Perfect Poached Eggs

Yummy Eggs

Poached eggs with Sauce Hollandaise

and

I have to admit: I’m not good at poaching eggs.

Not long ago a friend of mine posted a photo of a perfectly poached egg on a toast on her FB Timeline and she explained some basics to me.

Today I had a bit of time and looked online for some info on the subject. I found this clear video footage by Jamie with some tricks and maybe his best trick is to pack the egg in some foil while cooking.

And see while drafting this post, a post about a Breakfast Blog pops up…..

I’ve tried it on two eggs today and I succeeded and without the foil trick. It is not difficult at all, you just need to practice. The second video also helps to understand the process a bit better and the third is for the microwave addicts.

Fresh eggs, not a lot of water in the pan, stirring is not very necessary and no vinegar to help the egg white coagulate. With a low water level a lid is helpful when the yolk sticks out of the water. Next step: Learning to make a nice Sauce Hollandaise. Yummie.

I add two links as a reminder: Eggs Benedict accoring to Simply Recipies and and easy pease written story about egg poaching.

Happy some pages are back

Pages lost found back

I found out I had imported part of this site into a non visible WordPress.com site some time ago. There I found the pages that I had lost when I migrated the site once again last year, still intact, but not very updated. I’ve imported them here and am happy again.

Oh, yes, the site is protected by Vaultpress and Vaultpress should be able to do a migration seamlessly. That didn’t happen with the last migration unfortunately.

10 Years Happy Hotelier

In June, 2004, I started as a co editor of the Dutch Language blog Weekendhotel and on August 23, 2006 Happy Hotelier was born. So while celebarting 10 years of Happy Hotelier, I may not be allowed to call myself a veteran blogger anymore. Now maybe I should call myself a Jurassic Blogger with 12 years of blogging behind my belt.

Still planning to continue this blog in the foreseeable future.
and off course my other blogs:
Chairblog,
Absolutely The Hague,
Haagspraak, and
