Poached Scrambled Boiling Vortex Eggs

Arthur shared with me this post and I decided to give Daniel Patterson’s “poached scrambled eggs” a try. Short version of the story – it works. Swirling a pot filled with water and dropping beaten eggs into the boiling whirlpool for 20 seconds before straining will create fluffy scrambled eggs.

I was skeptical at first about how the eggs would turn out. As the eggs swirled around, I peeked into the pot and saw that the eggs had shredded as it circulated through the whirpool. It didn’t look tasty, and it didn’t even look cooked. It just looked like a messy glob of yellow strings. After straining though, the egg somehow coagulated together and became a nice bed of fluffy eats. I’d definitely recommend trying it at least once, at least because it’s such an interesting and quick way to cook eggs.

    I will have to try this. I love scrambled eggs. I’d definitely recommend trying cooking scrambled eggs over a water bath (in a bain marie), if you haven’t already another great way to cook them, takes a little while, but worth it.

      I had never heard of cooking it in a double boiler! Thanks for the suggestion, will definitely try. Hope the vortex works well for you :)
