Poached Eggs

Serious Eats has a great tutorial/ post on how to make poached eggs.


  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.
  2. Add the pasta and cook until al dente, about 8-10 minutes.
  3. Drain the pasta and reserve 1/4 cup of the pasta water.
  4. In a large skillet over medium heat, melt butter.  
  5. Add the ham and cook until the edges are bit crispy.  
  6. Add the pasta water. Stir until combined with butter.
  7. Add the pasta and parsley, reserving a few pinches of parsley for garnish.  
  8. Season with salt and pepper.  
  9. Toss pasta until the pasta is coated with butter sauce and ham is evenly distributed. 
  10. Divide pasta into 6 serving and top with one poached egg and a pinch of parsley. 


You can substitute a sunny side up fried egg for the poached egg.
