Perfect Sous Vide Poached Eggs

Perfect Sous Vide Poached Eggs

This method is foolproof and not exquisitely time dependent once at least 45 minutes has passed.  It is inherently a function of temperature, which should be adjusted up or down in single degree increments to get the yolk and white exactly as you like it.  Once you do, you can dial it in and know that your eggs will always be just perfect according to your preferences.

Makes up to 12 eggs


1 to 12 large eggs


  1. Fill and preheat the SousVide Supreme to 147F/64C
  2. Put eggs, in their shells, directly onto the bottom perforated grill of the water oven.
  3. Cook for 60 to 90 minutes.
  4. Remove from the water oven and crack the egg directly onto its serving platform.

Quick Poached Egg Method

This method is quicker, but as the eggs cook hotter than the temperature to perfectly cook them, regardless of time, you must set a time.  At this temperature, they will be poached in 15 to 20 minutes.  Leaving them longer will begin to hard cook them.  Experiment to find out if 15 minutes is perfect for you or is it 17, 18, or 20?
