That’s a wonderful breakfast egg. Poached egg prepared differently, but twice as delicious! Note the tips for the variations after the recipe heading.

2.1 Advantages of poached egg in the cell and professional correction…

A poached egg is properly cooked in vinegar water.

Poaching means letting it simmer under the boiling point.

You will find an original poached egg with fried potatoes and a poached egg with spinach elsewhere in my recipe blog.

The advantage of the preparation presented here is poached egg in a bowl:

  • It doesn’t smell like vinegar in the kitchen in the morning.
  • The eggs cook without much effort in the oven.
  • The serving is quick because you serve the poached eggs directly in the bowl.

Wonderful, now it can start!

2.2 Prepare the poached egg in the bowl…

Step by step preparing a delicious breakfast egg with basil

  • Preheat the oven to 120°C.
  • Pluck the basil and cut finely.
  • Spread the cups with butter.
  • Beat the eggs in a bowl.
  • Mix the eggs with salt, pepper and basil and pour into the buttered bowls.

Cook the eggs in the oven for 8-15 minutes. You can control the cooking degree of the eggs – very soft, fluffy, firm over the cooking time.
