding.  I hope you enjoy.


1 Egg (or more)

A couple of slices of Avocado

1/2 of lemon juice

Salt and Pepper (to taste)

1/2 Bell Pepper (your choice on color, just remember 3 bumps on the bottom of a pepper means its sweeter)

Cilantro or Parsley for garnish

Some crumbled turkey bacon


Bring a Small or Medium pot of water to a light boil on low to medium heat.  Squeeze Lemon juice.  Slowly crack egg and drop into water.  Should take about 4 minutes or so. Always remove eggs with a slotted spoon. Place 1/2 of the Bell pepper into a martini glass (yes, a martini glass.  They are not just used for drinking). Place poached egg inside. Add your avocado and garnishes and enjoy.

  1. Tony and I love this! Visually it is beautiful and I (HERs) has messed up poached eggs numerous times… didn’t know the lemon juice goes in the water… You rock Miss Creative!

    1. Why thank you! Yes either lemon or vinegar. The acid in the water will help the egg hold its shape 😉

  2. Nice! Looks yummy!
    I tried poaching eggs for the first time a few weeks ago…I used a bit of rice vinegar in the water…I read somewhere you could use water in a pan and place mason jar rings into the water to help the eggs stay together too….it was a DISASTER. So the eggs stuck to the pan and the rings and I had egg stuck everywhere. So you use a deep pot of water? And the eggs should float? They shouldn’t touch the bottom I assume. :s I’m going to try again soon.

    1. Yes you use a deep pot of water. You dont want it to be completely boiling you know. Then you add the lemon or vinegar. Keep trying it will workout eventually 😉

  6. Poached eggs are one of my favorite foods! I have yet to get up the courage to try it myself at home, but you made it sound easy so I may have to give it a shot!
