What is a Poached Egg and What are the Different Cooking Methods?
Poached eggs are a type of boiled egg that is cooked by submerging the egg in simmering water. There are many different ways to cook a poached egg.
A poached egg is an easy way to make a healthy breakfast or brunch dish, and it can be served with other foods like toast, bacon, or avocado.
Poached eggs are usually prepared by placing the egg into a small pot of simmering water (which should not boil), and cooking for about 3 minutes. Once it has set for about 4 minutes and the white is firm, it is done.
The yolk will run all over the plate when served. The eggs should be removed from the pot with a slotted spoon and the water left to evaporate.
Poached eggs are easy to prepare, but sometimes the egg whites become rubbery and overcooked. They should be served with a nice runny yolk for an appetizing result.

This recipe will show you how to cook an egg in the slow cooker without any fuss or mess. .*Note: If you have a smaller slow cooker, the egg will be smaller.
Step 1: Place 1 cup of water in your slow cooker and insert the rack, if your slow cooker does not come with one. Using a wooden spoon or spatula, swirl the water to create a whirlpool in the bottom of the pot. If you are using a smaller pot, use less water so the egg does not end up in the middle.
Step 2: Crack an egg into a small bowl and carefully lower it into the water. If you are using an electric slow cooker, it should automatically start once you place the bowl in the pot. Otherwise, manually set your stovetop to LOW and cook until the white is cooked through and the yolk is just slightly runny about 5 to 6 minutes.
