Totally Awesome Pirate Brain
Poached are hard man. I didn't know this until recently but egg yolk sets at around 150 degree, while the whites set at around 180 degrees. How much fun is that?I did a couple eggs in our new toaster oven tonight, quasi-poached, with seasonings and cheese. 15min @350degF. End result was tasty, but the yolks were slightly firmer than I’d like. Perhaps 9min next time.
The big news about it for me was that the little oval Le Creuset ceramic boats I bought on clearance a few years ago were PERFECT for the task. I did the two I had simultaneously, and I probably could have done another 3-4. And even though I plated tonight’s eggs on a bed of baby spinach, I could just as easily have served them in their baking dishes.
That does sound really good. I need to try a good solid shakshuka.
