Several months ago I was sent a Sous Vide Supreme water bath machine to trial and review; in return for my wonderful machine, and I have loved using it on many occasions, I committed to creating several recipes and you can see my three previous recipe posts here:

SousVide Supreme Chicken Three Ways! Chicken Cordon Bleu, Lemon Thyme Chicken Kebabs & Chicken with Beans

Sous Vide Salmon Three Ways! Sticky Asian Salmon, Salmon Pasta and Salmon Salad with Wasabi Dressing

Easy Summer Dining: Bourbon Beef and Pepper Skewers and Accompaniments (Sous Vide)

I have cooked chicken, fish and beef in my sous vide so far, and my last post today is all about eggs, or to be more exact, poached eggs.

I have to admit that these poached egg recipes did not come easily at first, and I have practised and practised getting the cooking method just right! But, I have finally cracked it, excuse the pun, and for any sous vide water bath owners, I hope the following recipes will help and inspire you if you have a hankering for eggs.

My three recipes today are for: Basic Sous Vide Water Bath Poached Eggs, Poached Eggs and Smoked Haddock with Spinach and Poached Eggs and Bacon on Sourdough Toast……so, a basic method for poached eggs, both a slow and quick method, perfect for any “on toast” breakfast situations. Then a “posh eggs and bacon” recipe for soft eggs with crisp bacon on sourdough toast and finally an elegant supper dish of smoked haddock with soft egg and spinach, where the smoked haddock is also cooked in the sous vide water bath.

Just to refresh you about how the sous vide Supreme water bath machine works…….The sous vide technique has been the secret of great chefs worldwide for decades. The SousVide Supremen is an amazing new all-in-one sous vide water oven designed to bring the sous vide culinary technique into home kitchens and restaurants at an affordable price. The sous vide (pronounced “soo-veed”) technique involves cooking food in vacuum-sealed pouches submerged in a water bath held at a precisely controlled temperature. This foolproof method eliminates guesswork and lets anyone cook foods with incomparable taste and texture: steak perfectly cooked edge-to-edge, vibrant vegetables, juicy tender chicken breasts, and ribs with the meat literally falling off the bone. All at the push of a button! (Sous-Vide Supreme Website)

That’s all for today, I will be back soon with some more new recipes, including some 5:2 diet recipes, as well as a new giveaway and some book reviews…….have a great day and see you soon, Karen

Perfect when served as a special breakfast or brunch or as a snack,  light lunch or a dinner party starter.

Directions

Step 1 Fill the sous-vide Supreme water bath and set the temperature to 75C/167F.
Step 2 When the temperature has been reached on the sous vide Supreme water bath, add the egg into the water bath in it's shell.
Step 3 Set the timer for 15 minutes and when the time is up, gently remove the egg with a slotted spoon. (If you want to slow poach the eggs, then set the temperature for 64C/148F and leave them in there for 45 minutes to 1 hour)
Step 4 Whilst the egg is cooking, grill, fry or oven bake the bacon until it is crisp and cooked. Then drain the slices of bacon on some kitchen towel and keep them warm.

Step 6 Split the remaining rasher of bacon into 2 pieces and prop them up on top of the egg and toast, being careful not to break the yolk.

    Heavenly eggs Karen! I am a total sucker for soft poached eggs and your recipes are all so lovely. Just perfect Sunday morning lazy brunch stuff….the kind of food that makes me really really happy!

    • says

      Thanks Anneli! I was very pleased with these recipes and for those who don’t have a magic sous vide machine, then you can just poach them as usual in a pan of boiling water!
      They would all be wonderful for a lazy Sunday morning brunch, I agree!
      Karen

    Wonderful timing Karen, I have bought a sous vide and am still a bit nervous about it. I cooked chicken breasts on Sunday then couldn’t sleep for worrying that I had poisoned myself and my husband. Obviously we were fine, it was cooked properly and tasted lovely! Poached eggs are next on my to do list and I wanted to have smoked haddock with them. Guess what we will be eating tomorrow? Thank you for posting and I will look forward to future posts. I’m off to look at your friend’s blog now.

      BRILLIANT Marie! I am so pleased that you have more confidence now and chicken was the first thing I cooked when I got my sous vide machine too! You will soon get the hang of it! Karen
