Poached Eggs

Recipe by Thermomixer

6 eggs

dariole moulds or small cups

plastic wrap

oil to grease

rubber bands

500g water

Method:

The plastic wrap is placed inside a dariole mould or cup so that the egg can be broken into it. I find it easier to grease the wrap before placing the eggs into the wrap and the parcels are then tied using a rubber band to seal it without air.

The little packages are then placed into the Thermomix basket.

Place the water into the TM bowl and cook for 6 minutes at Varoma temperature on Speed 1.

Place the basket with egg parcels into the TM bowl and “poach” for 4-6 minutes at Varoma temperature on Speed 1.

Season with S & P and serve immediately with toast soldiers

    I have tried Thermomixer’s recie above and it is a winner. I however seem to have moved to poaching my eggs in the Varoma. I line the dish or tray of the Varoma with the silicone cupcake cases. I use silicone cupcake case as they seem to hold the shape but allow the gentle heat to cook through. I spray and then crack an egg into each one. I lightly season the top of each one. I add 500 grms water to the jug and place on varoma temp for around 14mins on speed 3. I have been able to poach up to 12 at a time using this method. Place the varoma trays on top and watch them transform!!

    The timing will vary depending on whether you like a soft centred or more cooked. ENJOY :)

    The poached eggs using your silicone cupcake case method worked perfectly. I received lots of appreciative comments. Thanks Steph.

    I, too, like the silicone mould method, as I’m not comfortable with heating plastic wrap against my food and silicone is an inert substance which doesn’t leach into food ;)
