Q:

How do you use an egg poacher pan?

A:

Fill the egg poaching pan with half an inch of water and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Spray the cups with cooking spray. Crack one egg into each cup and cover and cook until done.

The eggs should take about 2 to 4 minutes to cook. Remove the eggs from the pan and place on individual plates. Season with salt and pepper or other seasonings. The traditional way to serve poached eggs is over buttered toast. However, they can also be served over hash, on pancakes or combined with smoked salmon over brioche. Poached eggs are generally healthier than fried eggs.
