How to Poach an Egg
When it comes to eggs, we all know there are so many tasty ways to enjoy them. From scrambled, to hard-boiled, to over-easy -- the options are endless and there's really no complaining about that. But when heading out on a nice Sunday brunch with friends, often times all we can think about is a delicious plate of eggs Benedict. Ah, yes, the perfect brunch dish consisting of an English muffin, Canadian bacon, hollandaise sauce and arguably the most important puzzle piece -- poached eggs!

But what if we were to tell you that you can easily cook them at home with virtually no hassle?
