Eggs can be an ideal ingredient for preparing healthy and delicious dishes. Among all egg dishes, poached eggs are worth highlighting, as they take only 3 minutes to cook and the yolk is still runny. According to experts, this method of cooking is the most correct, because the egg does not lose vitamins and useful microelements afterwards.

In a saucepan or stewpan (preferably with a double bottom so that the eggs do not stick), collect water at a level of 13-15 cm, the height of the water affects the shape of the egg in the finished form. Bring the water to a boil, add salt and vinegar, turn off the stove when the water has "calmed down" and immerse the eggs. After 30 seconds, turn the egg over with a slotted spoon to give it a rounded shape and then you can turn on the minimum heat (optional).
