Story Behind this Recipe
This is a handy recipe for when you want to make soft-poached eggs. All you have to do is remember the water measurements, it's that easy.
Any amount of water in the ratio of ☆5:★1 works for this. Just increase the amount of water in the same ratio when you have a lot of eggs. If you dampen the eggs, you'll be able to prevent the shells from cracking. Adjust the cooking time depending on your pan and stovetop. It should take about 15 minutes, but experiment to find your prefect doneness.
