Recipe type: Eggs / Breakfast
Simple Sous Vide Eggs. If you want to get technical, this should be cooked in a circulation sou vide bath, but this is the quick and easy version, requiring no special equipment, with very similar results to the real thing. I call them Simpson Eggs as a result of the spiky tops resembling Bart Simpson's hair.
- Take a piece of cling-wrap and a small dish. Rub a little butter in the dish, and then in the center of the plastic.
- Press the plastic into the dish and crack an egg into the indentation in the plastic.
- Lift the corners of the cling-wrap up together to enclose the egg. Repeat this until all of your eggs are wrapped.
- Half fill a pot with boiling water and put this over medium low heat. You don't want the water to boil, but merely keep the heat. The temperature should be between 70 & 80 Celcius.
- Using a double boiler makes this simpler, but this is not absolutely necessary.
- Hang the eggs over the edge of the pot so that the entire egg is in the hot water.
- Allow this to stand for 10 minutes, then lift the eggs from the water, unwrap them carefully and serve immediately.
