Poach Pods

December 28, 2010 at 3:08 pm 9 comments

I love eggs. They are a great, cheap source of protein and if you use farm fresh eggs, the flavor is out of this world! My favorite egg cooking method is poaching, but I’ve never liked poaching in straight water. Enter…the POACH POD! This little silicone wonder has revolutionized my mornings.

You just put the little pod into boiling water, spray the inside, crack the egg into it…cover and cook for 4-6 minutes and VOILA! If you’re a fan of poached eggs, you cannot live without this! Trust me 🙂

*this photo was over Christmas when we were poaching A LOT of eggs for our family!

    I think you meant to say “you cannot live withOUT this…”

    It looks great! I love poached eggs, but hate it when they leave a puddle of water on my plate. This would be a great solution…

    Ha! Yes, that’s what I meant. I changed it 🙂

    I bought a couple of these for my egg loving hubby for Christmas, they look great, glad to hear they work well.

    PS We just made our own hoops after being inspired by you, so thanks!

    so what are your thoughts about boiling or baking in silicone? just curious because these look so handy. i ‘heart’ eggs. I suppose when i fry i am frying on non-stick..which isn’t great. these do look very cool. i have a metal pan that you can poach in- i think i ditched it though.

    These look like a great idea! I love poached eggs and when I try to make them at home, I seem to lose some of the egg white in the water.

    Poached eggs are my favorite, too. These are cute, but if you get the water to a even simmer, poaching isn’t too hard to do. I’d love for you to peek at my blog sometime. I’m just starting and I’ve got to tell you that your blogs have been very inspiring to me.

    How often do you eat eggs and how many would you normally have in one sitting?

    I’d love to see a typical day’s food in your household, from breakfast to dinner and everything in between.

    I recently turned veggie after reading Eating Animals by Jonathan Safran Foer. To eat meat after this would be very difficult.

    I’ve also just invested in a wonderful smoothie machine and discovered the wonderful world of smoothies (and green ones!). They are so good and such a great way to be healthy.

    Thanks, Tee

Words to Eat By

"It is easier to change a man's religion than to change his diet." -Margaret Mead

"I don't understand why asking people to eat a well-balanced vegetarian diet is considered drastic, while it is medically conservative to cut people open and put them on cholesterol lowering drugs for the rest of their lives." - Dean Ornish, MD

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
