What Are Poached Eggs?
Have you ever heard of poached eggs? Have you wondered what they are and how to make them? Poached eggs are a type of egg made by cooking the egg in water or other liquid, like milk. The egg white becomes firm and opaque while the yolk stays runny. They are delicious on toast with some butter! You can serve poached eggs for breakfast or as an appetizer at your next dinner party.

What is the egg setting on instant pot?
The egg setting is ideal for making hard-boiled eggs. It’s programmed for 5 minutes, which will result in hard-boiled eggs.

When you cook an egg at high pressure for five minutes, the yolk may overcook. This is especially likely if there are large air bubbles in your boiling water when poaching, so don’t forget those!
