What I do have experience with is working as a chef/cook for the Marriott corporation and doing a lot of fancy banquet style meals... One popular breakfast/luncheon menu item was eggs Benedict, and what a royal pain in the butt it was, we always had one chef/cook dedicated full time to making the poached eggs, and at the end of the day you end up tossing as many away as you served based on looks alone a royal pain...

Don't get me started on eggs Benedict! Poached eggs + Hollandaise breaking, what a nightmare!

Well it's, alright now,

I learned my lesson well. See ya,

can't please everyone, so ya,

gotta please yourself.

 

The factory of the future will have only two employees, a man and a dog. The man will be there to feed the dog. The dog will be there to keep the man from touching the equipment. ~Warren Bennis~

We love eggs all ways too.  Poached are definitely the most difficult to get right, that's probably why I don't make them more often.

 

If you have leftover mashed potatoes, you can mix them together with an egg or two and add some onion powder and make them into patties.  Fry them in butter or bacon grease till they're as crispy as you want them, then top them with a fried or poached egg.  Yummm...

:pop Curiously waiting your responses... :pop


We have a 4-egg poacher and are thinking about buying a 6-egg one.  We cook for 6 minutes after the water starts to simmer.  I prefer it to fried or boiled.
