  • 1 teaspoon vinegar
  • 2 large eggs
  1. Bring about 2 inches of water to a simmer in a large pot. Add the vinegar to the water and stir. Crack each egg into a separate ramekin or coffee mug. When the water is still (do not boil), slowly tip the egg into the water. Allow the egg to sit in the water for a few seconds to allow the white to cook, then carefully fold over the egg white making sure it doesn't stick to the bottom of the pan. Once the egg yolk is set, remove the egg to a plate using a slotted spoon. Serve immediately.
