Thermomix for "Poaching" Eggs

I first saw Tony Tan demonstrate this technique a few years ago, and then saw Dario Barrio, from Dassa Bassa restaurant in Madrid, demonstrate the same idea in his version of an English Breakfast at Alambique cooking school.

The eggs take on an interesting shape and it makes for a very easy method of "poaching" by wrapping the eggs in plastic wrap before "poaching"

"Poached" Eggs in the Thermomix

6 eggs
dariole moulds or small cups
plastic wrap
oil to grease
rubber bands
500g water


The plastic wrap is placed inside a dariole mould or cup so that the egg can be broken into it. I find it easier to grease the wrap before placing the eggs into the wrap and the parcels are then tied using a rubber band to seal it without air.

The little packages are then placed into the Thermomix basket.

Place the water into the TM bowl and cook for 6 minutes at Varoma temperature on Speed 1.

Place the basket with egg parcels into the TM bowl and "poach" for 4-6 minutes at Varoma temperature on Speed 1.

Season with S & P and serve immediately with toast soldiers.
