How To Cook Poach Eggs In a Steam Oven
Poaching eggs in your Steam oven is just one more way to make good use of this versatile appliance. To poach eggs, first heat the oven in the Steam mode, grease an oven-proof ramekin with some spray oil then crack the egg directly into the ramekin. Allow approximately 5 minutes and 30 seconds cooking time for a large cold egg.
Eggs can also be poached over some cooked vegetables mixed with some cheese. If the vegetables are cold from the refrigerator for best results heat the cold vegetables a little before adding the egg. The first.t time I made poached eggs like this for a training event we had some leftovers, we reheated those the following day using the Refresh mode in the Steam oven and were surprised to find that they were still absolutely delicious.
2 4oz oven-proof ramekins
2 large eggs
For Poached Eggs with Sauteed Vegetables
¼ cup cooked chopped broccoli, spinach, mushrooms, or potato
1 tbsp grated cheddar or your preferred cheese
Heat the oven in the Steam mode to 212F degrees.
Spray the inside of the ramekins and crack an egg into each one.
Cook for approximately 5.30 seconds.
Poached Eggs with Sauteed Vegetables
Heat the oven and prepare the ramekins. Add the vegetables and place the ramekins in the oven for 2 minutes for the vegetables to heat through. Remove the ramekins from the oven, stir in the cheese then crack the egg into the ramekin. Cook for approximately 5.30 seconds.
When adding multiple ramekins to the oven at one time, place the ramekins into the perforated pan for ease of handling.
